A property in Greenville’s West End could receive new zoning to make it compliant with the Central Business District’s zoning and potentially recruit business, according to city documents.

“The zoning change will make the property more attractive to business wanting to locate, relocate or invest in Greenville,” Tapp wrote in her application. “The property will be improved if sold and alleviate a vacant building, which not only generates taxes, but is more attractive to the district and improves surrounding land values.”
The property runs along Markley, Vardry, Pendleton and Rhett streets in the West End. The property at 1122 S. Main St. is currently vacant and any plans to alter the building would be reviewed by the city’s Design Review Board.
Tapp requests the city’s Planning Commission to rezone from the C-3 zoning designation to a C-4, which is the zoning for the Central Business District. Occasionem Cognosce LLC is listed as the owner.
If approved at the July 12 meeting, future developments’ designs must be approved by the Design Review Board and there’s no specified parking requirement, although applicants are required to explain how they will handle parking, said Jean Pool, the city’s planning and development manager.
The change in zoning is consistent with the recommendations of the 2009 Comprehensive Plan, according to the applicant in city documents.
