About This Show
Jim Hammond is Editor of GSA Business, the biweekly newspaper serving senior level business decision-makers in the upstate region of SC. He and Josh Parker, a Durham, NC, developer, talk with Dr. Edgar about plans to renovate Woodside Mill, just outside Greenville, once the world’s largest cotton mill.
Parker’s aim is to breathe new life into Greenville’s struggling Textile Crescent with a plan to redevelop the 500,000 square feet of factory space into a multi-use community that includes 260 market-rate apartments and 91,000 square feet of office and retail space. It also will include studios for bohemian artists like those who have set up shop nearby.
