I think he was referring to surface lots that service a particular business, not attached parking garages.

There are a bunch of surface lots in this pic. Washington/Assembly X2(Barber Shop and Wig Shop could be bought out), Hampton/Assembly, Gervais/Main X2, Lady/Park, Main inbetween Washington and Hampton 1/4-1/3 of the block. This also does not include anything on Sumter. Not every lot could sustain a highrise, but there are plenty of opportunities for growth.

Other than the Vista, there aren't height restrictions in Columbia, unless you're referring to residential neighborhoods. The Vista is the area bounded by Assembly, Elmwood, the river and Blossom.

Well in that picture the glass buildings have an under ground parking garage so there's a less likely chance of a building going there. The lot in the middle behind the six story building is parking for that building. And lady/park is not the CBD. And if I did not state it I was talking about for highrises and skyscrapers(if the city will ever get one). On Sumter street many of those lots are for the businesses and churches. And I don't see CMRTA/COMET selling there lot since they had plans for a multimodal station before the economy turned.

I would recommend you to the cities page and look at the design guidelines for each area. Taylor and Gervais streets I know don't have height limits for awhile going north but it's far away from many things. And since Columbia Commons is downtown I will include for this argument even though this is the CBD thread but CC has a height limit.

Columbia Common will be mostly a residential neighborhood. There are PLENTY of locations for high-rises to be built in Columbia. I love skyscrapers and want lots of them, but I know there are plenty of places they can be built in Columbia.

Those surface lots adjacent to existing buildings count as developable land. And there are underutilized parcels that can be redeveloped for a higher use. Columbia's CBD is simply nowhere close to full build out.

Actually COMET wants to move their transfer station and have reached out to at least Greyhound for a combination complex.
