Following Greenville’s Stone Avenue Master Plan, McMillan Pazdan Smith designed a new mixed-use development featuring 225 efficiency, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The building also includes 21,000 SF of retail space that graces the corner of Stone Avenue and Main Street.
Simulated natural materials were incorporated into the design including brick, HardiePlank©, and HardieShingle©, similar to those found on many of the surrounding single-family homes. The three-bedroom apartments facing Rowley Street take on the appearance of single-family residences, helping ease the transition from commercial to residential. On the Main Street side, the units have a more modern design aesthetic. A long four-story building runs the length of North Main, with large windows and entryways with street side access.
The 225 apartments share a community pool, parking deck, amenity space such as a club house and fitness facilities, and each have a private balcony or outdoor space. Upscale interior finishes such as granite counter top, black or stainless appliances, and wood look flooring have been incorporated used.
It was important to take into consideration traffic, connectivity and density for the plan, as well as accommodating the Stone Master Plan and neighborhood resident’s expectations. The retail component wraps around the Stone at Main intersection, where most of the project’s density will be concentrated.
