COLUMBIA — A Virginia-based developer plans to turn the former Jim Moore Cadillac dealership site into 250 high-end apartment units along Columbia's North Main street.
Steven Middleton of Commonwealth Properties will go before the city's development and design board seeking initial approval for the project in Cottontown next month. It is not yet known how much it will cost to construct, according to documents submitted to the city.
The company did not return messages left by The Post and Courier.
The apartment complex will consist of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, architectural drawings show. This includes several so-called "live/work" units that allow tenants to work from home more conveniently. Rental rates for these units are not yet known.
Within the development, there is also a fitness center, a bike shop, a pet spa, and coworking space slated for the ground floor of the three-story, 331,000 square foot building, as well as a 360-car parking garage and rooftop access.
This is not Commonwealth Properties' first development in Columbia.
Other properties include Vista Commons, located just south of Gervais Street in The Vista entertainment district, where rents range from $1,506 per month for a one-bedroom unit to $2,685 for two bedrooms, according to its website.
The company also has properties in North Carolina and Virginia.
