Columbia Wish List 2009

15 posts in this topic

I don't think 2009 is going to be a stellar year for development anywhere in the nation really, but there's still some things I'd like to see:

1. Center Vista breaks ground.

2. Tenants are found for the Palmetto Center.

3. Renovations begin on 1441 Main (new Midlands HQs for Wells Fargo).

4. More retail comes to Main.

5. Innovista lands more tenants.

6. Preliminary work begins on the new Riverfront Park.

7. Something, ANYTHING happens with the Bull Street campus.

8. More retail comes to Lady.

9. Work begins on CanalFront.

10. A big economic development is announced.

The realist in me doesn't feel that many of your wishes will come true.

Sorry.

But playing along...

1) Finish the North Main road repairs.

2) Fix the sewer plant.

3) Revitalize hyatt Park area

4) Put brick facades on CanalPlace

5) Develop some of the vacant lots on Huger between Blossom and Gervais

6) Olympia revitalization

7) Mill village at west end of Gervais Street bridge revitalization

Maybe if they painted it a better set of colors and fixed the roads around it it would be more appealing.... Just a thought. And yea, I know there's a recession.

Its at least partially the market. They finished right about the time the market started to tank. I think that over time, especially as Innovista takes off, it will fill in nicely.

^ I agree. If Innovista takes off, everything else will follow.

Hopefully having the National Hydrogen Association's annual meeting in Columbia this year will results in some tenants for Innovista.
