Details for a 100-plus room city hotel, related retail properties and approximately a 300-vehicle parking garage, will be presented at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

City Administrator Ed Driggers will present the economic development project, code-named “Kaboom”, for a first reading on council’s agenda. Council meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.

The city will be a fiscal partner in the project. Taxpayer costs for its part of the development and future maintenance have not been announced.

Economic and business leaders have been discussing bringing a hotel to Greer for years and recently were studying ways to facilitate additional parking with a garage.

Driggers will tell council the city intends to assist with the development by acquiring and disposing of real property to be used on the development site, making infrastructure improvements, provide grant funding, and design and construction of the parking garage the city will operate and maintain.

The undisclosed developer, according to city documents, owns, or intends to purchase, real property in the city to develop the hotel and design and construct other adjacent general commercial/retail facilities. Additionally, the developer will lease no less than 90 reserved parking spaces in the city’s soon-to-be-developed parking garage.
