Actually yes it has. A lot of things have gone under during that time.

Yeah when Columbia Place went down that was the room of Two Notch. However Farrow Road is going through a rebirth. Maybe Two Notch will follow

I don't see Two Notch from I-20 to Beltline coming back any time soon. The sections outside of that stretch will certainly be stable or improve especially down in the City where you have plans to redevelop the old Midlands Shopping Center, the old Ford Dealership will likely follow and Benedict will continue to develop its athletic complex over time. The section between I-20 and Beltline will continue to serve small businesses that cater to the surrounding neighborhood (which is great) but I woudnt hold my breath for much beyond that. As for Columbia Place.. there should be some form of major redevelopment plan created between the property owner and the County to severe as the catalyst for improvement especially with the loss of Sears.


It amazes me that politicos can come together to think of all types of incentives for things like apartment buildings but are silent on some of these more challenged areas. They could draw a line around each of the Regions struggling Malls. Columbia Place, Richland and Dutch Square and develop a lucrative "incentive" and maybe some subordinate local financing to encourage their redevelopment into mixed use center. This could be a combination of housing(with both market rate and affordable), retail, office, and light industrial. YOu could create livable neighborhoods with built in retail services, and potential employment all in the same development.. which has bee rebranded as "town centers" by the real estate moguls in the new suburbs. I would support the use of my tax dollars to shore up these projects as opposed to a baseball stadium downtown where quite frankly I am more than satisfied with the Vista and Main St as centers of entertainment.

There are new nice homes going up behind the old Gonzales Gardens. They resemble the ones that replaced Saxon Homes a while ago.. They are selling for around $150k and up. It looks like about ten or so for starters..Behind the one in the photo you can see the now closed GG> There is a nice park there and it is close to downtown, Providence and most in town amenities. My only complaint is.. why why why did they not build them on crawl spaces????!!! This is a historic area and most of the homes in the area are on brick or wooden crawl spaces AND it gives the home more character not to be "at grade" with the lawn...Anyway....This area is part of Greater Waverly and will likely improve considerably once the now vacant GG gets torn down. directly east of his area across Manning St is a very affluent community I believe called Forest Hills? Where homes start at $400k

I would be concerned about buying in that area until one sees what will be developed in the old Gonzales Gardens area. Right now the city powers are concentrating on the Bull St. development.

This is great! USC needed a Gamecock store on Main Street. UofSC Bookstore is kind of out of the way and Carolina Bookstore on south Main, while close, is out of the way for people staying downtown. It's also nice that they sell strictly Gamecock apparel unlike the bookstores.
