Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Phase III of Patrick Square Subdivision Underway

Clemson’s Patrick Square is a traditional neighborhood development (TND) being built to the latest environmental standards. The community will contain more than 400 residences within walking distance of a Town Center filled with shops, restaurants and other small businesses. The Town Center is already home to the Clemson University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the City of Clemson’s growing farmers’ market. Patrick Square has seen growing sales since completion of the first model homes in late 2008. Now nearly 70 families call Patrick Square home.

Infrastructure work is now underway for Phase III at Patrick Square with sales of lots 87-112 opening to the general public on September 14th. A few remaining Village home and custom lots in Phase I and II are available for immediate purchase. Single-family Village homes range from 1,482 SF to 2,705 SF with prices starting in the $230,000’s. All homes are EarthCraft Certified for energy efficiency and sustainability.

The 4,000 SF Lake House was completed in July. It features a large social space, billiard room, fitness center, swimming pool, playground, catering kitchen and beautiful views of the stocked lake and nature preserve. Patrick Square also recently completed a pedestrian bridge spanning 18-Mile Creek and connecting to Nettles Park, Clemson’s premier recreational facility.

Reserve at Lake Keowee Expanding

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Reserve at Lake Keowee Expanding
– GSA Business

The Reserve at Lake Keowee broke ground on a collection of four vacation homes adjacent to its Guest House.

While the real estate market remains soft, three of the four new homes have already sold.

“We have been planning this kind of a home collection at The Reserve for more than a year,” said Chuck Pigg, vice president of Greenwood Communities and Resorts and community manager of The Reserve at Lake Keowee. “Our goal across the Greenwood Communities and Resorts portfolio of communities has been to lead the way out of the recession by creating homes that meet today’s new reality of second-home ownership. Buyers are seeking the utmost value, tending to favor smaller, more manageably sized homes in communities that give them the fullest spectrum of engaging activities, scenic beauty and responsible development practices. The Guest House Cottages’ success gives us great confidence for future, similar home offerings.”

Clemson City Council Wants Action on Site near Lake Hartwell

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Clemson City Council Wants Action on Site near Lake Hartwell
– Greenville News

A clearly frustrated Clemson City Council has directed its zoning and codes director to draft a resolution aimed at getting an eyesore removed from a prime piece of property on Lake Hartwell.

Developers at the old Lake Hartwell Inn site announced two years ago plans for a $5 million condominium project, but to date little has been done there.

Zoning and Codes Director Bob Vecchio told the council Monday night that he has been told “numerous times” by the owner of the property that the old hotel building was going to be demolished – the most recent assurance coming earlier Monday.

Clemson University Students Battle in Appraisal Competition

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Clemson University Students Battle in Appraisal Competition

Clemson University’s Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program recently held an “appraisal competition” among the second year graduate students. I was asked to serve as a judge, along with the following real estate professionals.

  • Chuck Walsh, MAI, Director Of Sales, The Reserve at Lake Keowee
  • Nick French, Professor in Real Estate & DTZ Fellow in CRE, Oxford Brookes University
  • Bruce A. Kellogg, MAI, ARGUS Software, Past National President – Appraisal Institute

The students were divided into teams of five, and the properties to be appraised including flex buildings, a grocery anchored retail center with excess land and outparcels, an office building and several properties involved in a land swap – none of them were easy properties! The students did great, both with their reports and their PowerPoint presentations. This Clemson program is top notch and in good hands under the guidance of Dr. J. Terrence Farris, CRE, AICP and Elaine M. Worzala. I fully expect these students to go on to do great things in the real estate profession!

Publix Receives Approval for Zoning Variance in Clemson

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Publix Receives Approval for Zoning Variance in Clemson
– UpstateToday.com

Developers for the new Publix on Freedom Drive successfully completed the latest hurdle as the Clemson Board of Zoning Appeals recently approved a variance allowing light poles to be installed at a height of 33 feet.

“The variance was to give the applicant the ability to install taller light poles in the parking lot,” said Bob Vecchio, Zoning Director for the city of Clemson.

The variance request, issued by Tom Hamilton, of the Hamilton Property Group, surpasses the previous maximum height of 20 feet to the top of the light.

-UpstateToday.com

Scott Vick had to know there wouldn’t be a lot of soft questions when he outlined plans for his Keowee River development to members of the Mountain Lakes Community Association (MLCA) Monday night.

There weren’t.

Vick, who, with a group of local business developers, plans to convert 775 acres along S.C. 130 into a planned, cross-generational community and eco-adventure tourism site, fielded a limited number of questions after his presentation, but they were all hardballs.

Is Manufacturing the Key to Oconee’s Future?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Is Manufacturing the Key to Oconee’s Future?
– UpstateToday.com

More jobs have disappeared from the manufacturing sector than any other job-producing category in Oconee County over the past decade, a review of state employment data in the county from 1999-2008 shows.

In 1999, manufacturing employed a monthly average of 9,958 workers in Oconee. Subsequently, the decline of manufacturing jobs went into free-fall until hitting bottom in 2007 when the average monthly employment number leveled off at 5,283. In 2008, the monthly average improved slightly to 5,356 workers employed in manufacturing.

Despite a deep national recession, some construction continues in the Upstate, including residential home construction on Lake Keowee. Leaders expect a flurry of activity when the recession ends.

Oconee County’s view of the future may be temporarily obstructed by a recessionary haze, but people whose job it is to look beyond the present remain convinced that the sun eventually will shine once more … and brightly at that.
