The Greenville Chamber held a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the official opening of the new headquarters located at 550 S. Main Street in the downtown Greenville.
More than 75 community leaders attended the celebration which included remarks from Carlos Phillips, Greenville Chamber President/CEO; Butch Kirven, Greenville County Council Chairman; Lillian Brock Flemming, Greenville Mayor Pro-Tem; and Rich Hagins, Greenville Chamber Board Chair.
The Greenville Chamber officially moved into the Riverplace building, owned by Hughes Development Corporation, in November of 2019, following a more than two-year process to sell the Cleveland Street building and locate a new facility. The 9200 sq ft office space underwent extensive renovations led by Greenville-based design firm DP3 and general contractor Mitchell Contract Interiors.
The new, modern office exemplifies the Chamber’s brand and core values through graphics, design elements and spaces created to foster a collaborative and creative environment. 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.
“Many people played an important role in making this move possible and we have enjoyed seeing the way the community has rallied around the move and embraced the new space,” said Carlos Phillips. “We are confident that the location in the core business district and the degree of care with which every decision was made will position the Greenville Chamber for success for years to come.”
Colliers International served as broker for the sale of the old building and selection of the new location. The disposition and selection process were led by the Chamber’s Facilities Committee, comprised by 10 Upstate business and community leaders and chaired by Rich Hagins.
The Greenville Chamber also held office tours on Thursday and Friday to welcome the community into the new space.
