COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The North Main Street corridor of Columbia is about to see a major boost in development, Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin and fellow city council members detailed in a news conference Thursday.

Benjamin and council announced what's being called Azurest at Heritage Creek, a commercial, residential, and retail space on Mason Road.

"It's North Columbia's time," Benjamin said.

That development is set to turn 80 acres of undeveloped land into a new development.

"We're building on a great legacy and building an even greater future for the people that live in North Columbia," Benjamin said. "The best is yet to come."
