SW+A Proposes Three Plans for Greenwood Farmer’s Market & Historic Railroad Center

Employees of Seamon Whiteside + Associates (SW+A) and its Urban Edge Studio branch are back in the office today after conducting a week long charrette process in Greenwood, SC.  Three plans were drawn up for a new farmer’s market and historical railroad center in the Uptown region of Greenwood.

Throughout the week, the designers took ideas, suggestions and votes from community members on how they envision their farmer’s market and railroad museum.  Over the next three months, SW+A be inputting the information gathered from focus group meetings into a final design for June.

Take a look at the three proposed plans:

The Green Scheme calls for 42 stalls in the farmer’s market, as well as a multipurpose pavilion, playground and three rail cars relocated from the current railroad historical center to the site.

The Red Scheme provides 32 stalls for the farmer’s market, plus room for additional stalls inside a multipurpose pavilion.  The plan makes room for a demonstration garden and seven rail cars.The last of the three plans, is the Yellow Scheme.  It houses 38 stalls for the farmer’s market, a plaza area, playground and six relocated rail cars.

Sullivan's Island Commercial District Plan


SeamonWhiteside + Associates with its urban design studio, Urban Edge Studio, architects LS3P, and traffic engineers Kimley Horn have been working with the town and citizens of Sullivan’s Island on a plan to formalize the commercial district along Middle Street. The effort is designed to reduce the impact of traffic and commercial activities on the residential areas of the Town and provide adequate, smart, parking layouts, traffic patterns, and zoning guidelines. A multi-day design charrette/ public workshop was held to help the design team further define the goals and requirements of the plan. The design team presented the draft Commercial District Plan at a meeting with Town staff, residents, and business owners on October 16, 2008. The Post and Courier article of 10/22/08 discusses the presentation of the plan to the public.

SW+A created the Urban Edge Studio this past summer to provide specialized urban design and public planning services to communities, campuses, and residential developments throughout the Southeast. For more information, visit our websites.
