Development Site in Downtown Greenville Under Contract


Phase two of the Bookends project in downtown Greenville received a new developer following Greenville City Council’s unanimous vote Monday.

Russ Davis of Davis Property Group LLC has entered into a purchase agreement with Charlie Whitmire. After years of no movement on the property, Davis will buy phase two of the Bookends project in downtown Greenville from Charlie Whitmire’s Washington Bookends LLC.

Greenville City Council unanimously approved the transfer of property, a new development agreement with Davis and $150,000 in public improvements to the site at East Washington Street, north of the Spring Street parking garage.

After finding a lack of demands for condominiums, Whitmire, owner of The Whitmire Co., will pay the city $102,000 in accrued penalties due since construction didn’t begin on time. That money, along with $48,000 generated from phase one of the Bookends, will be used to fund the public improvements.
