The Camperdown Development, in the heart of downtown Greenville, is the brainchild of Brody and David Glenn, owners of Centennial American Properties. With deep roots in the community, the Glenns selected the Camperdown name to honor the heritage of the site, which is near the original Camperdown textile mill on the Reedy River, where relatives of the Glenns once worked. When completed, it will be the largest singular investment in the downtown area in history and will include a multitude of private and public uses including a hotel, apartments, office buildings, retail facilities, restaurants, public plazas, and an underground parking garage.
The Camperdown Development will greatly enhance the heart of downtown Greenville where the Greenville News previously had their manufacturing and administrative offices. It will provide local housing and support facilities in an urban environment, serving as a great alternative to the urban sprawl that continues to encroach on the scenic lakes and mountains in the upstate of South Carolina.
Multiple teams in multiple states, who are working together to bring the Glenns’ vision to reality, are providing the architectural and engineering design for the development. Wakefield Beasley & Associates out of Alpharetta, GA are the prime architects for the project and they have selected Fuller Group to be the prime structural engineering company for the site.
Projects of this type require extraordinary efforts in coordinating with multiple design firms, the owner, and contractors. They also require the design teams to be flexible and nimble – able to staff up quickly when the needs arise and provide quality services at a rapid pace. Through Fuller’s experience in commercial building services in 48 states, our company is prepared to meet those challenges.
