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.

Today, Columbia City Council is scheduled to vote on two 5 Points area projects that would make a significant impact: 1) the proposed redevelopment of 2221 Devine St (sits right above 5 Points) from a former state office building into condos and retail, and 2) the redevelopment of the Wells Fargo bank branch into a hotel. Fingers crossed they both get the green light.

Yes. There is one in Greenville, and I have been to the one in CLT.  It is a great breakfast place. The pancakes were a letdown but the BACON, the Grits and the French Toast are all really good.

I could eat breakfast at any hour of the  day. Looking forward to giving it a try!

What ??!!!   Yesterday's closed ??!!  

I had no idea!   When did that happen?

It was definitely a Columbia institution.  

That brunch place looks great though, hope they come to Greenville.

I guess they've been closed for about one year. Duncan McRae had been on site, running day to day operations since it opened in 1978. I guess it was time. Will miss it, though.
