Gracie Plaza at the Arena District — the intersection of urban renewal and restorative design

The Upstate Business Journal recently took a look at major mixed-use projects in the Upstate. We were pleased to see the article list two of our projects.

BridgeWay Station

Phil Hughes is developing BridgeWay Station, a 450,000 square foot, mixed-used project in Mauldin near Interstate 385. We created a beautiful, European-influenced design with the feel of an Italian plaza for this development. The project includes retail, various dining concepts, office and residential space. Phase One of BridgeWay Station will cost about $150 million and should be completed later this year.

Gracie Plaza at the Arena District

NR Investments, based in Florida is developing an exciting mixed-use project on the site of the old Greenville Memorial Auditorium. The Greenville Gateway project, called Gracie Plaza at the Arena District, will transform the entrance to downtown from Interstate 385.

Plans call for two interconnected towers, one with sixteen stories and the other with seven, featuring almost 300 apartments and 8,000 square feet of retail space. A central public plaza will anchor the towers and offer access from North Church Street and Beattie Place. The project is currently under review with Greenville’s Design Review Board urban panel — we expect the go-ahead later this summer.

Both of these projects will embody our principles of restorative design and serve as economic and community hubs. Hughes Investments and NRI both have extensive experience with municipal projects of this size and complexity. We’re proud that they selected Johnston Design Group for their design and architecture.
