“We are rebranding The Whitney to 700 Woodrow to reflect the fact that residents will be able to extend their quality of life beyond their home,” said Matt Mundy, an associate of Estates Management Company that will manage the development.“It is an alluring, pedestrian-friendly property. Residents will be within walking distance of downtown Columbia’s premier shopping and dining district. We are excited about the opportunity to develop a community that we believe will enhance the lives of our residents, the local economy and the surrounding neighborhoods.”
Located at the corner of Woodrow and Devine Streets, 700 Woodrow, which is seven stories, is situated in one of the most sought after, upscale neighborhoods in Columbia. The 75-unit apartment community will feature 14 one-bedroom, one-bath homes and 61 two-bedroom, two-bath homes. Each unit will include nine-foot ceilings, large picture windows and a private balcony to enjoy views of downtown and beautiful Columbia sunsets. All residences will be renovated to include gourmet kitchens with stainless steel – energy star appliances, built-in microwaves, tiled kitchen backsplashes and granite countertops with dine-in casual bar tops and wood cabinetry with decorative hardware. Living areas will also have designer lighting including ceiling fans; simulated hardwood flooring; brushed nickel faucets, curved shower rods and ceramic tile in bathrooms; oversized mud/laundry rooms with washer/dryer connections and linen closets and wiring for cable and Internet access.
The upgraded apartments will include a concierge desk that will be staffed with a full-time employee and a contemporary club that will include a Social Lounge with coffee bar and a gathering area with televisions and comfortable seating. Residents will also have access to an outdoor entertainment area featuring garden/yard games, abundant seating, a dining area and gas grill. Parking will be available in front of and around the building.
“Young and mature professionals seeking an eclectic, urban living experience will be attracted to 700 Woodrow,” Mundy said.“They will be able to walk or ride their bikes to local boutique retailers and places like Devine Foods, Cantina 76, Burger Tavern 77, Half-Moon Outfitters, Britton’s, and Earth Fare. Plus they will only be a mile away from great places like Whole Foods, Ulta, Charleston Cooks!, Taziki’s, and Basil Thai Restaurant.”
Located minutes from downtown Columbia, The Vista, Five Points, Cross Hill and Garner’s Ferry, 700 Woodrow is centrally located to the interstate corridors of I-77 and I-26, which have access to I-20.
Originally, The Whitney was built in the early 1980s as a condominium tower. When the tax laws on condo ownership changed in 1986, The Whitney was converted to an all-suite hotel and residence inn.
