Uptown Greenville could soon be getting an upgrade.

Raleigh-based, private developer, Community-Smith, unveiled plans this week to turn six downtown Greenville properties into office and retail space.

Four of the properties are on 5th Street, one is on Cotanche Street and another is on Dickinson Avenue.

The redevelopment will likely include up to 4 million dollars in private investment and is expected to qualify for local, state and federal funds.

Greenville Mayor Allen Thomas says the idea behind the project is to make the city a more attractive place for people to live, visit, work and play.

"Not only does it change the use from a very raw use, to something with great utility, it's going to mark a change for an area where more people from different walks of life, from young professionals, business people, and families are going to find this is going to be a wonderful to come down and this is that change moment we've been waiting for," said Allen Thomas, Greenville Mayor.

This proposal comes a little more than a month after another private firm revealed their plans for a multi-million dollar student apartment complex and new parking deck.
