By Rudolph Bell – Greenville News

Greenville developer Bob Hughes is creating a new home for Next, a group of technology entrepreneurs organized by the Greater Greenville Chamber of Commerce.

Hughes said he plans to turn an unoccupied building at the corner of Church Street and University Ridge into new office space for Next member companies, giving them the shared premises they have long sought. The $10 million development would also include 24 one-bedroom condominiums attached to the office space, Hughes said.

The 2.5-acre site is near County Square, Greenville County’s main office complex, and was formerly a warehouse for Cameron Barkley Co., an electrical supplies distributor.

Eight members of Next, all of them small technology companies, plan to take space in the development, which will be called the Next Innovation Center, said Hughes and Brenda Laakso, the Chamber’s vice president for entrepreneurship and small business.
