Homes Urban LLC, a Greenville developer and an affiliate of Davis Property Group LLC, has agreed to acquire the Kline Iron and Steel Company site at the corner of Gervais and Huger streets in Columbia for development, the company announced this week.
The property was home to Kline Iron and Steel Company, makers of broadcast towers, from 1923 to 2004. At the heart of the project, Homes Urban has proposed “apartments targeted toward professional households seeking luxury housing in a vibrant, urban environment,” according to a statement from the company.
Construction is expected to start in the first quarter of 2015 and the proposed development will include more than 280 apartments, a 680-space parking garage, office and retail space, as well as a hotel. The project is also expected to include public access to the State History Museum and EdVenture Children’s Museum as well as additional parking for both venues.
