Plush Mill development planned for former West Greenville industrial complex


New office and storage space would replace a dilapidated industrial complex directly across U.S. 123 from the St. Francis Downtown hospital in West Greenville, according to plans on file at City Hall.

Plans for the proposed redevelopment of the former Piedmont Plush Mill property at the corner of Easley Bridge Road (U.S. 123) and Traction Street were included with an annexation and zoning request filed at City Hall by Mark B. Peters, president of Britt, Peters and Associates, a Greenville civil and structural engineering firm.

Peters didn’t immediately return a phone call Friday seeking comment.

The plans show a single-story, 24,150-square-foot office building and a three-story, 72,000-square-foot storage building on the triangular 2.94-acre site.

A brochure from CBRE, the commercial real estate brokerage, shows a different configuration of the redevelopment that includes retail space.

The new development would be called Plush Mill, according to the brochure, and feature open space, high ceilings, original flooring, exposed brick walls and skylights in refurbished buildings that used to be part of a textile mill.

The Greenville Planning Commission is scheduled to take up the annexation and zoning request during a 4 p.m. meeting at City Hall on Thursday, Dec. 15.

The proposed redevelopment is the third proposed redevelopment of a former West Greenville textile mill to surface in recent weeks.

At the former Judson Mill just down U.S. 123, a North Carolina developer, Belmont Sayre, has proposed 190,000 square feet of office/warehouse/light manufacturing space in three buildings, 402,800 square feet of residential space in three buildings, and 60,000 square feet of retail space in two new buildings.

At the former Woodside Cotton Mill along Woodside Avenue, a developer plans 300 apartments, a general store, offices, an event venue, a brewery or restaurant and possibly townhomes, according to an annexation petition filed by Woodside Mill Properties LLC.
