North Street favored site of new federal courthouse in Greenville

From the Greenville News:

The city of Greenville and lawyers from several downtown firms told federal officials Thursday that they prefer that the new federal courthouse be built across from the county courthouse on North Street.

Several people who spoke at a public hearing on the site selection for the new $137 million building voiced opposition to a proposed site on Falls Street opposite the Liberty Bridge, saying that area would be better developed with shops and restaurants to take advantage of downtown foot traffic.
