GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A major development proposed in downtown Greenville is moving forward.

On Thursday, city council members gave the green light for the developer to continue drawing up plans.

The project calls for 375 apartments and thousands of square feet for stores and restaurants. Several more votes are needed before construction can begin on the 12-acre lot at the corner of Church Street and University Ridge.

However, not everyone who lives nearby is on board.

"The plan is nice, but then again on the same token, it misses the beat," said Terry Mitchell, who lives near the planned development.

Mitchell said there needs to be widening of certain streets, which are setbacks.

"And literally a five-story parking deck is going to be put at my front door," Mitchell said.

The Beach Company, a Charleston-based firm, has proposed the development. If approved, it would be the company's first project in the Upstate.
