Development in Boiling Springs; Clemson touting Friday news; diversity summit is Oct. 20


Greenville-based LyonJay is developing a 62-acre site in Boiling Springs, north of Spartanburg.

According to the company, the site will feature two residential developments with units starting at just less than $170,000. One development is townhomes built by D.R. Horton, and the other is single-family homes built by Ryan Homes. The Ryan Homes website touts its project as having single-level homes with all lawn maintenance included.

The mixed-use project, dubbed North Springs, also has a 20-acre retail area. It currently has “two national retail tenants and the remaining is under contract with a large retail and grocer developer,” according to the release from LyonJay.
