About BridgeWay Station:
A conceptual site plan shows nine mixed-use complexes along both sides of a main street with retail space on the ground level and apartments or office space on upper floors. It also shows locations for two hotels and a movie theater.
The intention is that this mixed-use development will connect to the Swamp Rabbit Trail via a pedestrian bridge over the interstate. Also shown are landscaping, traffic circles, and a public park with an amphitheater at the proposed connection to the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
Hughes is working on various elements of the plan and won’t break ground until they come together.
“Our vision at this time is it will probably be 2020 before the first phase begins to open,” Hughes said.
Hughes described the proposed village as an Internet-connected, environmentally friendly place where people could live, work, and play without having to drive anywhere in a car.
“We will have music, events, festivals. It will be more than just a group of buildings,” state Hughes. “It will be the kind of place everyone wants to go.”
“Dream with me for just a minute. Think about getting on a bicycle from an apartment at BridgeWay Station, hopping on the trail over to East Butler and riding down to Mauldin’s City Center Village; play a game of pickleball or enjoy one of the great dining groups in the new food court.
“Think about enjoying a sporting event at Mauldin High School and after the game taking a stroll from the parking lot across the new bridge to BridgeWay; take in a late-night coffee or dessert.
“And then, how about participating in the new BridgeWay 5K from City Center Village to BridgeWay Station. It’s all part of the dynamic new Mauldin landscape.
“This new bridge and trail connection will be recognizable as a Mauldin icon for years to come.”
— Mayor Terry Merritt
