Lismore Park, off S. Suber Road, will grow by 36 single-family homes. Grading is scheduled to begin this summer or early fall.

An 88-unit assisted living complex will be built on South Buncombe Road, across the street from Greer Memorial Hospital and Lismore Park will expand by another 36 homes.

Both projects’ representatives were addressed by city services at today’s Planning Advisory Commission.

John Easterling, President of Pulliam Investment Company in Spartanburg, said Village Green, a $15 million project scheduled to open September, 2014, will employ 40 full-time staff. The complex will be located at Buncombe Place, a planned office park that didn’t materialize.

“We have owned that property for the past six to seven years but the economy went bad,” Easterling told Greer Today.com. “We plan to break ground about Sept. 1.” All the utilities are in place on property that was graded and a street with decorative light poles remain in place.

“One year ago we made the decision we were going to build senior living there,” Easterling said. His company has developed 25 with the closest, Greenville Glen, in Greenville.

“This is a perfect place being across from the hospital,” Easterling said.

“It sounds like a very viable project and appears it will do well there,” said Glenn Pace, Greer Planning and Zoning Coordinator.

Easterling described assisted living as elderly, for different reasons, don’t live at home.  “It’s not a nursing home. They are patients who bedridden,” he said.

The Lismark Park addition will be 36 homes on South Suber Road. Lismark Park and Lismore Village are two subdivisions that are neighbors to the proposed expansion.

Construction is tentatively to begin by the end of summer or early fall, said Chuck Gray, a representative of the developers.

Preliminary pricing and square footage was not discussed.

Pace did throw one hiccup that got Gray’s attention. “The Transco (Transcontinental) Gas Line, it appears, runs in the middle of the property.” Pace’s graphic showed the line running under a sizeable number of houses. CPW officials said the line was further back than the slide showed and shouldn’t present problems. CPW said it would locate the line in relation to the property and proposed housing.

Transco is a high pressure natural gas line that travels 9,800 miles extending from the Gulf of Mexico to New York.  Piedmont Natural Gas is the Carolinas’ distributor.
