The former Coca-Cola distribution center at 500 W Main Street is on its way to renewal after Spartanburg City Council unanimously approved a measure to rezone the property at a recent meeting.
Plans call for converting the facility into mixed use, with a blend of retail and office space, creating what developer Coastal Partners LLC hopes will be a pedestrian friendly environment with gathering spaces, outdoor dining space, and 20,000 sq. ft. of office space.
A later phase of the project will also include construction of a new multi-family residential building housing as many as 60 one-bedroom units to be located behind the existing building. The developer plans to preserve the Coca-Cola building’s historic facade while creating a new destination along the W Main Street gateway into Downtown Spartanburg. Work is expected to begin on the project later this Spring.
