Don't see it. So must not be.

"Bull Street developer Bob Hughes said he has contracts to develop 50 acres at the old S.C. State Hospital, with the total investment reaching $350 million." That's from Thestate, Don't know where yall are seeing the 1,000,0000,000 total investment.

You just caught yourself the current 50 acres of 165 do the math. The original numbers have the development at $1 billion. There's 19 more years to go and so much more to do. It's a $1 billion development give or a talk $100 million at most. The first phase is only $350 million.

That's all the phases combined so far.Where is the link with the $1,000,000,000 in investment? I keep asking and nobody can show me.

That number encompasses the following:

Underway
An 8,000-seat, $37 million minor league baseball park
A 143,000-square-foot office and retail building
Renovation of the historic bakery into a workplace sharing space
Pending

Construction of roads and other infrastructure work around the stadium to Calhoun Street
An 800-space, city-funded parking garage
Proposed

A retail center with up to 60 stores
Renovation of the Babcock Building into apartments
A student housing project
Converting Byrnes Hospital into “workforce” apartments
A townhouse development along Calhoun Street

Yes and this is all that has been proposed so far--the first phase.

Now to be fair, the $1 billion figure is for estimated economic impact as opposed to the amount actually invested in the project, but $1 billion will come pretty close to the final number. If the first phase of the project, representing almost 1/3 of the campus, will cost $350 million, then it's certainly reasonable to expect the remainder of the campus to approach $1 billion in investment.

That's a good read about the potential impacts of the development. Yea, the highest number ive seen so far was 350 million. Maybe more investment comes and bumps that up to 1 billion!

I also have good news to report! Don Tomlins towers are still a go. They are also moving their HQ across from the Lady Street Garage. Let's pray the vista allows all this to go through

I have been searching for news on Don Tomlin's tower at Lady and Assembly for months! What else have you heard, and have you seen renderings? I wish someone could post the renderings. A friend of mine who works in the BB&T building saw them once, when the developer was speaking about the shared parking, but they have apparently been well guarded from the public.

So, I just got back from some late night/early morning driving around Columbia. The object of my almost aimless driving is to discover areas that I've never been before. If a street looks unfamiliar, I turn down it. The sketchier the area, the more apt I am to drive down it. Anyways, a few observations:


Some of the houses directly behind 5 points from Harden street are not as ghetto as you might think. I saw several well kept houses (and looked to be recently renovated) off of Walnut or Pine street, cant remember which one. Although, from driving down Harden street, there are a few houses that look as though they could be condemned. But behind those houses you might be pleasantly surprised by several homes.


I ventured down Flora street and E. Broadway street, which are bound by Assembly street and railroad tracks. E. Broadway street is a pretty bumpy, gravely road. It always amazes me the amount of land located off of E Broadway street and the fact that vacant industrial buildings sit idle in a prime location. I believe someone mentioned in another thread that SCE&G own this land. It's really unbelievable to think that you're in downtown Columbia while driving down these roads, because it seems as if you're in a southeastern version of Chernobyl, post melt-down. I hope something will be done with this land one day rather than sit idle.


The apartments off of Blossom street/Pulaski street look awesome. I love what they did with the parking underneath the Blossom street bridge. It looks super urban and big city, IMO. By the way, what's the name of these apartments? All of these student housing developments are so close together, I get them confused. Is it a part of the unfinished development off of Huger and Blossom?
