Shovels Turning on Columbia’s Main Street

By
– The State

After years of anticipation, construction is finally beginning on two high-profile projects on Main Street.

Construction starts Monday on The Nickelodeon Theatre, the state’s only nonprofit art house film theater, and started a couple of weeks ago at the neighboring Mast General Store, an eclectic country store and outdoor outfitter.

“There are a lot of people in hard hats on Main Street right now,” said Matt Kennell, president of the City Center Partnership, which promotes economic development in the downtown area. “We’re glad to see that.”

Construction at the old Fox Theatre at 1607 Main St. will take more than a year with The Nick’s opening night set for sometime in late 2011 or early 2012.
