The original facade of the New York Style men's clothing store at 1608 Main will be restored and an awning will be added. The most recent marble tile facade has already been removed.

It would be nice if the Solid Gold building next door was next.

It looks like the facade improvement project is continuing to spread beyond Main Street. The Powell Furniture building at 1519 Sumter St. and the twin Western Auto and Rose Talbert buildings at 1222 and 1224 Taylor St. will receive a $7.5 million facelift because of an expanded Main Street historic district that allows the developers to leverage tax credits and other incentives. The Powell Furniture building will be Phase I of the redevelopment process. The Boudreaux Group architecture and planning firm, a partner in the project, will occupy the second floor, leaving 6,000 square feet on the first floor for retail. The Taylor Street buildings will be Phase 2 of the project, which will begin in the first quarter of 2017. Those buildings will be renovated with just exterior and shell work until a tenant is located — probably office or retail.

$106M USC Business School 'Obsolete The Day it Opened' - Quorum Columbia

Speaking of business, this piece blasts the new business school. They've already run out of room. Ridiculous. I agree with the he sentiment of this piece. Sorry, but it's an ugly building. The new Arnold School of public health is much better aesthetically.

I've heard the business school is already out of room. That's ridiculous.

Its appearance is polarizing. Personally, I like it, but lots of people don't.

I had a friend in town last night. We went to the Sheraton Rooftop and it was packed with a diverse, interesting crowd. Many people were marveling over the view, taking photos and videos with their phones. We rode down the elevator with a couple from out of town who were here just for a night out. They loved Columbia.

We then went to Bourbon and The Whig. Both crowded with interesting people. Main Street was hopping with activity. People of all ages walking around, riding bikes, etc. Only saw one homeless person who was sleeping and didn't bother anyone. We then headed into the Vista which was also bustling.

Our Uber driver was a Nigerian immigrant who came to Columbia from Atlanta to pursue a master's degree. He said he loved the size of Columbia and he and his wife want to stay here.

That is all to say Columbia felt like a vibrant, diverse, and cosmopolitan place last night. My friend was impressed and I was proud to call this place home.

I love the building; maybe they can expand into the Coliseum and renovate it.
