#YeahTHATAgenda: New Falls Tower Details, TopGolf Opens First SC Location, BMW and Daimler Partner, Making THC from Yeast

Feb 28, 2019 08:53AM ● By Chris Haire
The website for Falls Tower, the signature high-rise of Downtown Greenville's Camperdown development, is live and it features new renderings and details, including a ninth-floor grilling terrace and a rooftop pool.

One particular noteworthy feature of the website: a 360-degree view of what residents and their guests may be able to see from the top of the tower. 

No prices are given for the units, but the website encourages interested parties to fill out an online form and a "Falls Tower Camperdown condominium specialist will be in touch shortly" or they can call 828.243.0774.

Although Bank of America and Elliott Davis will call Falls Tower home, elevators will be programmed to allow condo dwellers to bypass all office floors.
