Greenville, SC is No. 3 Small City in the US

Greenville, SC is No. 3 Small City in the US

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 27, 2018

Abberly Market Point, Greenville, SCThe readers of Conde Nast’s Traveler magazine, one of the most highly-regarded and awarded travel magazines in the country, have chosen Greenville as the No. 3 Small City in the country.

The magazine, which has won 25 National Magazine Awards and has a circulation of around 800,000, received hundreds of thousands of votes for their annual Big City and Small City categories, and Greenville came in behind only Aspen, Colo. at No. 2 and another South Carolina city, Charleston, at No. 1. This is Greenville’s first appearance on the Reader’s Choice list.

Greenville’s entry reads as follows:

“Want to get in on a secret? Plan a trip to Greenville now and you might see it just on the cusp of stardom. The up-and-coming food lover’s town is getting its own outpost of Sean Brock’s Husk and its first food hall in late-2017, and its farm-to-table scene is rising to the ranks of Asheville (try Jianna for Italian and Vault & Vator, the city’s first speakeasy, after). Walk off your food coma across the 32-acre Falls Park that runs through the middle of town before going back for seconds.”

Greenville, SC: A Great Downtown

Greenville, SC: A Great Downtown

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Abberly Market Point, Greenville, SCYou’ll be forgiven if you feel the need to use GPS to make sure you’re actually walking through Downtown Greenville, S.C. and not some European city. The tree-lined Main Street, sidewalk cafes and waterfalls have a rather foreign feel when it comes to what you might expect in America’s Bible Belt. But we promise that’s Greenville, an unexpected treat of a small town in the Southeast. It’s Downtown Greenville’s unique appeal and projected growth that puts it on the list of the Top 10 Downtowns.

City leaders have been focused on not just renewing Greenville’s downtown, but making it a destination that appeals to the best and brightest, and that’s exactly what Greenville does. More than 20,000 workers populate the downtown area during the day, while area residents and tourists trickle in when the sun goes down to shop, eat and be entertained. Most of the 120 independent restaurants contained in the 10 blocks that make up downtown are locally owned and one-of-a-kind.

Greenville’s arts scene reflects the city’s growing diversity, with venues that draw nationally acclaimed performers, museums housing works by classical masters like Botticelli and Andrew Wyeth and small galleries and studios where budding artists hone their craft. Located in the heart of Downtown Greenville, The Peace Center provides a performance setting that’s as acoustically pleasing as it is architecturally appealing. You’ll find comedy acts, dramatic plays, light-hearted musicals and rock concerts at Centre Stage. Located throughout downtown is a collection of sculptures, fountains and murals creating an outdoor gallery of art.

While downtown provides residents with a modern, urban environment there are plenty of ways to enjoy Mother Nature, starting with Greenville’s most photogenic spot, Falls Park on the Reedy. An oasis in the downtown area, Falls Park features the Liberty Bridge which offers unsurpassed views of the waterfalls. Running along the Reedy River is a 21-mile, multi-use trail system called the Greenville Health System Swamp Rabbit Trail. This paved pathway links downtown to surrounding communities, schools and parks. And one more venue that might leave you wondering if you’re in the right place is Fluor Field, a mini replica of Boston’s Fenway Park and home to the Greenville Drive, a Class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

The Lowcountry can credit its crown jewel, the city of Charleston, for making the entire region one of the most desired places to live on the East Coast. In 2016, the city was not only named Travel + Leisure’s “No.1 City in the U.S. and Canada” for the fourth consecutive year, but it was also selected as the “No. 1 City in the World.” With this ranking, Charleston, SC, became the first domestic city to earn the title “World’s Best City.”

The Area Is Steeped in History

Are you a history buff? If so, you will love living in the Lowcountry. This region played a vital role throughout the course of American history. At the center, you'll find Charleston, a colonial seaport founded in 1670 that became one of the wealthiest hubs during the 19th-century.

The People Are Friendly

Even with the rapid growth, it has held onto its genial, Southern charm. Whether you are familiar with the area or a complete newcomer, you’ll be at ease amongst Lowcountry residents who will greet you with our world renowned hospitality.

The Scenery Is Spectacular

While a bustling historic city center and friendly folks are appealing reasons to pack up and head to the Lowcountry, it’s distinctive flora and fauna only found here that makes people never want to leave. With majestic live oak trees covered in Spanish moss, quiet marshes, pristine beaches, and beautifully preserved island communities, the Lowcountry is truly one of the most idyllic places on the East Coast to call home.

The Food Is Irresistible

Typically defined as a geographical and cultural region along the South Carolina coast, the Lowcountry is an area that was influenced by African, French, English and Caribbean cultures. One of the best ways to experience our past is through present-day cuisine. Here you’ll find traditional dishes prepared unlike anywhere else. Add award-winning restaurants, talented chefs, and plenty of fresh ingredients straight from the ocean, inlet, and farm, and you’ll quickly understand why the Lowcountry has become a top foodie destination.

The Lowcountry is a coveted destination on the East Coast. Filled with history and culture, food and fun, this beautiful part of the world offers so many things to see and do. For more information apartments in Greenville, SC contact Abberly Market Point.


Greenville, SC: Fourth Fastest-Growing City in US

Greenville, SC: Fourth Fastest-Growing City in US

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 06, 2018
Abberly Market Point, Greenville, SCA recent report by the U.S. Census Bureau probably won't shock many who've watched the fast-paced development and influx of jobs in Greenville within the past decade.

The city of Greenville is the fourth-fastest-growing city in the nation — growing by 5.8% as of last July from the year before, to 67,453.

The city's share of population is but a fraction of the nearly 500,000 people estimated to live in Greenville County, but the rate of growth over the years shows a pattern of re-urbanization.

Just less than a decade ago, the city was trying to attract people but had been unsuccessful in growing its population since suburban flight began in the 1960s.

It was just frustrating that people weren’t choosing to live in the city. This reflects that more people are choosing to live in the city than we’ve seen in many decades. We’ve been steadily reversing 40 years of declining city population.

The city has been investing steadily in infrastructure, such as a new city park planned west of downtown, and has seen surpluses in tax revenues that will be set aside to accommodate further growth in population.

The city's revitalization downtown has paid dividends in attracting people and development, whether it's renovation of homes, new homes slated, or the proliferation of luxury apartment growth.

In particular, pay attention to job-growth numbers in the area.

For anyone who looks at the statistics on job growth in the Upstate, you walk away from that analysis with a positive perspective. City officials are clearly working on the concept of re-urbanization. Greenville’s very well positioned for continued to growth.

Ten of the 15 fastest-growing cities, with populations of 50,000 or more, were pinned across the South last year.

Gov. Henry McMaster is not surprised by Greenville's ranking.

Meanwhile, a new analysis of the entire Upstate predicts that the region will welcome more than 300,000 new residents, reaching a total population of almost 1.75 million people by 2040, an increase of 64 percent since 1990 and bypassing growth forecast rates for the Charleston and Columbia areas.
