Kline Site in Columbia’s Vista to be Developed


A Greenville developer plans to build more than 280 apartments, plus retail and office space on the former location of Kline Iron & Steel Co. in downtown Columbia. The development “will approach $100 million or more,” according to the developer, Homes Urban LLC, which added construction could begin as early as first-quarter 2015.

The 6.7-acre site at the corner of Gervais and Huger streets is adjacent the city’s Congaree Vista neighborhood where some $500 million in public and private projects, ranging from student housing to hotels and restaurants, are underway.

It’s also along the gateway to downtown destinations such as the S.C. State Museum, EdVenture Children’s Museum, the Three Rivers Greenway and the University of South Carolina baseball stadium.

“We are excited to have Homes Urban as our partner on this project,” said Jerry Kline, former president of Kline Iron & Steel Co. “The property has been in our family for 91 years and we know that it is being entrusted to the right people who will do great things for the surrounding community.”
