New Housing Development In Greenville

Greenville is getting ready to cut the ribbon on a unique housing opportunity.

Nathaniel Village on Greenville's Fifth Street opens Thursday. The city describes the apartments as affordable family housing made possible through a joint venture by the city's redevelopment commission and a private developer.

Officials say Nathaniel Village is part of the city's first significant housing development in Greenville's center city in more than two decades.

    A waste time and money for the city to invest in this.

    Another lame, idiotic socialistic program designed by brainless nanny staters. Can anyone say "enough"?

    Great, another spot that they will have to make a specialized unit just to patrol to keep thee crime down. Six months and that place will just be another neighborhood that good people will not want to live in.

    Before anyone says anything about "afforable" please answer how $ 400 - $ 600 "based on your income" fair? I do believe it is false advertising and poor decision on the City to support.

    Back in the early 60s I work construction in Washington DC. We constructed two high rise low income apartments with pool, landscape lighting, landscape bushes and trees, and beautiful grass. There were complaints from the residents "things" did not work, I was appointed to do a due diligence report. The place was a total wreck in less than a year. The grass was trampled to death, the pool was stagnant and filled with beer and wine bottles, the landscape lighting was broken, the landscape bushes and shrubbery were but dead, the apartment lobby was missing furniture. The carpets were filty and had burns, walls had holes, doors missing, lighting fixtures broken or missing, and they were mad at me bacause they had destoried their own home.

    Data Man, again you have made a good post. The only problem is that our closed door government will not allow the rules you are talking about. There should be rules, you trash the unit, you are out. You sell rugs out of the unit you are out, you have a gun in the unit you are out. Oh, and if you don't pay your rent on time, you are out.

    Just another money hole. WASTE!!! Give it 3 years and it will be run down and a crime infested sewer basin. Examine Data Man's comment...typical and the reason these ghettos will never get any better. Always drug dealers' fault or the government's fault...Must run in the socialist liberal thinking pot that I'm not responsible for my actions, something or somebody else is....Hmmm...where have I heard that before?????

    Well i think that most of you are right about lazy people taking advantage of the well fare system. Girls keep having babies and boys keep not showing up. What about people like me i work 7 days a week third shift i live in a place i can really afford so my children can go to a good school. So that they can play outside and play with children with respect but i can promise i would more than qualify for this new housing. I think grouping people into income categories is wrong. Group them be dignity respect the fight for quality of life. what happened to not throwing stones most people are a paycheck away from living in this community. Thank God for what you have and think about what you would do if you lost all option. I believe Greenville needs monitor theses developments better
