Here’s the mayor’s vision for repurposing the Greenwood city building: one- or two-bedroom high-end condominiums with hardwood floors and marble counter tops sold for $150,000 to $200,000.

When the city government offices move out next year, Mayor Mark Myers wants a developer to be ready to renovate the building that has served as city hall since the 1980s. Offices, upscale condos or apartments, or small shops could be options for how to use the building at Madison Avenue and Broadway Street, he said.

A major reason the city chose to move its offices was because of the $2.8 million estimate for rehabbing the current 28,000-square-foot city building. The city chose instead to spend $4.6 million to overhaul a 47,000-square-foot office tower nearby. Greenwood still owns the city building, though, and needs to find a use for it that is good for the community, Myers said.
