Downtown Florence is undergoing an exciting redevelopment, which is attracting new shops, restaurants, and neighborhoods to the area. Some of the city’s success stories include the restoration of the Hotel Florence, the establishment of the James Allen Plaza, and the addition of the Dr. Eddie Floyd Tennis Center, just to name a few.

Current projects include the construction of a performing arts center, the replication of the historic Cumberland United Methodist Church, and the new Coit Village residential development.

All of these projects are part of a large effort to make downtown Florence the social, economic, and cultural hub of the city.

Recent projects include the Florence County Museum, Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center, renovation of City Center to house the city offices, a boutique hotel with fine dining restaurant, the Waters Building renovation, the James Allen Plaza, William H.
