A Testiment to Planning, Perserverance, and Panache
What's old is new... or renewed.
This dynamic look at Greenville's best and best potential is written by noted South Carolina writer Tom Poland, who has authored seven books about the culture, history, and natural beauty of the state and the region.

Much more than a photo-journal celebrating the area's physical beauty and its vibrant cityscape, it launches a discussion into the community's commitment to becoming one of the world's most attractive business destinations and the best place to live, period.

Introduction by Mayor Knox White

Knox White’s love of his native city is the steadfast star in the visionary future into which he has lead the community. It is that vision that he expresses in his introduction to this story about the progress made and challenges remaining in securing Greenville’s legacy.

Born and raised in Greenville, Mayor White has served as the city’s mayor since 1995, during which time the community’s focus on a sustainable future has matured from promise to prosperous reality. The work that he has achieved is the foundation from which Greenville looks to the future.

In addition to the informative and tone setting introduction to GReenville Grand Designs, much of the direction and insight that has gone into the development of this work is being drawn from conversations with the Mayor.



Releasing during the winter of 2016

A copy of the book will be distributed to each member of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce as well as being available for the city's many economic development initiatives. It will be an exciting community event of lasting significance.

Poland's account will celebrate the heroic individuals, corporations and institutions whose combined insight and actions are shaping the community's ongoing renaissance.


This lavishly illustrated, full-color publication will be hard-bound, 9 x 12 inches. Additionally, between now and the summer of 2015, we will be researching and chronicling the stories of participating companies and institutions in a manner that will tell their histories, celebrate their heroes and communicate a vision of their future in Greenville.
