Brookland has started building, there is framing up on a 4 story building, the half-billion dollar "campus village" will be starting very soon, Sola Station (a giant 340 unit development) at canalside is about half way finished, the apartment building at Assembly and Pendleton has topped out (I think), the Children's Law center on Gervais has submitted its proposal for building, the Hilton Garden Inn/Home2 suites next to that is nearing completion, the Prioreschi's sold the Tapps building, so that should get them some cash for the Owens Building project on lady street, Gonzales Gardens is coming down, quite rapidly and new homes are being built in the lyon street community, the 15 story building on Assembly is on hold to reassess demand, and I think Kline is looking for a zoning exception for parking.

Right now, there is also a lot of action in Melrose Heights and Rosewood with conversions of former rentals into single family homes, as more students choose to live in the large complexes.

Pavilion Tower was recently re-positioned to the more high end Vista Towers, so it was kind of like a new 240 unit complex came on line in that space as well.

The demo of Gonzales Gardens is going to open up that whole area across from Providence. It is already "bookended" by the more affluent developments to the east "Forest Hills" and Melrose Heights to the south. Historic Waverly to the west will also benefit.. Those new homes on Lyon Street are selling slooowly. But I think they will move more quickly once the new development starts filling in. There are a few blocks between Melrose Heights (proper) and south of Gervais St that still needs some work along wih the back of MLK Park.. but I think overall these areas will improve

Ugh me or student housing. Come on man. That's actually for once doesn't sit well with me. That lot would be nice to have a bunch of mix use. Especially if Kline City Center build out and the possibility of a big box stores next to that.

Do other areas of SC suffer like we did from the Housing Market slaughter? My house in Lake Carolina is worth less now than in 2001 when we bought it new. And the VC Sumner shutdown made it even worse.

This old duplex is being gutted into a single family.
https://www.google.com/maps/@34.0084...!7i3328!8i1664

This was a rental for a while and now is being remodeled.
https://www.google.com/maps/@34.0060...7i13312!8i6656

This was a rental a while back and they are finally doing some major renovation.
https://www.google.com/maps/@34.0063...7i13312!8i6656

Not sure what the story is with this house, but someone renovated it and it looks great now.

Of course there are still some complexes that were built to be multifamily and I have not seen a lot of change at those properties. Not really sure what someone could do with those.

"▪ Student housing at the proposed Kline Center on Huger Street and at the BullStreet development at the former S.C. State Hospital campus never materialized."

Kline is not happening. We can talk about it as if it's still in the pipeline, but it's not. This offers a substantial upgrade to what's currently there and an additional shot in the arm to the Vista (by virtue of adding residents to the CBD/Vista population). I say build away!
