Gas station at Hampton Pinckney

The Spinx company has requested a zoning change for the corner of Buncombe and Butler streets, just off the central downtown Greenville area. Many will remember the site as the former Gene's Restaurant and is the entrance to town at the Heritage Green section that houses the main library and Upstate History Museum. Spinx intends to build a historic style structure with pumps in the back for low visibility, based on Parker's Urban Gourmet Market in Savannah, GA. Greenville City Council passed the initial proposal in a divided vote but you can expect resistance from the nearby Hampton Pinckney residential neighborhood.
