We are relocating from the Metro Detroit Area. My husband will have to drive to Columbia 1 sometimes 2 days a week. He doesn't like long commutes but he may not have a choice if I end up with a job in downtown Charlotte. Realistically how long will his drive be to downtown Columbia if we live in Rock Hill? Also, can anyone recommend apartments or townhomes for rent that are fairly new? We are moving in the middle of May and we are not looking to buy until we get a feel for the community.

Thanks!

The drive to downtown Columbia will run roughly an hour, probably a litte more given rush hour traffic--so he should give himself an hour and a half. I'd suggest renting in the Manchester Village area (exit 79 area from I-77). Everything around there is fairly new and convenient to the interstate.

Hi SCBound! Welcome! I agree with Akhenaton re the area around exit 79 being your best bet. It is a great commuter location, a good central location for getting to know the area, and the two full service apt. complexes there are new. Legacy at Manchester Village (on the w. side of 77) and Bradford Park (on the e. side of 77). Best wishes to you on your upcoming move.

I live in Baxter, Fort Mill and worked in Columbia for a little over a year. Everyday I commuted...Very easy, hardly any traffic, took about an hour each way... Just get on 77 and go!
Was not bad until the gas started to creep up... But that is another issue....

Default Two good choices

Hi, I would suggest Baxter Village in Fort Mill, nice area but a little pricey. People are buying the Pulte townhomes and renting them out. Also, Manchester Village is nice and gets you out of Rock Hill with little traffic. They are moderately priced. Hope this helps.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for all of your suggestions. I have contacted Legacy at Manchester Village. I will follow-up with the others. If anyone knows anyone directly that is renting out their townhome, let me know.

I'm living at Legacy at Manchester and can tell you it's nice. There's a great park across the street and a really nice fitness center. Apartments are spacious enough and the community is good, ... Easy access to I-77, plus an express bus stops by the movie theater to get you to work in downtown Charlotte quickly without the hassle of driving. The one negative I will tell you is that management was not very responsive to a few maitenence requests when had when we first moved in. We were in the first building to open, so I'm willing to give them the benefit of a doubt as they seemed pretty busy with construction, etc.

Also, whatever you do, don't pay their 'reservation fee,' it's likely a ripoff as it's obvious there are a number of empty units still there ... We paid one, and then didn't have any neighbors for about 3 months ... Live and learn I guess..
