So, after 10 years of reading Gsupstate, Greenville (the poster) and a few other Greenville posters trash Columbia for silly reasons, all it took was a mention of Charlotte to redirect the hatred. Glad we inCharlotte can help.

I do think we have gone off course.

Wasn't it a couple of years ago that someone announced unrealized plans to build two 20+ story student housing buildings in the Vista? Bob Ellis did this with his Pinnacle on Main in Greenville. It happens all the time. Heck, the fact that Hughes bought the Bull Street property PROBABLY indicates that he wants to develop it. I don't think that's offensive or a no-no.
Do you think Hughes is going to do anything with Bull St? News from that site has been very quiet, almost like it is not going to happen. Any news/rumors in Greenville?

I haven't heard anything. Not that I would anyway. But it IS a huge site... There's no telling long it could take, but I can be pretty certain in saying it will be worth the wait...

I would like to be optimistic. Development of the site seems to have lost momentum. I hope I am wrong but, I am worried that Hughes has so much to work on in Greenville, this may not happen.

Gman, are you hearing anything?

The prophecy is coming true.. If the City of Columbia buys the Palmetto Compress Building... I can see Walmart going into it.... This would have been the one that would have gone into the Olympia site.. which now seems quiet and void of any development talk. If the City owns the Palmetto Compress they can offer incentives and what not to get a developer to come in and build it per the City and historic preservationist specifications.. Wal Mart.. though not popular.... would certainly be a main anchor to make the project viable.... then they could put the housing upstairs...Most would not object to Wal Mart if it saves a historic building..All they need to do is save the facade adn build a new building inside.... Win Win for all..

"You're a river city," a San Francisco urban designer tells Columbia. And Columbia's about to start acting like it.

I think Columbia is doing fine. Like every city, there's room for improvement. That $1 billion over the next 20 years for transit, roads, sidewalks, greenways and connectivity should go a long way toward those improvements.

Santiago is a good stand-in, and would probably make a great chief.
