CRG and Landmark Properties have broken ground on The Standard at Columbia, a 17-story, 678-bed housing tower in Columbia, S.C. The urban-infill, pedestrian-oriented property is located on the corner of Washington and Assembly Streets in downtown Columbia, blocks away from the University of South Carolina.
The Standard at Columbia will include 247 fully-furnished units with 678 beds and an amenity package that includes a podium-level rooftop pool, a hot tub, grilling stations, a jumbotron television, a resort-equipped fitness and wellness center, a golf simulator, a game-day lounge, and group and private study lounge space.
The project will offer a mix of studio, one-, two-, three-, four-, and five-bedroom apartments spread across nearly 443,000 sf. “After many years of competing with Landmark for the best sites in the best university towns, it was fun to be able to put together a synergistic partnership that brings our two teams together to create a signature property for the students in Columbia,” said J.J. Smith, Managing Partner of CRG, in a release. “The Standard will create an unmatched experience for students in downtown Columbia.”
The project is slated for completion in 2023.
