The upstairs of the former Bank of Greer is being developed into a luxury apartment and the adjacent building will house an insurance agency.

Two buildings are being developed on the 100 block of Trade Street that will fill in where vacancies have existed for years.

The former Bank of Greer at 116 Trade Street is undergoing renovations that will feature an apartment upstairs and an insurance agency in the adjacent building.

Randy Jones, owner of Mutt's, is renovating the upstairs of the bank building as a luxury apartment. An adjacent building, which also used to be part of the bank, is being developed into an insurance office for Jones and his wife, Angela. That agency is now at the Greer Business Center developed by Russ Braasch.

Joada Hiatt and Don Owens, noted Greer historians, confirmed the buildings past tenants. “The office on the side was used for the bookkeeping part of the bank. There was a wall between the buildings that was torn down. In the back of the building was a drive-thru for the bank,” Owens said.

“Randy has done a lot of work on that building and (the apartment) will look beautiful,” Hiatt said.

Construction has just begun on the inside and no completion date has been set.

“We’re going to take our time and keep all the historical integrity in the buildings,” Jones said.
