From overseeing the redevelopment and leasing of The Junction at Downtown Airport to the historic revitalization of Burdette Central in Simpsonville, the Reedy River Retail team has demonstrated a knack for transforming spaces. Their current project, Hammett Street Market, a 30,000 square foot food hall linking to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, is yet another testament to their innovative approach. Notable tenants, including Dunkin’ Donuts, Tipsy Taco, and Brixx Wood Fired Pizza, further underline their impact.
