SeamonWhiteside (SW+), a full-service site design firm with offices throughout the Carolinas, announced it will be relocating its Greenville office to the historic Judson Mill District. The multi-disciplinary firm will move its 46 employees from its 7,500-square-foot space on Rhett Street to a 14,730-square-foot space in the Warehouse Building at Judson Mill.
A firm that is expanding quickly across the Southeast, the relocation of SeamonWhiteside’s office to the Judson Mill District will foster opportunities for growth and collaboration.
“Our firm is a collaborative group always looking to stay on the leading edge of our industry. When looking for a new space for our Greenville team, we didn’t want just another office setting, we wanted an innovative and unconventional work environment for our team to be able to collaborate, ” says Joe Bryant, PE, Executive Vice President of SeamonWhiteside. “It was also important to find a space to recruit and retain talent that reflects our forward-thinking mindset. We are looking forward to moving into the new space at Judson Mill and all that it has to offer.”
The firm is not new to the Judson Mill campus, having worked alongside architects McMillan Pazdan Smith and contractor Triangle Construction on the redesign of Judson Mill over the past several years.
“SeamonWhiteside has been a long-term partner of the Judson Mill project and has played a significant role in the re-vitalization of the mill,” said president of Belmont Sayre and co-developer Kenneth Reiter. “We are thrilled to have them on campus and look forward to growing and continuing our partnership.”
This is a monumental year for SeamonWhiteside’s Greenville team as the office celebrates its 20th anniversary and moves into its new space in December. With the addition of SeamonWhiteside at Judson Mill, the Warehouse building is now fully leased and currently occupied by Cowboy Up, Blochaven, Feed & Seed, and the recently announced Judson Mill Community Innovation Hub (JudHub).
Avison Young, a global commercial real estate company in Greenville, spearheaded the leasing efforts with SeamonWhiteside on behalf of the Judson Mill District.
“We are proud to have led the leasing efforts at Judson Mill since April 2021,” said Chris Prince, vice president at Avison Young. “Finalizing a lease with an office user of SeamonWhiteside’s caliber continues to build on the exceptional tenant mix at Judson Mill.”

About Judson Mill District
Judson Mill District is a sustainable and vibrant mixed-use community offering soulful city living in Greenville, SC. Once the largest textile mill in Greenville County and an integral part of Greenville’s Mill Crescent wrapping the city’s west side, Judson Mill District is now home to office, restaurant, brewery, retail, entertainment, and residential spaces. In 2018, Taft Family Ventures, a distinguished real estate investment and development firm based in Greenville, NC, joined with Belmont Sayre, a privately held real estate investment and development company based in Chapel Hill, NC, to transform the historic 800,000-square-foot textile mill that closed in 2015. While maintaining its vision to preserve the soul, spirit, and features of the historic mill, Judson Mill District utilizes a sustainable approach in revitalizing its 36-acre campus, which now fosters a vibrant and affordable community where people live, work, and play.
