“This land has several qualities that make the property unique and extremely desirable,” said Frank Hammond of Colliers | South Carolina. “It has a gorgeous, natural setting between two major corridors, Laurens Road and I-385, with close proximity to Downtown Greenville, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail will soon bisect the property.”
The property originally consisted of ±17 acres with frontage on Laurens Road and was subdivided to welcome businesses including Home Team BBQ, Flying Rabbit Adventures and Double Stamp Brewery. The remaining ±12 acres of land features over ±1,500 feet of fee simple former rail line, the same abandoned roadbed in which the Swamp Rabbit Trail began as a 9-mile greenway.
Plans for the extension of the Swamp Rabbit Trail include the continuation of aligning a parallel sequence to the inactive rail bed stretching from Downtown Greenville to Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR). Bridges have been constructed as a part of this extension with the newest delivery crossing Laurens Road and a future bridge crossing Haywood Road to be completed Q1 2023. The coordination of the Swamp Rabbit construction allowed Colliers an opportunity to add value for the correct buyer.
The Swamp Rabbit Trail spans 22 miles, beginning at Lake Conestee Nature Preserve and ending just north of Travelers Rest city limits. The trail sees walkers and cyclists of all ages with friendly features like rest areas and air-pump stations for its patrons. Swamp Rabbit traverses through popular public parks like the newly delivered Unity Park and Falls Park on the Reedy, and it streams booming businesses along its line including breweries, eateries and retail shops.
