Pacolet Milliken Selling 2,900 Acres for Industrial Use

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Pacolet Milliken Selling 2,900 Acres for Industrial Use

Pacolet Milliken Enterprises, Ipacolet logonc. said it is preparing to sell approximately 2,900 acres in Spartanburg and Laurens counties with the potential for 12 million square feet of industrial development.

Contained in five major tracts, it would represent one of the largest industrial real estate offerings in the Upstate in recent years. It wasn’t known Thursday if any specific industrial projects are planned on the land.

John Montgomery, Pacolet Milliken’s vice president of real estate, said the properties could be used for distribution centers or manufacturing facilities.

Spartanburg-based Pacolet Milliken said it has retained Colliers International for brokerage services.

Pacolet Milliken officials said the property is coming onto the market at a prime time as the Upstate becomes increasingly desirable for major manufacturing and distribution development. Driving the demand is the region’s location between Atlanta and Charlotte, along with access to major highways, airports and railways, the officials said.

Laurens Taking Steps to Remove Dilapidated Building

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Laurens Taking Steps to Remove Dilapidated Building

Laurens City Council is taking steps to remove a dangerous and dilapidated building in the downtown.

The property at the corner of Highway 221 and East Main Street was taped off in May. The roof is caving in, the bricks are crumbling, glass is broken and the building is filled with asbestos. City leaders say it’s structurally unsafe and a danger to pedestrians.

Cities can tear down vacant, unsafe buildings as long as they attempt to notify the owner. However, city officials say it would cost around $90,000 in taxpayer money to clear away the eyesore. If they invest the time and money, they’d like to own the property so they have a say in what happens to it after the building is gone.

Black Church Sues for Deed to Building Housing KKK Store

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Black Church Sues for Deed to Building Housing KKK Store
September 2, 2008

By Eric Connor Greenville News

A black Laurens County church is asking a judge to affirm that it owns a historic downtown building that for more than a decade has been home to a self-proclaimed “KKK Museum” selling Klan-related merchandise.

New Beginning Baptist Church on Tuesday filed a lawsuit in Laurens County civil court accusing the owner of The RedNeck Shop, John Howard, and others of filing deeds to transfer ownership of the old Echo Theatre building to other Klan members — a move the church claims ignores its rightful ownership.

The church has owned the property since 1997 — a year after the shop opened — when its original owner deeded the property to the church, the suit alleges. The only condition in transferring ownership to the church is that Howard be allowed to operate the business until he dies, according to the suit.
