GoUpstate: Inman lays groundwork for growth

Inman Growth

By: Bob Montgomery, Spartanburg Herald Journal

Anyone looking for the next hot spot for growth need look no farther than Inman. Community leaders are busy planting the seeds they hope will produce new development for years to come.

Earlier this week, the Greater Inman Area Chamber of Commerce held a welcoming event at Bishop Farm for local politicians, property owners, Realtors, bankers and developers. The group was introduced to “Inman 29349,” a vision of growth for the wide geographic ZIP code of nearly 30,000 residents that surrounds Inman, from Lake Lyman to the west to Lake Bowen and Fingerville to the northeast, to just north of Boiling Springs to the east, and Cunningham to the south.

“Growth is already underway in Inman, with the soon-to-begin $25 million restoration of the 114-year-old Inman Mills property. It will be converted to four floors of 159 apartments with walking trails nearby.

Business leaders say Inman's location makes it an ideal place for development. The city is near the foothills of North Carolina’s mountains, and close to Lake Cooley and Lake Bowen; offers easy access to two major interstates, I-26 and I-85; is near Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport and the Inland Port; and is expecting a new $13.9 million sewer line along Highway 292 to I-26.
