ANDERSON, SC (WSPA) – Anderson County is looking for tenants to fill three new buildings that will make up a project called “County Square.”
Anderson County Administrator Rusty Burns tells 7News the current plans will bring in a private developer who will invest more than $30 million dollars into the project.
It will include three buildings, with one as the focal point standing six stories tall with usable rooftop space.
Burns said there will be county offices, commercial businesses and about 100 condos and apartments in the middle of downtown.
“The idea was to put something here that would be probably be the most significant development in Downtown Anderson and not something that opens at 8am and closes at 5pm, but a 24/7 building with people working here, living here and going here and there,” Burns said.
Construction is set to begin in January with a one year timeline for completion, but the county hopes to have all the spaces in the buildings filled before they even break ground.
