Riverside Village construction to continue in 2019
The past year has brought baseball and residents into Riverside Village in North Augusta, but construction is still going on in the “live, work, play” development.
The Crowne Plaza Hotel is scheduled to open Dec. 27, offering 180 guest rooms and thousands of square feet of meeting space; SRP Park is gearing up for its 2019 season, which opens at home on April 15 against the Greensboro Grasshoppers; and Ironwood Apartments had 82 residents moved in when it opened in October. So what else is coming to the development?
Named retail stores and eateries set to open in Riverside Village include barbecue restaurant Southbound Smokehouse, outfitter Rivers and Glen, taqueria Rio Cantina and boutique Swank.
Swank and Southbound Smokehouse will each be located at SRP Park, and Rivers and Glen will be in a building located between the Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Savannah River.
Crowne Plaza includes a restaurant, Salt + Marrow, and a rooftop bar, Jackson’s Bluff.
A new 2.5 acre park along the river is also slated to come in 2019. Riverfront Park is planned to include an amphitheater and access to the Greeneway.
Charlie Hall with W.R. Toole gave a presentation to North Augusta City Council on the park in August of this year, and guessed that a completion date would be around July 2019.
Other construction and business coming to Riverside Village include an office building, a second garage, single family homes and condominiums over retail space.
Original plans for Riverside Village included a senior living aspect, but Chris Schoen with Greenstone Properties said in June of this year that additional apartment living may be built instead of senior living.
