Here’s a preview of the soon-to-be-completed renovation of the second floor dining space at UofSC’s Russell House. New terrazzo flooring, abstract ceiling fins, curvilinear soffits, and patterned and textured tile make this old space feel brand new again. Thanks to our project partners at Hood Construction for last Friday’s tour. Go Gamecocks!

Join us August 17th for a behind the scenes tour of our ongoing redevelopment project at 2901 Rosewood Drive with Historic Columbia, Cason Development Group, and Boyer Commercial Construction.⁠

This project adapts the church sanctuary and education building for new use as apartments. The original church building retains many of its distinctive elements, including the steeple, stained glass windows, light fixtures, barrel vaulted ceilings, and terrazzo flooring and east stair treads in the vestibule.⁠

Across Sloan Street, the former church gym and kitchen building is being transformed into a single-story retail attraction. A new two-story mixed-use building incorporates elements of both the Rosewood Church building across Sloan Street and the renovated one-story building next door. Shell space on the ground floor anticipates future retail and hospitality tenants.⁠

Coming soon: a Champions Plaza for Clemson Soccer. This new outdoor space adjacent to the Soccer Operations Complex - another GDG project - will include an 18' fire pit that players and coaches can enjoy throughout the year, and where recruits and their families can gather with the team at special events. Clemson orange glass will fill the center of the custom charcoal gray colored concrete walls. A matching concrete honor wall and pedestals will celebrate the individual and team achievements of Clemson’s Men’s and Women’s Soccer programs.⁠

Congratulations to our dear friend and inspiration Ms. Jean Timbes (affectionately known to us as Mama Jean), among this year’s recipients of the Governor's Order of the Palmetto! The highest civilian honor awarded by the Governor of South Carolina, the Order of the Palmetto is awarded to South Carolinians who demonstrate extraordinary lifetime achievement, service, and contributions of national or statewide significance.

Mama Jean received the Order of the Palmetto in recognition of her long service to the state first as a high school math teacher, a CCU Adjunct Faculty member, a SC Department of Education Math Teacher Specialist serving districts in need, a Board member for the Waccamaw Council of Governments, a local business and property owner, and as a 19-year member of Conway's City Council. Mama Jean is also mother to GDG Principal Mark and his brother Michael of TKT Attorneys in Charleston.

Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition, Mama Jean!
