The Jim Moore site would be ideal for this because its still very close to downtown.. but near the heart of NOMA or whatever its being called. I like that things are happening downtown.. but I don't think it needs to get over done.. so hopefully it will spread
As someone who lives very nearby, I am very anxious for something to happen on that Jim Moore site. Especially considering the mini-boom Cottontown is currently having, that lot is prime real estate for a small mixed-use development. Iím still holding out hope that work will get started soon on Niemiís Cottontown Social/NoMa Revival or whatever it is is going to be called. That place is going to make a major impact on this area if it ever comes to fruition.

Yeah.. I guess I look at North Main as a deteriorated commercial corridor so it would be nice to revitalize it back into what it once was.. When I look at downtown, not including the Vista.. It seems to exist in a high density and retail form between Assembly and Sumter St being the boundaries.. Once you cross Sumter going east the fabric changes dramatically especially by the time you get to Marion St..There it transitions into an area historic homes/structures that have been converted into offices... There may even be a historic district in this area that may make redevelopment problematic in some forms..There are development opportunities for sure along Sumter Street especially on the westside between Gervais and Elmwood. Several surface lots that could round out Main St nicely if infilled

Marion reminds me a bit of Fourth Ward in Charlotte. That area could handle something like J. Alexander's, which is in a converted Victorian style home.

Well that's what we're seeing, specifically with midrises. Land prices are too high for lowrise development to predominate within the urban core.

It's known as the Robert Mills Historic District, the Landmark District, and Columbia Historic District II:

https://www.historiccolumbia.org/eve...-district-east
https://www.columbiasc.net/planning-...icts/landmark/
SCDAH
http://historicrichlandcountysc.com/...s=HistDistrict

I think some concessions could be made for certain blocks where new construction wouldn't threaten historic properties. Even so, there are enough vacant lots and buildings that can be razed for new, higher-use development within the bounds of the CBD, and within the Vista as well, to fully flesh out the CBD.

It's being turned into a Hall's Chophouse.
