Years ago, when gas prices were lower and life was slower, people wanted to get out of the city and move into the suburbs. Now, thousands have returned to downtown Columbia and the Vista to live closer to shopping, businesses, restaurants, and entertainment.

With the conversion of the Historic Confederate Printing Plant to a Publix grocery store in 2002, the final element was in place. “If you build it they will come.” And come they have. Numerous condo, apartment, and single family developments are changing the face of downtown Columbia. The Estates on Gervais are an ingredient in that change. They are located in the very heart of the Vista within walking distance of the Congaree Riverwalk, fine dining, shopping, business, entertainment, art galleries, museums, the Capitol Building, and downtown.

Featuring seven exceptional townhomes designed with old-world charm, the Estates on Gervais will take its place in history as a truly unique living experience.

There’s nothing quite like them in Columbia – the Estates on Gervais were developed for the most discerning individual. For more information about this fascinating opportunity and to see if one of the homes fits your needs, take a look around or please contact us.

Greenville-based Grill Marks restaurant opened there last month and Wired Goat Cafe and Wine Shop and Newk’s Eatery are scheduled to open in mid-October, Garvin said. A microbrewery, Twisted Spur, is scheduled to open in early December. The remaining square footage will most likely be office space, Garvin said, but a fitness center has also looked at locating there.
