Mixed-use development announced

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. — A Greenville-based developer has purchased 18 acres of mixed-use land just north of Travelers Rest that will be developed as The Village at Mountain Park.

Located near the intersection of Highway 25 and Highway 11 adjacent to The Cliffs at Mountain Park, the complex will include a mix of residential, commercial, retail, medical and office space, according to architect renderings.

Developer plans include an independent living and assisted living facility, a bed and breakfast with associated hillside bungalows, and a Market Square with mixed-use commercial and retail facilities. Also as part of the deal, the new ownership group is working with The Cliffs to build 10 waterfront patio homes with panoramic golf course views.

“The Village at Mountain Park will be a tremendous asset not only to the members of The Cliffs communities, but the greater northern Greenville County suburbs, who can enjoy the many new businesses it will bring to the area. It will be a beautiful space for living, gathering and socializing,” said Kent Smith, president of Cliffs Land Partners.

The new development will complement the complex’s existing businesses including The Dental Retreat, Medical Group of the Carolinas - Family Medicine, Davis Audiology, Gabriel Builders, The Cliffs Information Center and the new Cliffs at Mountain Park Wellness Center (opening January 2017).

The Village at Mountain Park will be open to the public during daylight hours and closed to non-residents during evenings and overnight.

Fairview Builders, a Travelers Rest-based contracting group, has been chosen as the construction partner.

The property, for the last four years, was owned by a private individual. Ground breaking is anticipated after the first of the year.
