Larkins Restaurants plans for Camperdown Plaza location approved

Plans to modify the outdoor space that will house a new restaurant for Larkin’s Restaurants at 32 East Broad Street were approved by the Greenville Design Review Board Urban Panel on Thursday.

Plans submitted by Narramore Associates, Inc. include redesigning the space that faces Camperdown Plaza, replacing the existing light anodized curtain walls with dark masonry and bifold glass doors, and creating a a new main entrance, in accordance with DRB documents.

The design changes are intended to distinguish the restaurant space from the rest of the building, which is the office space occupied by The Greenville News.

At the DBR meeting, Shea O’Brien, with Narramore Associates, noted that “time is running out” to move forward with design approval.

The Peace Center, which has owned the property where Larkin’s on the River is located for 17 years, has not renewed the restaurant’s lease, O’Brien said, and the current lease would end in August.

The Design Review Committee will hear plans for changes to the exterior of the building's dining space.

Larkin’s Restaurants leased the 6,000 square foot space at the corner of Broad and Falls Street in 2018. The restaurant group, which owns Larkin’s on the River, three Grill Marks locations, Limoncello and several private event venues, including the L and Larkins at Sawmill, has yet to announce a final concept for the space.

The Greenville News has contacted Larkin’s Restaurants for more details. Larkin Hammond, owner of Larkin’s Restaurants, declined to share further details about the restaurant at this time.
