In the old Water Tower District on Greenville’s West Side sits an old abandoned cotton warehouse that dates back to 1919. This nearly 100 year old site is about to experience a complete transformation that will redefine the old industrial area into a modern multi-purpose site that aims to bring more indie business to the area.
Hampton Station Set To Bring More Business To West Side
This site, which offers 100,000 square feet of space is expected to attract various independent businesses that will give Hampton Station a vibrant feel for those who will work and visit the area. The new Birds Fly South Ale Project, a brewery featuring small-batch brews, has already staked its claim on a 9,000 square foot space. Other spaces, ranging in size from 800 to 14,000 square feet have already attracted commitments from Lion’s Roar Cross Fit, Dapper Ink, Invert Skate Shop, and Studio B Artup. The project’s developer has said that the demand for space in Hampton Station is strong and they expect to also include high-end food providers such as an ice cream maker and a juice company, and even a dog park.
Hampton Station Features Iconic Water Tower
The existing rustic water tower stands among abandoned buildings and along the railroad tracks at the Hampton Station site. As merchants are finding it difficult to find and afford spaces in downtown Greenville, this idea of revitalizing the historic industrial area is attractive to a variety of types of businesses looking for a convenient locale. Situated on land that is directly at the head of the new projected $1.3 million Hampton Avenue pedestrian bridge, businesses at Hampton Station will benefit by the bridge that gives access to the Southernside community. Not only will businesses benefit by this access, and a newly projected Swamp Rabbit Trail extension, the expectation is that Hampton Station will provide jobs to those in Southernside while integrating and enhancing the existing community.
Expect More Development In Greenville’s West Side
This news of the revitalized Hampton Station is welcomed by many Greenville companies as they look to the future of their own businesses.
