Construction on the Uptown Market Project began September 19, 2014. Crews with Satterfield Construction removed the old asphalt parking. New storm drainage and the underground water and sewer utilities that will serve the market restrooms were installed. The parking lot was paved and landscaping was installed.
Construction on the remainder of the project began in early April of 2015, with estimated project completion near the end of April 2016. The plans included the market pavilion structure, restroom facilities, interactive fountain, additional landscaping, lighting, elevated lawn and plaza.
This project was funded with the investment of local hospitality taxes in partnership with the V. Kann Rasmussen Foundation, the Self Regional Healthcare Foundation, the Self Family Foundation, the City of Greenwood, the Greenwood Commissioners of Public Works, and the Greenwood Metropolitan District.
