You guys are talking like this is a done deal. Where is the confirmation or source of this? This picture was originally posted over on another forum by another person.

I do kind of miss the DT of 15 years ago. Sometimes with the crowds of people on the sidewalks I feel like I'm at Disney World or some other obnoxiously crowded place sometimes.

Because I know this developer. He generally follows through on stuff. He is currently building a nice development off of 385 in the Mauldin area. It's going to be impressive.

I'm with you. To me this looks more like a conceptual or theoretical rendering; ie, what COULD be built, not necessarily what is planned or ready to go. While I understand that Hughes is a big time, developer with an excellent track record, this seems so out of left field. Where is the supporting documentation, official announcement, project details, etc?

Vistatiger,


I started working on Main st in 1993.Back then the hookers still came out at sundown toward the west end.I've seen most of the process.I can tell you for damn sure that your lament is exactly what developers and commercial bankers want to hear!

Not a fan of that design at all, but riding through Columbia earlier I was asking myself "will anything ever top that building from the 80's?..." The Capital Center in Columbia is the 2nd oldest "tallest building" in the southeast, beating Arkansas' tallest by a year. The tallest in GA and NC were both built in 1992, which is technically old too, but they're also much, much taller.

Not a done deal but not dead either. Basically still in the study phase. From GVL Today:

Hughes Investments
The real estate developer (Hughes Investments) let us know that the 33-story downtown high-rise design we featured in a News Note yesterday is still fully conceptual.

“Hughes Investments has never failed to construct what we have announced. We will only announce projects that we are fully committed to completing, not studies that are still under consideration. We appreciate when quality architects present us with interesting and exciting concepts such as this – these are compelling surveys of what could happen,” they said.

I thought the Margate Tower in Myrtle Beach was 29 floors built around 2005.That has to be right up near the top of the list for SC.
