Lake Murray building a resort

12 posts in this topic

I saw an article in the neighbors section of the state newspaper about a company from florida building a huge resort on lake murray. I actually saved the article but I can't find it now. has anyone else heard of this? I need to clean my house and see if I can find it.

Oh my! I didn't see that. They'll be up in arms about that over there. Remember the fight over those tall-ish condos ... and there was something else recently but I can't remember what.

One thing I've always thought would be successful over there is a shoreline shopping/restaurant area with townhomes and such. I always pictured it like a little version of Portofino, Italy, but with a more appropriately local design.

It'd be awesome if some developer would come in and buy the increasingly crappy Yatch Cove, level it and build something like this. :)

Never heard of this. Wouldn't be suprised though. Sounds like a good idea.

Yeah I saw an artist rendering in the neighbors section, but of course I can't find it right now!!! Anyway the thing is pretty big!!! It looks like it's supposed to be on the coast somewhere!

By the way I love that rendering that would look awesome at Lake Murray! I wouldn't be suprised to see something like that go up in the near future, mabye not in Lexington Co., but Newberry.

I think it'd be awesome if the Yatch Cove could be redeveloped like that -- you'd see it as you come across the dam from Lexington. YC is seriously dated and in need of a serious refurb.

Was this story in today's paper??

Is it my imagination or does there seem to be alot more development going on in Columbia now than ever before?

Definitely. If you could buy stock in cities Columbia would be a strong buy -- and probably still a pretty good value. I'd buy it.

We should -- I'm not volunteering to do it alone :) -- make a list of *all* the projects going on like they have in the Charlotte forum.

Yeah there's alot going on and I think it's only just the begining! Once the campus gets going and if the city gets the mysterious auto executive to build a plant here it will definately be a hotbed! Hell, I think it will take off even without the rumored plant. It's just the right time for it too happen! People are realizing the opportunities in the south and everyone can't fit in Atlanta, Charlotte, & Raleigh-Durham. If there are other cities out there with similair opportunities and ammenities (Columbia, Greenville, Charleston) then people will take notice and move there too. It's funny the area has always had the right ingredients but never had that spark! Right now I still don't believe a spark has been lit. I think a line leading too the dynamite is being established!

Don't know if this helps but if anyone has an old paper or access to the Thursday December 16th Neighbors section of the state newspaper the article I believe is in there on the inside the front cover.

I finally found the article pertaining to this, and it's not a resort it's a residential and recreational community. I'm going to post it in the Columbia developments thread though.
