Kroger for Columbia’s Assembly Street


The developer of Columbia’s historic Capital City Stadium is now looking to land a Kroger grocery store in a proposal that has some neighborhood advocates feeling “heartened” over compromises at the site.

A preliminary plan also shows apartments and a below-ground parking garage along Assembly Street, plus shops and restaurants designed to appeal to college students and others living nearby.

Importantly to community leaders who have been brought in on the discussions, the developer has agreed to pay for flood-reduction features and a trail on the property that eventually would help connect Five Points to the Congaree River near the historic Granby textile mill.

“I think we’ve got a plan now that we’re all happy with and willing to go forward with,” said Matt Sasser, the Atlanta developer with Bright-Meyers 2001 LLC.
