    Bull Street Common

    A pizza joint is obviously nothing to get excited about, but the article said nothing of them opening a location at BullStreet Common. I'm as anxious as every else to find out what will locate there.

    Columbia Photo of the Day

    Here are a few photos from Pride last weekend with an estimated 55,000 in attendance.

    Game Changer!

    I think a small amusement park in the Vista would be a great addition. It would need more than a ferris wheel, though, imo.

    Kline City Center

    I have a feeling that City Council (and some others) have been given the names of the companies with the LOI's, but the rest of us would like to know, too.

    Bull Street Common

    LOL, Garnet was just joking. Those were just placeholders for the building design. If Hughes wants to keep this market interested he needs to make some announcements very soon.

    Five Points

    The bus station should move back to their old location on Blanding at Sumter or next to the Amtrak Station.

    South Carolina's population growth

    I think we will see Columbia's (city) growth rate accelerate in 2014 - 2016 with all of the downtown housing projects newly open, under construction and planned. I predict we will exceed 140,000 by the 2017 estimates, if not by 2016.

    Columbia Transit

    I like the one on the left except buses will never be confused with rapid transit.
  9. 277 was originally supposed to connect to 126 and continue along the river to 77 near Bluff Road. This plan was nixed because it would have ruined the Cottontown, Earlewood Park and Elmwood Park neighborhoods.
  10. Dining out, grocery shopping, clothes, etc.

    I like the cladding; it will look awesome when finished.
  12. Me too! In addition to that I've made a commitment to spend money in Richland County versus neighboring counties. For instance, I would go to VAS instead of Columbiana.

    Main Street/CBD Developments

    It will be a restaurant called "Bourbon" with New Orleans cuisine.
  14. I totally agree - my plan would be to double the width of the sidewalks to allow for al fresco dining, take out the median parking and one traffic lane. The result would still have a four land thoroughfare with a linear park in the middle that would be the width of the current median plus the parking. There could be fountains, benches and monuments all the way from Elmwood to Blossom.

    USC Projects & Construction (excluding Innovista)

    I think they should convert the Coliseum into the a new student union - there could be retail and restaurants where the concourse is located and install an ice skating rink where the basketball court is.
