Stretching west from US 13 in the heart of the city to NC 121 near Farmville, West Greenville encompasses fast-developing suburban areas and scenic farm country.
The urban sprawl that’s spread over the rest of Greenville is slowly reaching the west side. Upscale apartment complexes have brought in new residents and employees to the bustling Medical District, the top contributor of Greenville’s economy.
There’s still plenty of scenic North Carolina in this evolving locale. The Phil Carroll Nature Preserve that sits along the Tar River provides a glimpse into the vast ecosystem that surrounds the city. West Greenville is largely populated by recognizable chain restaurants and shops, but most residents will find themselves minutes from the center of what was once named one of the nation’s best small cities for business and careers by Forbes.
