Project Budget

One of Columbia's more popular shopping and entertainment areas, Five Points is strategically located between the University of South Carolina and several popular downtown neighborhoods. This Master Plan effort (known by the Five Points Association Board as "Future Five") follows an ambitious project to provide new streetscaping and infrastructure for Five Points, completed in 2006. Future Five's foundation is a set of goal statements crafted by the Board that embraces the history and the unique village-like character of Five Points, and recognizes the importance of density and scale in relation to pedestrian comfort and market vitality. The revitalization strategies are incentive-based, and ensure that Five Points will be a safe, attractive destination primed for exciting future development and retaining the nostalgic qualities that have delighted Columbians for generations.
