Greenville, South Carolina
When a local, Greenville, SC developer was seeking a designer to replace the Greenville News building – a downtown landmark – with a mixed-use development, Wakefield Beasley was the obvious choice. The firm was tasked with creating a development that fit contextually in the traditional fabric of downtown Greenville while revitalizing the area with a contemporary, high-end feel. While working closely with the local jurisdictions involved, the Multi-family studio was able to propose a design solution for the residential component of the project that introduces a transformational building to the downtown area of Greenville. This building embraces the existing Greenville news building, embraces the industrial history of Greenville and all the while creates a contemporary style all its own. The new Camperdown Residence at the Greenville News site will have 225 units, unique architectural details and service as a new landmark for the downtown area.
