GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A new development in Greenville's West End aims to give a facelift to some old buildings.
The 62,000-square-foot, mixed-use development, called Markley Terrace, will be built on 2 1/2 acres near the intersection of Markley and Academy streets.
The three buildings on the property, originally built in the mid-1900s and used as a train depot for textile goods and machinery, will be transformed into office, light industrial and retail space by next summer.
On Monday, Oobe, a Greenville-based corporate uniforms provider, announced it will move its company headquarters into the development. The company's co-founder, Tom Merritt, said the space was attractive because the company has its roots in the textile industry.
"Oobe has been a long-time resident of the West End, and we support many business partners here, such as The (Greenville) Drive," Merritt said.
In addition to Oobe, planners shared how the space will eventually call a restaurant home, which will offer rooftop dining with views of downtown and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Once complete, the development will create a pedestrian-friendly corridor from Academy Street to Fluor Field.
