  1. Here's a detailed write-up about Market on Main in Columbia Regional Business Report. The upfit of Market on Main has added around 1,500 square feet of space, including bathrooms, to the former Zoe’s location, bringing the total interior space to 3,500 square feet. The outdoor patio, which will feature a stage and 20-foot LED television screen, has enclosed the former House of Fabrics property and will abut the green space at the corner of Main and Lady streets.
  2. Segra Park, home of the Columbia Fireflies minor league baseball team, has been named the Class A Ballpark of the Decade by Ballpark Digest.
  3. I checked out the preliminary renderings which jogged my memory; at full buildout it stands to be quite impressive and I'm pretty confident the architecture will be high quality. That's at least a decade out though.
  4. I need to take another look at that development. Right now, I consider Courier Square in Charleston to be the best new mixed-use development statewide.
  5. This could potentially be the best urban mixed-use development in the state upon completion.
  6. A recent research and forecast report from Colliers International South Carolina determined that added parking options in Columbia would increase economic growth and found that the lack of parking is a deterrent in attracting new office and retail tenants. The report concludes that the 2,039 garage parking spaces in downtown Columbia are not enough to encourage new development, but rents need to be higher to make it feasible to build new office spaces downtown that include parking... But parking problems also can signify commercial success, because customers are visiting your office, suggested Lee Mashburn, president of Mashburn Construction. Although he said downtown Columbia needs another parking deck, he said people can also “park one street over and walk.”
  7. A new multi-purpose event venue is coming to the Congaree Vista. Junction 800 will occupy 16,000 square feet in the former Jillian’s space in the 800 block of Gervais St., Columbia-based developer The Arnold Companies said in a news release. The venue will have open floor space and seat more than 500 guests, with the capacity to serve up to 1,000. Junction 800 will be available for events beginning Nov. 1, according to the release.
  8. I don't know of any CF in a downtown area. They always seem to be attached to malls.
  9. It's good to see West Columbia enjoying a mini boom of its own: https://columbiabusinessreport.com/news/real-estate-commercial/77153/
  10. A new entertainment venue is coming to Main Street to the space formerly occupied by Zoe’s Kitchen. Mashburn Construction confirmed plans for Market on Main at 1320 Main St. The Columbia-based contractor is doing upfit work on the new space. Mashburn shared details of the project, which will include an 18-tap self-pour beer, wine and kombucha wall, a 20-foot LED screen for outdoor viewing of sporting events and movies, an outdoor cooking area and patio and an elevated stage, on social media earlier this week. A company spokesperson said Wednesday that an official project announcement will be coming soon. Also it appears that Sumter Street will start getting in on the action downtown: https://columbiabusinessreport.com/news/real-estate-commercial/77149/
  11. Tapp’s Arts Center is moving from Main Street after eight years. The non-profit, established in 2011, didn’t receive the grants it needed from the city, county and state to maintain its presence in the cavernous former department store, director Caitlin Bright said. https://www.thestate.com/news/local/article235293737.html
  12. The city of Columbia is moving forward with a plan to charge business license fees to hospitals, other nonprofits and their subsidiaries who offer services that compete with for-profit businesses. [City councilman Moe] Baddourah noted that 65 percent of property in the city is tax exempt. That is because of the preponderance of state government buildings, USC’s campus, Fort Jackson and property owned by churches, schools and charities in the city. As a result, only 35 percent of property owners foot the bill for the vast majority of city services like fire and police protection, he said. “That’s just not fair,” Baddourah said. Columbia City Council on Tuesday gave initial approval to the measure. The vote was 6-1, with Mayor Steve Benjamin voting no. Benjamin could not be reached for comment Thursday. It will take a second vote for the measure, which is expected to raise $2 million to $4 million annually, to become city policy. Under the proposal, businesses that have a 501(c) tax status from the IRS — but otherwise operate as a profitable company — would begin paying business license fees like the rest of the city’s businesses. Baddourah first made the proposal in 2015. Charities and places of worship would remain exempt from business license fees unless they rent out space as an event venue or sell food, Baddourah said. https://amp-thestate-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/amp.thestate.com/news/local/article235254212.html?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thestate.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Farticle235254212.html
  13. The lot that formerly housed House of Fabrics is being transformed into an outdoor dining space adjacent to the Meridian Building. There's a link to the DDRC submission on the September agenda. Preliminary work has already begun it appears.
  14. Why such a bland color scheme though? Come on Ben...
  15. This is most likely Michigan's to lose: https://www.autonews.com/automakers-suppliers/mahindra-eyes-2nd-michigan-plant-part-bid-postal-contract
