Good Evening Everyone,

Now for a major change of pace from Augusta, we travel approx. 110 miles to the north to Greenville, SC; the largest city in the Upstate of South Carolina. My version of the real city is a metro area of approx. 1.4 million people, with a very developed CBD, much like Atlanta or Charlotte (esp since I really like the buildings in both cities). This region has 3 airports, 2 regional, and 1 large international airport. There are numerous high-rises in Greenville and some scattered through the metro. Greenville boasts a large public transit network consisting of buses, metro/light rail, and commuter rail. Hope you enjoy! To see what the RL Greenville looks like, please check it out on Wikipedia, or actually go there, it is an AWESOME city :)!

The first picture is of downtown Greenville; on this tile there are 3 major business districts: downtown, midtown, and Pelham Crossing. Downtown is the original, and oldest core of the city with a regional transit center, city hall, stock exchange, aquarium, and numerous offices and residences.

The second picture is of Fashion Corner, which is on the western edge of Midtown; there you will find Cartier, Versace, Louis Vitton, Christian Dior, Saks 5th Avenue and more. It is one of the poshest shopping districts in the metro.

Really does remind me of Hotlanta, with the spread-out, almost linear rows of commercial towers. And, of course, the particular buildings... :)

iamihop: Thanks! I appreciate the feedback! I was kind of going for an ATL look, I've been there several times and I really like the architecture of the skyscrapers, esp Promenade 2, the BoA building, and the Georgia-Pacific Building, awesome buildings there.
