Florida-based developer Dean Warhaft loves solving complicated problems. The latest item on his to-do list? Reclaiming 238 acres around Greenville's old Union Bleachery mill from blight that has gripped it since 2003, when the mill burned down in a major fire.
Bolstered by county tax incentives and federal cleanup efforts, Warhaft and his partners in Cone Mills Acquisition Group LLC are poised to break ground this year on the largest redevelopment site in Greenville County.
Where some might look at the sprawling site and see ruin, Warhaft sees opportunity.
The Union Bleachery mill, located near West Blue Ridge Drive and Old Buncombe Road, was founded in 1902. It closed after a fire in 2003, then caught fire again in 2017.
The Environmental Protection Agency added the mill to the National Priorities List of its Superfund program in 2011, marking it one of the most potentially hazardous contamination sites in the country because of the site's contaminated surface water, groundwater and sediment from previous operations.
The mill is located near the Sans Souci area northwest of downtown Greenville.
County Council Chairman Willis Meadows, whose district includes the site, has said that the mill property's redevelopment could "transform that area of the county."
"That's part of what makes sites like this so interesting and special," Warhaft said. "If you can take something that is truly a burden on everybody and turn it into something positive — and at the same time, the way that you're doing it is not in a way that harms others — then I think that you've done something really special and great."
Because it's so large, the site will be developed in stages. At ultimate buildout, the project is expected to cost $1.9 to $3.4 billion, he said.
According to plans submitted to county officials in 2021, the project will feature a mix of business, residential, restaurant and retail.
It also is expected to include up to 10 miles of trails, including a new spur of the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail that could eventually extend to Paris Mountain and a pedestrian bridge to go over Blue Ridge Drive, which would create a safer connection to the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
Rezoning approved by the County Council in April 2021 will allow up to 20 million square feet of development on the property during the next 15 years.
And with the start of the new year, the developers are a few steps closer to making their plans a reality.
Greenville County Council recently approved tax incentives for the redevelopment, including a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes deal — a temporary, partial reduction of future real and personal property taxes based on the developer's commitment to the project — as well as a special source credit and a joint county industrial and business park designation involving Anderson and Greenville counties.
That joint county agreement is scheduled for final reading in February.
And with the first portion of the site removed from the EPA's National Priorities List in 2021, the developers have launched cleanup efforts in coordination with the EPA and state health department, Warhaft said. The developers anticipate the EPA will give indication about the remainder of the site in February, he said.
The next step is to close on the land, Warhaft said, which he anticipates will happen in the next few weeks. The developers will then apply for county permits, which will likely take until the middle of May or June to get approved, he said.
Warhaft's team also plans to set up shop at the SCBIO annual conference in February in Charleston. They're hoping to attract future white-collar jobs to the mill redevelopment, perhaps a life sciences office headquarters, he said.
"We can now offer something to corporations that maybe wasn't in the quiver of the Greenville Area Development Corporation before," he said. "Where the GADC is mainly focused on manufacturing, this gives them something to offer up where it's not necessarily manufacturing-based."
While the live-work-play project could take upwards of 20 years to complete, Warhaft believes the mill is an investment worth making at the right time in Greenville County.
"I think we're all witnessing a really special time in the Upstate," he said.

Question: What is the status of the new build going on next to the Publix at University Square? They demolished and cleaned it up last spring and there has been little to no work done to the site since then. All of the people in the area are just wondering what the reason is for the major delay.
Answer: Greenville-based Shaw Resources is redeveloping its Publix-anchored retail plaza near Furman University.
As part of that redevelopment, tenants were relocated and a portion of the shopping center was demolished, said Ron Shaw, vice president of Shaw Resources.
The area that was demolished will be where a brand-new, larger Publix store will locate. If you're facing the center, you'll see the cleared area on the right.
The new store, Shaw said, will be about 48,387 square-feet — 12,000-square-feet larger than the existing Publix which serves the Cherrydale, Furman and Travelers Rest areas.
The process of building the new store was delayed due to the timing of getting the insulation panels for the roof, Shaw said. Plans now are to start work toward the end of this month, he said.
The new store will be turned over to Publix in November. The supermarket may wait to open in the new space the first of the year, Shaw said.
They have the option of waiting because of all the holidays from November through the end of the year, he said.
There will be little down time when Publix does relocate. The store will close for one day and re-open the next, Shaw said.

Truliant Federal Credit Union has officially begun its South Carolina market expansion.
Commemorating the announcement with a ribbon cutting at the Truliant Upstate regional office located in downtown Greenville on Oct. 25, the expansion includes the opening of a second freestanding branch at Cherrydale Point, set to open within the next few weeks, and two additional branches to follow in 2023.
The branch office located at 6 State Park Road in Cherrydale will open in November, with construction recently finished. The fully staffed location includes three bilingual Spanish-speaking representatives and will be led by Jason Swink, the Upstate market director who has been working for the credit union’s branch operations since 2020.
Truliant expects the South Carolina expansion to create more than 60 jobs over the next several years to staff the branches and provide ancillary and support services, among other roles.
A second location is set to open in Easley in early 2023, along with a third in Greer. The combined locations represent more than 28,000 square feet.
In 2021, Truliant purchased and renovated the three-story, 19,000-square-foot facility located at 110 W. North Street. Truliant’s operations in the Upstate will be managed from this location. The credit union, chartered in 1952, has an existing branch on Pelham Road, which opened in 2016 and which had replaced a long-standing location existing on Airport Road.
“Truliant has a long history in Greenville,” said Todd Hall, Truliant’s president and CEO.
Truliant traced its history and past business relationships with Greenville almost three decades to its partnership with JPS textile Group, with which Truliant partnered in 1994.
At the opening of its regional office, the Truliant Foundation donated $10,000 to the Greenville Chamber Foundation to support the chamber’s LaunchGVL program, a partnership between the chamber and Greenville County schools connecting high school students with work opportunities.
“We know that to be successful, Truliant needs the support of the Upstate South Carolina community. So we intend to continue cultivating it with our partners,” Hall said.
Within the last three years, Truliant offices located in North Carolina and Virgina added several services for mortgages, business services, insurance services, financial advisors, indirect lending and digital services. Truliant will continue to offer these services in the Upstate.
The new Upstate locations will form the fourth regional concentration of Truliant branches, with other regions located in the Charlotte-Metro area, Piedmont Triad area in North Carolina, and southwestern Virginia.
“Over the next several years, the Upstate will represent a significant percentage of our overall expansion. Our contiguous strategy south along the I-85 corridor is the next logical step for Truliant. We see a great opportunity in the Upstate market. This area aligns perfectly with our growth strategy,” Hall said.

Question: The Starbucks on North Pleasantburg says it’s remodeling, but the corporate office said it was permanently closed. Can you investigate?
Answer: Even Google maps listed the location at 3230 N. Pleasantburg as permanently closed, but I'm happy to report, the sign on the door isn't lying.
Starbucks, in my personal experience, is one of the tougher corporations to crack when it comes to getting information about new or changing stores. The coffee chain remained tight-lipped about its new Laurens Road location for months ahead of the opening.
I reached out to Starbucks Wednesday morning for an answer.
While waiting for a response, I visited the store to take photos, saw the note on the door for myself and that was where I found the answer.
The store is, in fact, temporarily closed for remodeling, according to Jon Smith, the superintendent on the project. Smith is a superintendent for R.A. Heath Construction Inc., out of Buford, Georgia. He was at the site Wednesday when I visited.
Smith told me his company has been working on a remodel of the store and hopes it will reopen in July, though he did not want to give a specific date.
A representative of Starbucks responded by email Wednesday night and confirmed what Smith told me: The store is expected to reopen in early July.
The representative said the store will get a refreshed interior and begin serving nitro cold brew when it reopens.
Starbucks currently has 12 other stores with Greenville addresses, including the recently opened store on Laurens Road.
According to the sign on the door at the Cherrydale location, the baristas who normally work at that store are temporarily working at other Starbucks locations in the area until Cherrydale reopens.
