Spartanburg Buildings Set for Renovation


Entities are investing to repurpose three historic buildings in downtown Spartanburg.

These historic buildings have a rich Spartanburg history, and soon will house Spartanburg Community College’s new downtown campus; an additional downtown presence for the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine; and residential apartments for those seeking the downtown lifestyle, said Patty Bock, the city of Spartanburg’s economic development director.

“They are investing their dollars and making an impact on our downtown, enabling others to be successful in the area. There’s so much momentum in downtown right now,” Bock said. “We’re hoping to attract more residential options, service-oriented businesses, bigger businesses and mixed-use developments.”

Spartanburg Community College plans to invest roughly $16 million — a combination of school funds, private and public funds, and federal grants — to renovate the Evans Building at 142 S. Dean St. for its new downtown campus, according to college officials and documents. It is expected to open by fall 2013.
