Greenville City Council gave final approval - by a 5-2 vote - to build an observation tower in Unity Park, committing both public and private funds to the project. 

Called Honor Tower, the structure would create an accessible, unique vantage point in the park, offering visitors an elevated, panoramic view of the downtown skyline and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The name “Honor Tower” pays homage to first responders, including police officers, firefighters and military personnel.

The $11 million tower will be funded with a combination of public and private funds:

  • Private donations: $5.5 million
  • Local Accommodations Tax: $3.5 million
  • Hospitality Tax: $1 million
  • Unity Park construction savings: $1 million
