The dream of a downtown parking deck achieved a long-sought breakthrough Monday night when the Greenville City Council unanimously approved a plan to build a four-story car park at the corner of Cotanche and Fourth streets.

The city still must bid and award the project to a contractor, but advocates and elected leaders hailed Monday’s vote as a historic move that paved a clear path for Greenville to lure new development, retail and shoppers to downtown.

The 120-by-190-foot garage — to be housed in the frequently underused city-owned Moseley Lot — will provide 256 spaces, cost $3.8 million, take six months to construct and generate more than $175,000 in annual revenue for the city, Greenville Economic Development Officer Carl Rees said.

Will be interesting if really used...

plus the area is just one to give more crime for those who park in the deck. Underused lot before so why does Greenville Council think it will be used more? Just asking and can see the DR headlines now...Crime/assault in parking deck.. Gotta love it
