Olympia Apartments Receives Approval


A nearly 200-unit apartment complex in Olympia received a thumbs-up from the Columbia Planning Commission on Monday, paving the way for yet another residential development in what is shaping up to be a downtown rental housing boom.

PMC Property Group – a Philadelphia developer that renovated the Olympia and Granby Mills about a decade ago – received site plan approval for the complex. The project will be built on about six acres of property in front of Granby Mill and include 6,500 square feet of retail space.

The approval was made despite concerns that the project doesn’t meet the city’s parking requirements and exceeds height limitations. The developers will have to go before the city Board of Zoning Appeals to receive variances on those matters.
