Good Evening Everyone!

After several days away from updating my CJ, I will introduce you to the city of Woodruff. A smallish city east of Greenville proper and just south of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport. The pop. is roughly 63000 with an average income of $45,000; making it a middle income area of the Greenville metro area; and is literally halfway between Greenville and Spartanburg along I-85.

This area is known primarily for extensive manufacturing and industrial parks, as well as a new development in the south-west of the city called "Woodruff New Town" which abuts the Greenville Beltway and the Woodruff Mall. This area is home to unique shops, boutiques, coffeeshops; as well as some mid-rise apartments and condos, as well as single family houses and the Woodruff Country Club.

Our first stop is the small, very dense CBD of Woodruff, which contains two prominent buildings, a large, luxury apartment and the PNC Tower; where PNC hosts its South-East Regional HQ.

The next three images are exclusive to Woodruff New Town (WNT), which was initially developed to imitate "traditional neighborhood developments" as well as a psuedo-planned city on a much smaller scale than such cities as Columbia, MD; The Woodlands, TX; and Celebration, FL.

The first image of WNT is its "downtown" which consists of a round-about, several shops, coffeeshops, restuarants, a train station, and some medium density middle and upperclass housing.

Just to the south of the business district are some single family houses in Woodruff. Even though these houses are in South Carolina, which is known for very affordable real estate, houses in WNT sell for an average of $300,000 vs approx. $120,000 in the rest of the state.

Immediately south of the Greenville Beltway is the Woodruff Mall, a medium-sized regional shopping mall hosting a JC Penney, Nordstrom, and Hechts.
