Final Master Plan Presentation Meeting

5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, 2019
Greenville Chamber of Commerce, 24 Cleveland St., Greenville

Please join us for a presentation of the completed Downtown Master Plan. The plan is a roadmap for downtown’s future development and will help the community to prioritize investments and overall placemaking.


Background

The City of Greenville hired Urban Design Associates, an international urban design and architecture firm headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to develop a strategic master plan for downtown Greenville. The objectives of the plan were to attract and retain businesses, residents, and visitors while ensuring the uniqueness and authenticity of downtown; position downtown for the attraction and retention of a workforce for the new economy, and continue the right blend of development and redevelopment. 


The planning process took several months and the project team worked with a variety of downtown stakeholders - including property owners, residents, businesses, developers, philanthropies and elected officials - to develop a unified vision and comprehensive implementation strategy. In addition to Urban Design Associates, the project team also included Hawkins Partners (landscape architecture/public space design); HR&A Advisors (market analysis); Thomas & Hutton (civil engineering); and Walker Parking (parking strategy).
