While Columbia Mall is no longer the premiere mall in Columbia you can hardly say "a lot of businesses have moved" when the mall is over 90% leased. Other than the shopping center behind Columbia Mall, the old Decker Mall and the restaurants across the street from there, I really don't see that many businesses having moved. That area isn't what it used to be, but it isn't that bad.

So (im not saying i will) but if i moved into the greenbrier apartments would I be generally safe from things like shootings? Im not one of those people to go looking for trouble so I just want to know if I would be safe.

If there were nice apartments in the Sand Hills area then I would be happy with that. If they were the price range of under 700.

What about the Arbors at Windsor Lake or the Fairways?

Arbors at Windor Lake are nice. Quiet. That would be a good move.

You asked what made Gable Hill bad. Well for one, the lose a lot of tenants because they do not like to make repairs. Of course, they are trying to make money so they have to be more lenient on who they allow to move in now.

Columbia Mall is a shining example. All of the businesses have moved to either Columbiana or Sand Hills. The apartments in that area are some of the lower priced in the Columbia area and they are abundant. If you go up Trenholm road toward Forest Acres they are a little more expensive and somewhat safer. 20 years ago the apartments in that area had problems, now they are more prevelant. There are a couple of gated communities that are more expensive but probably worth it if you really want to live in the Dentsville area.

These are not the things most people want to hear, but they are the reality.
Well said, I agree.
