  1. Sweet! I'll drive past tomorrow on my way to work. This will be a nice addition to the skyline.
  2. https://www.thestate.com/news/local/article252621533.html This deal has been on the table for years now. I get so frustrated by how slow things get done in my hometown. This would be a no-brainer. Rickenmann is running for mayor, and is trying to show he is the fiscal conservative. If this can be financed without causing unnecessary liability to the city, then there seems no need to oppose it. This would be one of those "transformative" projects with ripple effects to the city and region's economies that are difficult to estimate. Do it..NOW!

    https://www.wistv.com/2021/06/23/state-legislature-budgets-850k-five-points-road-project-paving-way-harden-street-changes/ This is good news. I hope that these changes not only improve pedestrian and biking safety, but motivate more business opportunity in the village.
  4. Man, that was a FANTASTIC read! No apologies required. Great stuff!
  5. So your family was visiting from Atlanta? Did they make any comparisons or point out any differences between the two cities? It seems these are the two cities in our region that, for lack of a better word, have a rivalry, much like Houston vs Dallas. I have always enjoyed being a fly on the wall hearing residents of each metro area fight it out for which is best, cleaner, safer, more interesting, better shopping, whatever. I'd be curious to know what, if any, comments along those lines might have been made.
  6. Has anyone heard any update on the proposed condo tower to be constructed next door to the Richland County Library's main branch, on Assembly? I drive past that parcel regularly, and there is no sign of life. Did the project get killed by the pandemic? On the opposite side of the street, however, there is good progress being made on new condos.
  7. https://www.wistv.com/2021/05/26/uofsc-breaks-ground-multi-million-dollar-campus-village/ This project had been delayed by the pandemic, but now shovels are moving dirt. This will really change the look and feel of the south side of campus, and simultaneously add more density to the city.
  8. Was in Greenville yesterday visiting my daughter, and we drove downtown to walk around Main St. Firstly, let me say I continue to be more and more impressed with the density..not only the street level pedestrian activity, but the density of commercial and residential development (and its quality). Kudos to Greenville for creating an incredible city! I will say, the controversy about the statues did pop on on my news feed a few days ago, so, needless to say, we had to go look at them. I don't get the fuss. I have lived in SC all my life, so I am well aware the upstate is much more conservative

    This is good news. A few years back, there was a similar development proposed for the same parcel (I believe). Architecturally speaking, it was interesting, and was brick, instead of a lot of new construction these days with cheap looking building materials. Unfortunately, due to its proposed height, it was shot down, and in hindsight, rightly so. It dwarfed everything else around it, which, as you know, is consistent in its low heights. I look forward to seeing renderings, and hope it ticks all the boxes, to get built.
  10. Now, if the city could just fix the train problem there, on Assembly, we'd be in business!
  11. If anyone is able to get behind the paywall, please tell us the substance of this report. Looks like Aughtry is wanting out, and looking to sell this really important piece of Vista property. https://www.postandcourier.com/columbia/business/developer-of-huge-columbia-vista-site-changes-plans-seeks-new-partners/article_27476db6-a788-11eb-972a-27f784d4f9ef.html
