COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The first restaurant in the growing BullStreet development is now officially open for business.
Bone-In-Barbeque is located in the historic Ensor building next to Spirit Communications Park.
It's owned and operated by Midlands native and acclaimed chef Scott Hall. Community leaders including Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin and former mayor Bob Coble attended Monday's ribbon cutting.
At completion, the district expects to be full of an engaging mix of local and national shops and restaurants, high-quality entertainment like Fireflies baseball games and concerts, comfortable residences, public art and more.
"The fact that we'll have senior housing, that we'll have townhouses, that we'll have a church that we'll have businesses and non-profits all in one place, surrounded by a gorgeous park and a ball field that brings families together just is tremendous," JoAnn Turnquist, CEO with Central Carolina Community Foundation said earlier this month.
Currently, they are in year five of this 20-year construction project.
One of the newest additions to BullStreet is Bone-In Barbeque, which opened in May and serves as the first restaurant to open at BullStreet.
Over the course of construction, you can expect to see many more restaurants to come along with a new public park on over 20 acres, a new downtown church, two- and three-bedroom townhomes, and a senior living community.
