The property will also include on-site surface parking and a stand-alone drive-through remote teller. 

“Spartanburg is an important market for us and we are excited to have this opportunity to improve our presence in the community,” said Lynn Harton, president and chief operating officer at United Community Bank. “We look forward to continuing to grow with Spartanburg, and believe this is an ideally located property that will serve as a gateway into the expanding downtown area.”

The development was originally envisioned by Guy W. Harris, Partner with Spencer/Hines Properties. Brody Glenn of Centennial American Properties is leading development of the project, the first for Centennial in downtown Spartanburg. Construction is expected to begin later this year. The total building will be 15, 731 square feet and there will be 101 parking spaces.
