New entertainment complex near Fluor Field

featured image

The newest entertainment complex in downtown Greenville is set to open this week. We first talked about the complex in February 2021 when Greenville city leaders unanimously passed an ordinance creating a project. (See story above) The goal was to create a pedestrian-friendly environment around the ballpark and a way to keep visitors to the West End area on and after game day. This area is modeled after Jersey Street in Boston’s Fenway Park. The video below shows renderings announced in 2021. “It’s kind of the inspiration for Fenway Park and what they’ve accomplished on Jersey Street,” Greenville Drive general manager Eric Yarinko says in his 2021. It’s a ballpark and really that’s what we’re trying to achieve here. District 356 extends many of Fluor Field’s special events and community celebrations. “We see this as more than just a Greenville Drive or baseball proposition,” Greenville spokeswoman Beth Brotherton said when the project was announced. “We think of this as a space for festivals and events. A place where people can come together and have picnics and meals, concerts and other musical opportunities.” What is it? District 356 refers to shoeless Joe Jackson’s lifetime batting average in the major leagues. The district also serves as a pathway between adjacent apartment projects known as .408. That in itself is a tribute to Jackson’s batting averages, especially his 1911 season. A grand opening and ribbon cutting are scheduled for Wednesday, in conjunction with the drive’s annual Green His Day celebration to mark the founding of the city of Greenville.
