Plans for Columbia’s Kline Steel Site Released


kline steelA group of Greenville-based developers unveiled the initial plans for a potential mixed-use development at the tip of the Vista that would offer housing and store space near the State Museum.

The 6.5-acre vacant lot sits at the corner of Huger and Gervais streets and was site of the former Kline Iron and Steel. That company was founded in 1923 and primarily was known for building broadcast towers.

Columbia’s Design Development Review Commission reviewed initial plans that include multi-building property with a mix of apartments, townhomes and a large number of restaurant spaces.

Developer Russ Davis Jr. of Homes Urban Property Co. said up to 306 apartments will be available. A national brand hotel will be situated at the corner of Gervais and Huger streets, though Davis could not reveal which hotel.

The plan calls for an extension of Lady Street into the property and the addition of a new road off the side of Gervais Street that is tentatively called Kline Drive.
