CanalSide Master Plan

City of Columbia

Completion Date
Study Completed 2002

Project Budget
$5 Million for Infrastructure

The City of Columbia, working with the River Alliance and other community groups, established its vision of the former state prison site as a high-quality, urban, water-focused neighborhood and an integral, active part of Columbia’s community of neighborhoods. The team of designers and development consultants, led by David Ames of Amesco Inc. and Sam Foster of Tower Development, created a master plan, infrastructure design, and development guidelines for this 28 acre site on the historic Congaree River.

The design includes quality open spaces, outdoor amenities, and mixed uses to include shops, office space, restaurants, an Inn, and housing for a diverse population. CanalSide is envisioned as “a neighborhood enriched with compelling and memorable designs, a built environment that inspires residents and makes them better citizens through their associations and pride of community.”
