I was only vaguely aware of The Cliff Apartments when I was at USC, though apparently they had been open for several years at that point. They, along with the Bates-es were just on a side of campus I never had any reason to go to. Now USC has razed the building as part of a plan for a new "Campus Village".

The State has the story here and here. Apparently students were forced out of these dorms in the middle of the year to save construction costs by not holding off on the work. In the event, they seem to be several months behind schedule tearing this place down, and I expect the pandemic played into it. Bates & Bates West are also on the block for the next phase of the project.

I don't know. To me it seems like the campus area has been vastly overbuilt in the last several years. I just don't see enrolement continuing to grow as it has, especially with the total game-changer of remote classes during this last year. We'll see.

Central Roofing & Contracting / Safety Equipment Sales & Rentals / Wild Bill Grocery Store / The Dog Shack, 230 Huger Street: Fall 2010 (etc)   3 comments

Here's a little 1940s building by the tracks at the start of Huger Street (that's you-gee street for you out-of-towners..), that has been, I'm sure, many more things than this list over the years since it was built.

To be honest, I have to say I can't personally remember any of them. It's a section of street I drive very seldom, and some of the tenants, for instance, a roofer, are pretty invisible until you actually need one. The most recent operation seems to have been The Dog Shack hotdog restaurant, which apparently set up shop in April of 2010, and was definitely open as late as 18 June 2010, when a group of Columbia hotdog aficionadoes visited and gave it a mediocre grade.

While I was taking pictures a train rolled through, backing up traffic on Huger. I imagine working all day in that location would get old pretty quick.
