Downtown Columbia has the metro's lowest vacancy rate for retail space. While this report's definition of downtown includes more than the CBD, the CBD's recent success has no doubt helped lead to the tight space situation in the downtown submarket.

Main Street is featured in Southern Living magazine's December issue:

"The next great neighborhood"
"The South Carolina capital has come alive with this must-visit corridor."

No. City Center Partnership shared it on their Facebook page. I checked B&N, but the December issue isn't there yet.

A friend of mine was at a meeting with the team owner who wants to bring minor league ball to Columbia. The guy is Jason Freier, CEO of "Hardball Capital" They own the Savannah Sand Gnats & The Fort Wayne, IN Tin Caps, and used to own another minor league team that he sold to the Red Sox. Maybe some other properties too. The plan is similar to what they put together in Ft. Wayne. Stadium that might seat 8,500 (including berm seats, temp seats, standing room) surrounded by retail, hotel, commercial & mixed use buildings. (like bottom floor retail, second and third floors office, top floors residential). City would front the construction of the stadium, and it would be an anchor for the other developments in the area. Anyway there will likely be a news story about this over the weekend or Monday.

Soda City Farmer's Market is rehabbing the Marriott gift shop space into The Nest, a store for local people to sell their handmade wares and edible products.

Anything new with this development?

It seems that would be the best fit there with Gnats not only being a Sally team putting us back in the league with Charleston and Greenville Asheville and Augusta, but that they are also a Mets affiliate as was the Bombers and the Mets, plus considering Savannah's population, it seems this would be a great move. Heck I would even bring back the Bombers name, that is still a popular brand around the city even though they have been gone for many years.

Shouldn't the minor league stuff be in the Bull Street thread? I don't think they can play baseball in the CBD.
