New Apartments Planned for Main Street Greenville
98 East McBee is the proposed name for a new apartment complex which will be located at East McBee Avenue and South Spring Street. That's the empty lot between Carolina Ale House and The Bookend Condos. The development was once slated to become a luxury hotel is hoping to cash in on the high rental demand in the downtown market. Prices are going to be comparable to the 100 East Apartment complex that is nearing completion. The prices for 100 East are from $1025 for a studio up to $1700 for two bedroom two bath. 100 East has 48 units all pre-leased before construction is finished. The new 98 East McBee will have units from 784 to 1548 sq ft. Several more apartment complexes are planned for downtown which will bring more residents to the area full time instead of just during working hours. All of this is good news as residents tend to take ownership of an area and take better care of the surroundings.
