The Greenville Chamber announced today their current facility, 24 Cleveland Street, has been purchased by Bannister, Wyatt and Stalvey, LLC, Pintail Capital Partners and Fox Commercial Properties. After 46 years in this building, the Chamber will relocate its headquarters this fall to Riverplace, 550 S. Main Street, Downtown Greenville.

“After nearly five decades in our Cleveland Street facility, we are thrilled to integrate the Chamber’s headquarters into Greenville’s core business district as we keep our vision future-focused,” said Carlos Phillips, Greenville Chamber President & CEO. “This move positions the Chamber for success in many areas, primarily ensuring we are able to focus our resources on programs and initiatives that directly impact our Investors.”

In January 2018, the Chamber announced its selection of Colliers International as broker for the sale of the building as well as tenant representation for the new location. The disposition and selection process were led by the Chamber’s Facilities Committee, comprised by 10 Upstate business and community leaders, chaired by Rich Hagins, Chamber board chair-elect.

The Facilities Committee first convened in May 2017 and collaborated with numerous experts including architects, contractors, space planners and bankers to thoroughly vet all real estate options.

The committee determined five key objectives which directed the process:

  1. Ensure Chamber Investor resources are utilized for mission-centric initiatives
  2. Strengthen the Chamber’s financial position
  3. Reinforce the Chamber brand and reflect the future of Greenville’s business community
  4. Provide a work environment for Chamber staff that aligns with “best place to work” goal
  5. Become part of Greenville’s core business district

“As we close this chapter on Cleveland Street, the facilities committee and entire Chamber team are confident the new location will advance our mission and vision, while providing a new, cutting-edge Chamber experience for the business community,” said Phillip Kilgore, Chamber board chair. “We look forward to capitalizing on this opportunity to build a space that keeps our employees and investors engaged, valued and connected.”

The move into the 9200 sq ft office space on the 5th floor of Riverplace, owned by Hughes Development Corporation, will take place upon completion of an extensive renovation led by Greenville-based design firm DP3 and general contractor Mitchell Contract Interiors.

The new, modern space, anticipated to be completed and move-in ready this fall, will exemplify the Chamber’s brand and core values through graphics and other design elements. Benefits for investors include walkability to and from downtown Greenville’s bustling business, cultural and social activities, as well as access to three conveniently located meeting rooms within the new space.
