A very large crane was placed on Falls St that was closed for the operation on April 22. It reached over the new building to the west side and took the tower crane down piece by piece. At 10:00 the horizontal pieces were all removed and when I came by at 12:30 the final tower piece was being unloaded by the crew.
Interesting that they are drilling deep foundations for this project.

Construction of the bow roof of this new building on Cleveland Street overlooking the Reedy River. A Facebook post said “It’s work/home space. Parking underneath. Main level office. Upper level living space.”
Will have great views of the river and the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
As part of the makeover of the facilities in McPherson park, asphalt in the parking area was replaced with gravel held in place by a grid. This allows water to enter the soil instead of immediately running off into the creek. Every little bit helps to prevent stormwater issues later.
Demolition of the Wyche Law Firm Building has commenced to make way for the Grand Bohemian Hotel.
View from Falls Park across the Reedy River.
With this project the best free parking spots in GVL next to the Liberty Bridge are now history, to be replaced by green space in the final design. It will take two years to complete the project, with the Wyche Law Firm building demolition to take 3 to 4 months according to a project superintendent we spoke to.
The City of Greenville held an online auction that ended on January 30. Winning bidders are required to dismantle and remove these buildings. The winning bidders paid a very small amount for these pre-engineered buildings,- it will be interesting to learn where they will be re-erected!
Other winning bidders have already removed all the existing chain link fencing from the site.
