The Vista and Downtown Center Real Estate
Although not a city with a huge number of condominiums, Columbia does offer some great options for care-free living. For example, the Vista area has sprung to life in recent years, offering unique properties ranging from one-bedroom condominiums to four thousand square foot homes overlooking the city’s skyline. Nearby shops, restaurants, and Columbia’s most active nightlife make for a lively neighborhood. Explore Renaissance Plaza, the Lofts at Printer’s Square, and Parkside, among others.
The Downtown Center has options for living on Main Street in condos over storefronts at Capitol Places among others. Main Street is home to Mast General and the well-established Nickelodeon Theatre. The popular weekly open-air market called “Soda City” offers downtown dwellers the opportunity to purchase fresh bread, fruits, vegetables, and gourmet items. Periodic festivals add to the vibrancy of the area. The south end of Main features the SC State House and the University of South Carolina. Adesso, a luxury condominium, is located at the south end of Main Street. To the east are high-rise units at the Heritage as well as Gibbes Corut , located at the edge of campus on University Hill.
In addition, nearer to USC’s flagship campus, Adesso offers upscale amenities and concierge services. The property features a beautiful pool and grilling deck for residents, just a short stroll from the State House or campus. Sprinkled throughout the downtown area, you will find patio homes and townhouses that require minimal upkeep and offer very convenient living at a reasonable price.
