Property sales popping in West Columbia-Lexington corridor

It seems that property is becoming hotter in the West Columbia-Lexington corridor.

A 1.99-acre parcel of land at Sunset Boulevard and I-26 has sold. It is the former site of a Quincy’s steakhouse restaurant and the building on the property now was also once a Muarice’s Piggie Park Bar-B-Que restaurant.

NAI Avant, announced last week that Piggie Park Enterprises, Inc., had sold the land at 2515 Sunset Blvd in West Columbia. Senior real estate brokers Patrick Chambers and Ben Kelly, were the agents who directed the sale. Happy China Buffet bought the land.

Happy China is currently located in the Westland Square shopping center in the 2200 block of Sunset Boulevard in West Columbia. Happy China plans to construct a new restaurant on the nearly two-acre site. Other than that, no more plans have been announced.

The site of the acreage sold is beside the new West Columbia Starbucks and Salsarita’s. Both were built and opened earlier this year at the high-traffic site next to I-26 and across from, and to the east of, Lexington Medical Center (LMC.)

A 108-room hotel is being built by Residence Inn by Marriott on a side street across from LMC.

Also, NAI Avant announced on Nov. 22, the sale of 1.53 acres of land at 3618 Sunset Boulevard in West Columbia. The lot is located halfway between I-26 and I-20. It is billed as property with excellent visibility and proximity to the major interstates in the Midlands.

The land was purchased by South Carolina Pediatric Alliance for $425,000. South Carolina Pediatric Alliance is a merger of Palmetto Pediatric and Sandhills Pediatric.

The buyers want to bring together pediatric practices in order to be more efficient, reduce costs, and improve care. Both practices will keep and operate under their current names. Each of the individual practices within the South Carolina Pediatric Alliance will be separate “care centers.”

The seller was represented by NAI Avant senior brokers Nick Stomski and Roger Winn.
