Columbia Area Developments

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone has already started a thread about this, but I saw this article in The State about the new Congaree Pointe development breaking ground tomorrow. What do you all think about this?

I think it's great. I was just hoping to read in the article that they plan to ask the city to annex them. On the map it looks like it's not too far away.

I think the project will definitely jumpstart Lower Richland in a big way. Kudos to Bible Way for being progressive with that tract of land.

Here are construction updates from some projects going on that don't have their own threads.

There's a rendering on the banner on the fence that fences off the property from the street, but I don't know if anything is available online.

Re: those houses they are building at corner of Woodrow and Millwood. (Old site of ETV) What's up with that transmitting tower still standing in the middle of the construction site? I'm sure those houses are going to be "upscale" and expensive, and it seems like the looming tower would turn off some buyers.

(Great pictures, BTW.)

I *think* ETV still transmits from it, but I'm not really sure. That's the only reason I can think of for its existence. I don't remember a tower at their facilities near the stadium.

SCETV or the Columbia WRLK no longer uses that tower. The tower that is currently in use until we switch to full digital operations, is on Hard Scrabble Road, about nine miles north of downtown. A taller relay tower is located in Sumter (tallest thing in Eastern South Carolina) to reach the Pee Dee area another is located in Spartanburg for the Upstate

It IS the southeast corner.

I thought that was just a staging area for the new baseball stadium? Wish they WOULD develop that lot, and do something about the homeless forest behind it. Having that hangout of indigent and drunk men so close to the sorority dorms should give the parents of these young ladies great pause.

On a separate note, no one has mentioned the re-lettering of the Wilbur Smith building. Yes, those HUGE letters advertising "W I L B U R" to the world have been thankfully replaced with a more understated, new logo for the firm. Thanks for small miracles!

Is it? It seem like they wouldn't need a staging area over there. There is definitely *something* going on. I saw a crew working down in the woods there clearing out some of that junk. It's a real mess in there. I don't know what's going on. Somebody find out! :)

I see some new construction is about to take place on the land right next to St. Peter's Catholic Church on Assembly. Are they building a new wing or what?

The Marriot Courtyard renovations are finally done, and the finished product looks LOADS better. I'm glad this was done; it would have looked even crappier with Adesso next door and the Horizon buildings one block over as it was:
