The Greenville population continues to show steady and sustainable growth
The 2010s were a banner decade for population growth in South Carolina as a whole and Greenville specifically. Estimates between the most recent census in 2010 and 2017 numbers show that the population of the city increased by nearly 17 percent. While the pace of growth slowed in the last couple of years of the decade relative to the earlier period, the city continues to maintain a very healthy population growth rate around 2 percent per year that is expected to continue into 2020.
Developers are establishing new residential neighborhoods near commercial centers
Developers crave proximity to desirable and growing residential neighborhoods, and Greenville has them in spades. Many of these places are close enough to commercial centers to make them attractive to prospective residents who want to easily travel to their preferred business, or feature mixed-use developments sought after by millennials and Gen-Z residents. In-town neighborhoods such as downtown and the Village of West Greenville, and adjacent suburbs such as Five Forks continue to grow and attract a strong local clientele for nearby businesses.
The downtown core is thriving
Speaking of downtown Greenville, it’s remarkable how drastic the transformation has been in the area over the past 20 years. The urban core of the city has gone from an afterthought to a central hub, thanks largely to growth-friendly civic policies, an influx of commercial investment, and new residential developments.
