Located halfway between two of Greenville’s iconic textile manufacturing factories –Woodside Mill and Monaghan Mill – the intersection of Woodside Avenue and East Parker Road sits at the epicenter of the Textile Crescent. Once a prosperous small retail center, the vacant buildings at 235 East Parker Road have continued to decay year after year, even with so much progress happening all around the property.
All that began to change in 2021, when Greenville Revitalization Corporation purchased the land and began talking with county leaders about a new vision that could catalyze the economic transformation of this once-thriving area.
Named City View Corners, the new development isn’t a refurbished or remodeled building, but rather a completely new addition to the Textile Crescent. The 17,000 square foot mixed-use building will feature eleven affordable apartments on the second floor, and retail/office space on the first.
Designed by Scott Powell, a partner at Greenville architectural firm Craig Gaulden Davis, the look and feel of the new structure will combine the classic brick aesthetics of the Textile Crescent’s landmark mills, with contemporary accents.
Work on the project, set to begin in early 2022, is the first new construction in the area surrounding Woodside and Monaghan mills in 50 years. Commercial leasing for City View Corners is being handled by Avison Young.
Three business have already committed to space in the new property: Fringe Salon, My PR Lab and Daisy’s Bodega. The latter is owned by David Hawkins, whose grandfather ran City View Restaurant on the very grounds where City View Corners is being built.
We look forward to revealing more as construction approaches. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out via the contact methods below.
