Columbia CBD Recovering from SCANA’s Exit


Columbia appears to be recovering from the body blow it suffered three years ago when SCANA Corp. moved its headquarters and some 900 employees across the Congaree River to Cayce.

“We’re 100 shy of jobs lost since SCANA left town, and that’s a good thing,” Matt Kennell, president and CEO of City Center Partnership Inc., said during a recent work session of the Columbia City Council.

Downtown’s comeback didn’t happen all at once with a new company moving hundreds of workers into a glass-and-steel tower. Instead, it has come in increments of a handful to a dozen workers joining law firms, health care companies, insurance firms, information technology businesses and banks.
