On Friday, May 17, 2019, six members of Greenville County Council unveiled a plan to relocate the County Office building rather than build a new building at the present County Square location.  The cost of the relocation of the County and State offices would be $63.9 million.   That is over $100 million less than the presently proposed redevelopment plan for County Square.

It is proposed that County Offices be moved to the former Fluor building at 350 /352 Halton Road. The price for purchase, upgrading and adding 10,000 square feet to the building would be $33.5 million.
