I cut some slack, too, but if you're going to go around writing about cities, at least keep abreast of the latest info the urban geeks keep up with.

The plan is to begin construction in the fall. Like all large projects there could be delays.

But that wasn't the focus of the article, especially since the updated MSA/CSA designations haven't been featured in any major news outlets (that I know of). It's really not a big deal--at this point anyway.

Now had they said that Columbia is home to the state's sole Fortune 500 company, as The State still says, then I'd have no slack to cut them since that information is woefully outdated.

Don't forget the USC Alumni Assoc office, that's a $28 million project I believe.

Monarch Ventures closed on the property a few weeks ago and said they would start construction shortly thereafter. They said that the dorm should be completed by August 2014.

I forgot about that project, it is much larger than I originally thought. When is the Hyatt starting construction?

Should get interesting.... if the Hospitality Industry sues the City to prevent the acquisition of the building...At some point the property owner may say F#@k it and just tears it down rather than wait for the outcome of law suits and counter suits..........

In reading the law it appears that historic preservation is a legal use for the fund.
