Development in Florence Picking Up


Changes are coming to the area in and around what is supposed to become a hospitality district on Florenceā€™s west side.

Several new projects are in the works in the area around Magnolia Mall and the Florence Civic Center, and others are set to begin shortly.

Area leaders say the current wave of development, and re-development, in the area that stretches from David H. McLeod Boulevard and North Beltline Drive to the interstates, is likely just the tip of the iceberg.

More activity is expected in the next few years as the state and nation move out of the Great Recession.

Florence City Councilman Buddy Brand Jr. said improvements to the area, including pedestrian connectivity, traffic flow studies and signage, will compliment the continued development of the western gateway into the city.
