Greenville News Building to be ‘Demolished’


The Greenville News building on South Main Street is slated to be “demolished,” said city of Greenville Mayor Knox White on Thursday.

The 4-acre building, located at 305 S. Main St., across from the Peace Center, has been the subject of debate because of its central location and large footprint in the center of downtown Greenville.

“It’s a prime site,” White said at a GSA Business Power Event at the TD Convention Center Thursday evening. “People have observed that that, among other sites, would make an incredibly site for a convention center.”

Greenville News Media Group President and Publisher Steve Brandt said commercial real estate firm CBRE Inc. was handling the transaction and had begun preliminary talks with potential buyers in the beginning of the year. “Maybe the mayor knows more about that than I do. He’s certainly in a position to know who might buy it and what they plan to do with it, but that would be entirely up to the people who buy it.”
