  1. I think it's sand colored brick, they are just now covering the building with it.
  2. All the other student housing complexes look miles better than the proposed Edge. Cheap software? Intern architect?
  3. Well they are installing many lights along the trail but I am concerned about safety too, especially the homeless potentially spilling in from Finlay park.
  4. The trail follows the old railroad track that used to run under the Laurel, Richland and Calhoun Street bridges. Sorry I know "Lincoln" tunnel seems misleading but that's the official name for the project. Also, I didn't mention before but the ribbon cutting is set for July 13th.
  5. The Lincoln tunnel rails to trails project is one that I think hasn't been documented as well as it should be. Phase 2 of the project will be completed by the end of this summer after a few setbacks due to the city going $200,000 over budget. Phase 2 includes an extention of the trail from Finlay park to Elmwood Avenue. Here is a link to my flickr page that has some pictures of the progress. https://www.flickr.com/gp/[email protected]/56Winu

    General construction update:
  7. The riverfront is coming but it's going to take another 5-10 years. First a bridge has to be built across the railroad track for Greene Street to be extended towards the river. Greene Street will be a streetscaped pedestrian/bike/car road that will connect residents from downtown Columbia to the river. Things are progressing slowly because the land right along the river has to be cleaned because of tar pollution or something, I forgot. The first phase of Greene should be completed by August. The second phase along with the bridge will be started in 2017 and finished in 2019, and from there pla
  8. I just hope they aren't looking for as many relocations as they are new business because relocations can hurt other areas such as Main Street that have taken years to revitalize. Didn't the law firm that moved into the First Base building relocate from Main Street? Also, where are people parking for the baseball games and when is the first parking garage going to be built?
  9. There's still a lot of work to be done with connecting the Vista to the CBD across Assembly Street. The sudden expansion of USC/Innovista across Assembly triggered the streetscaping of Assembly between Pendleton & Blossom and now Greene street towards the river, making both streets much more pedestrian friendly. The same needs to happen now on Assembly between Senate & Washington and the key will be as growingup15 noted, new construction on parking lots and parking garages between those streets.
  10. I think the Bull Street Common stands a bigger chance of getting business than Innovista in the short term, office buildings are already going up in the Commons (the first and second base buildings). Innovista is trending more towards student housing right now.
  11. Charlotte is pushing the "Charlotte's got a lot" advertisement more than ever right now. We should release our own ad saying "Columbia happily welcomes all of Charlotte's jobs and businesses"
  12. I heard about this but I had no clue it had made such an impact, wow
  13. yeah city-data I thought Charlotte was doing better than Atlanta in some aspects?
  14. I don't know how many of y'all check the other forum but if you don't already know there were some renderings released not too long ago depicting a Nike store, Starbucks, a brewery, an H&M, a Cobb movie theater, and a Firebirds Wood Fired Grill among other blurred out signage. This doesn't confirm anything but it does provide us with some insight into what kind of retail the developer is looking for.
  15. Maybe it's opening next to the new Dave and Busters in the mall but I doubt it or we would have heard something about it by now. Especially since D&B is opening in the fall.
