CREW Upstate has the opportunity to tour the much anticipated County Square Redevelopment. Shannon Herman with Greenville County will give us an overview detailing project inception and goals as well as a look into governmental needs for an administration facility. Laurie Gregory with DPR will give us a tour of the site, offering a look into the construction process as well as final product.
There will be a happy hour immediately following the tour at The Eighth State Brewing Company just up the street (400 Augusta St, Greenville, SC 29601)!
