Whistle-Stop (3/14)



  1. This is phase 2 of the Carolina Crossroads project.
  2. Heard yesterday this will be a 1 billion dollar investment, to be completed in 4 stages. I hope they announce it soon. I have never been very patient.
  3. I would agree. I would not make any changes to the Peace Center's exterior. It is just right, as is.
  4. I am hearing a lot of chatter about a transformative project near Williams Brice Stadium. One of my sources has indicated it will be on the portion of the Fairgrounds property that actually represents the midway (not the grassy parking area), and that it essentially will be an athletic and shopping complex like that at Disney. Others have compared it to the Battery entertainment district, surrounding the Braves' suburban ballpark, featuring hotels, residential, restaurants, etc. Does anyone know anything about this? Would love to see some preliminary renderings. I, for one, would not miss the State Fair, at its current location. I'd be delighted to see something of this magnitude take its place.
  5. More housing on the way. https://www.wistv.com/2022/08/31/new-housing-plans-unveiled-bullstreet-district/
  6. https://www.wistv.com/2022/08/26/plans-revitalize-finlay-park-final-stages-construction-expected-begin-this-spring/ I hope this plan brings the park back to life.
  7. Interesting story on the conversion of a church into apartments on Rosewood. https://www.thestate.com/homes/article264560306.html
  8. Opening next Spring. Going to be massive, and one of a kind! https://columbiabusinessreport.com/news/construction/82424/
  9. https://www.newsbreak.com/news/2706158051944/after-years-of-visioning-south-main-street-is-still-ugly-usc-says-it-won-t-be-for-long I'm trying to get my bearings here. There appears to be a smokestack in the rendering, which would be where the Horseshoe sits.
  10. I visited REI yesterday, and had lunch at Publico. I intend to catch a Fireflies game in the next two weeks. Folks, I have to say I was a little blown away by the amount of construction going on, and the quality of it. This is going to be a destination. It is starting to feel like its own separate downtown area. It took years to gain traction, but from what I saw yesterday, it is full speed ahead, with multiple buildings rising at once.
  11. Perhaps I should have left this in "coffee house". See what I did there? https://www.postandcourier.com/free-times/food/nibbles_and_sips/north-mains-curiosity-coffee-bar-begins-selling-canned-nitro-cold-brew-around-the-city/article_9ca3a1a0-0f7a-11ed-816c-9bfe62f8fb9c.html
  12. New hotel planned near Lexington Medical Center. https://www.postandcourier.com/columbia/business/new-hotel-planned-for-bustling-west-columbia-hospital-corridor/article_367ab6de-09bc-11ed-9452-cb79ff28e789.html#tncms-source=article-nav-next

    Dum spiro spero..while I breathe, I hope. Folks, this transformative plan, which has been in existence since 2007, is still active. The bridge over Greene Street should open any day. Greene is the main artery in this plan, and I forsee a lot more development on the way, for this part of our downtown. https://planninganddevelopment.columbiasc.gov/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/innovistamasterplan.pdf
  14. https://www.aol.com/news/controversial-downtown-columbia-hotel-clears-215717721.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAH1yoC9uHEADw0xCXwAv_IRlijd_1yRf9-bhadxXpjy11obJdiiZllhRf7AjA8oOjSvhoSnj1dnoW1L3ApPOT-HPJhz4il_E15nH4ZV4nTvsMM6kDwTsZOSPy3sDU-XDBILyn1bmhxM0bBIeDA91YHZ5Zh7f6J0Wdnm6VVwPGjyt 1st approval made yesterday.
  15. New hotel and parking deck for the Vista. https://www.wltx.com/article/money/business/mixed-feelings-proposed-vista-hotel-columbia-sc/101-5acf5b22-da2c-406c-bc31-4d73ffc1fee2
