Columbia to Get More Student Housing


Columbia developer Ben Arnold plans to build a 600-bed student housing complex at the corner of Huger and Blossom streets.

Arnold’s rental apartment plans, which he has named Monarch at USC, will be presented before the city of Columbia’s Design/Development Review Commission at a meeting 4 p.m. July 12 at the Eau Claire Print Building, 3907 Ensor Ave.

The project only requires a single vote of approval from the commission, since the city block bounded by Huger, Blossom, Pulaski and Wheat streets already has the required zoning for the project.

Arnold, president of Arnold Cos., said the project is a joint venture between the Arnold Cos. and Monarch Ventures of Charlotte. “This is going to be the nicest premier project in Columbia,” Arnold said. “My family has held this property for more than 50 years, waiting for the right project for this prime location.”
