Wow..I liked Macs...but atleast the storefront wont be vacant and he will be using the upperfloors which hopefully will start a continuing trend to operate on second floor and above for many of the city's older downtown buildings...

I'd say Mast started the trend with apartments on the upper floors. You can throw the Nick in too.

There have been apartments over store fronts for years - long before Mast. The Nickelodeon will open a 2nd screen on their upper floors after fundraising is complete.

Yeah, Capitol Places in particular really kicked off the trend, but Mast and the Nick are the most notable examples in this current phase of Main's revitalization.

You and matt are right.. but Barry's (Mac's) operation is commercial.. or even light industrial in food production which is usually not in a downtown/commercial district unless its a walk in sit down restaurant and even less common on the upper story of a building.. Since they dont require walk in traffic..that is an ideal place for them.. I wonder if that type of use for vacant upper story of buildings will catch on though I dont believe Columbia has many vacant second floors and up above many of its older commercial buildings
