Dutch Plaza, 800 Dutch Square Boulevard: Summer 2023   6 comments

Posted at 11:44 pm in closing











This office plaza across the street from Dutch Square has been purchased by either The Midlands Housing Alliance or Transitions Homeless Center depending on which news article you read, but the upshot is that, as Columbia Business Report says, it will be converted into housing for distressed individuals:

The first phase of the property’s transformation will occur in the back two buildings. One will be renovated to serve as an adult day care facility for medically fragile clients in need of mental and physical activity. The second building will be renovated to create handicap-accessible rental apartments designed to meet the needs of elderly individuals.

WLTX adds something a bit at odds with what I saw when I drove over:

“These buildings have been vacant, two of them have been vacant for years, so we want to get rid of vacant buildings we want to convert them to a usable space that will benefit the community," Currey stated.

It appeared to me that the front two buildings, at least, still had a good bit of activity.

Construction work is slated to start this month or next and run into the fall.

  3. I have a customer that has offices in the front 2 buildings. The company is a medical collections firm and I wasn't aware they were moving. The back 2 building housed a state agency (I don't remember which one). This is news to me and I'll have to check on Monday because we normally help customers relocate the hardware that we service to their new offices.

  5. @Jonathan, Plato's was in the plaza closer to Broad River Road where Cookesbury used to be.

  6. The DMV office Jonathan mentioned moved from Bush River Mall when it closed ca. 1998. I don’t know what happened to it after that…I’d typically go to the Ballentine office when I needed to go…
