GREENWOOD -

The city of Greenwood has revealed the final design for its new downtown fieldhouse intended to anchor the redevelopment of the former Greenwood Middle School. The property's north gymnasium will be preserved and used as the new fieldhouse. The city bought the property in 2017.

Final construction documents will be finalized over the next two months, with public bidding happening late this year or early 2020. Construction is set to begin in 2020. 

“Our plans for the future of downtown create a thriving city core that is walkable and connected to trails, parks and dynamic public gathering spaces,” said Mayor Mark W. Myers. We’ll have diverse, authentic amenities, seamless integration of greenspace and opportunities for all ages to live, work and play in downtown Greenwood. The fieldhouse redevelopment is key to these efforts, and we’re extremely pleased with the final look and components.”

Plans include an elevated indoor track, two multi-purpose turf fields to be used for soccer, lacrosse and other sports, basketball/volleyball courts and several pickle ball courts. 

Other projects include 450 apartments and 130 townhomes, over 75,000 square feet of retail/office space, 9 acres of open space and 9 miles of new or rebuilt street. Click here for more information and progress updates.
