Work has begun on the corner of Howard and College for the Northside’s Mixed Income Mixed Use project. Grading and site work has started on the Mixed Use side of the street which included excavation of rock through blasting and removal of dirt that will be eventually moved across the street on the old parking lot of Spartan Mill to prepare for a 90 unit mixed income apartment development scheduled to start 2nd quarter of 2019.
The first Phase of the development consists of a $14M Mixed Use project consisting of two buildings at the east corner of Howard Street: the main building and a clinic for VCOM. The main building will have office space on the first floor that will include offices for Access Health, NDG, and other organizations, with two floors of apartments above, as well as a portion dedicated to Wofford College's Community Sustainability program. Wofford's space will have classroom and community engagement space for students and community partners with housing above. The Mixed Use development will be complete early 2020.
