The Poe West development in the Village of West Greenville is almost full.
CBRE arranged leases for three of the last four spaces, totaling 10,761 square feet of the 60,000-square-foot mixed use development at Poe West, according to a news release.
CBRE’s Blaine Hart and Tommy Molin are spearheading leasing efforts at Poe West and represented the landlord and developer, The Furman Co., in finding space for 6AM City, a Greenville-based media company that leased 4,997 square feet in Poe West’s Streetside Building; Brains on Fire, a full-service advertising and marketing firm based in Greenville, which leased 3,633 square feet in the Streetside Building; and an undisclosed fitness concept leased that 2,131 square feet in Poe West’s Railside Building.
“Poe West continues to attract an incredible balance of rapidly growing creative office users, the right types and mix of retail concepts, and startups experiencing great early success,” Hart said in the news release. “The project has become a brand name, a true destination and a legitimate extension of the Village of West Greenville — all of which were the original intentions of the development team and the result of proper planning. We are excited to lease this last space and bring the development to full occupancy.”
Located at 556 Perry Avenue, approximately two miles from the center of downtown, The Furman Co. converted Poe Hardware and Supply Company’s mid-century building into a creative office and retail development.
“Walking through the soon-to-close old metal fabrication operation four years ago seems like just yesterday,” Steve Navarro, president and CEO of The Furman Co., said in the release. “I recall saying ‘such a large space in a boutique market. Let’s not mess it up by doing too much of one thing. Strive for balance … part retail, part service, and part creative office space, spacing visitors over 18 hours, so as not to overwhelm the neighborhood.’ Having two high-energy, super-cool users like 6AM City and Brains on Fire is the icing on the cake. So happy to see two high caliber firms with so much vision and presence recognize the value of Poe West and wanting to be a part of it.”
Poe West broke ground in February of 2019 and is comprised of the Streetside and Railside buildings with 150 available parking spaces. Greenville Technical College anchors the development with the Culinary and Hospitality Innovation Center. Poe West also houses office tenant 98 Ventures; restaurant tenants Six + Twenty Distillery, Carolina Bauernhaus Brewery & Winery, Unlocked Coffee Roasters and Eighty Twenty Cafe; and retail tenants The Junkyard and LaRue Fine Chocolate.
