4. The 126 -26-St. Andrews - 20 Interchange mapped out a little better (FLYOVERS!!)

5. Canalside in general

6. The new USC baseball Stadium ahead of schedule

Make one of those towers a residential condo with apartments in a full range from relatively inexpensive studio to top end 4 bedroom penthouse.

Not just more retail, but a variety of retail.

Let's see what I can come up with.

1) Innovista being developed ahead of schedule

2) A new non-boxy 400'-450' tower downtown (NOT on Main)

3) A city-county consolidation

4) Streetscapings completed

5) Renovating/overhauling facades and signs on Main

6) Some development along Pulaski

7) Get the Greenway finished

8) Downtown retail

9) A downtown movie theatre

10) Bull Street project moving ahead with housing available for all income levels

1. Nickelodeon finalizes plans to move to the old Fox Theater on Main St.

2. I would love to see a retirement community in City Center so they can have an active lifestyle and walk around downtown.

3. More residential fill all around the CBD and Vista Area

4. Some botique stores to start to open on Main

5. Some nice plans to renovate and find good uses for two landmarks.

6. I first class condo project to be announced either in city center or Vista. Not worried about height just a project that is cool looking and cool ammenities.

7. Resolve the Homeless issue

8. Announcement of another attraction that could help bring in tourism.

A 1,500 foot building in Columbia for no other reason than to shock and awe everyone on this forum having all of us spitting, sputtering, asking why, etc. Yeah it would look so out of place (like a telephone pole next to some fence posts) but what a shock effect it would have. :lol:

Seriously, a 450-500 foot would be just what is needed there.
