The 2222 Main View Apartments on the North Main corridor received site plan approval on Thursday at the City of Columbia planning meeting. Set for the former Jim Moore Cadillac dealership site, the luxury apartment complex spans approximately 5.3 acres just north of downtown.

Developed by Commonwealth Properties LLC, the multifamily project includes a 331,306 sqft building with 250 mixed units:

  • 134 one-bed
  • 108 two-bed
  • Four three-bed
  • Four live-work spaces

It will also offer 407 off-street parking spots, combining 360 garage and 47 surface spaces.

Steve Middleton of Commonwealth Development described the apartments as “purely luxury housing” to The Post and Courier when the project was first announced. The apartments include:

  • Two courtyards
  • Pool with a heated swim spa
  • Sundeck
  • Outdoor kitchen
  • Recreational area for yoga and yard games
  • 12,000 sqft of space for a fitness center, pet spa, and rooftop dog park
  • Car care center with vacuum

A full traffic study is included in the latest proposal. The plan includes “full-movement driveways” on both Main and Sumter Streets to streamline access to the apartments. These driveways allow vehicles to turn left or right when entering or exiting, providing flexible access.

Additional improvements — like a two-way left-turn lane on Main Street and lane re-striping at nearby intersections — are designed to manage increased traffic and overall flow.

Who are these apartments intended for?

The new apartments will target recent graduates, professionals, and empty nesters looking for urban living near the Main Street District. Suitable for residents 21 and older, these apartments aren’t intended for undergraduate students.

This apartment complex joins several others in the area, including the Benton Crossing on River Drive, 300 market-rate apartments near River Drive and Sunset Boulevard, and several projects complete or under construction in the nearby BullStreet District.
