Colliers International completes sale of landmark Novinger Building in West Columbia

Columbia, SC – Colliers International completed the sale of the Novinger Building, which is located at 602 Meeting Street in West Columbia, SC. Colliers’ Mary Winter Teaster represented Novinger Properties, LLC in the sale of the 5,500-square-foot building, originally built by Cathy Novinger in 2006.

Cathy Novinger was a pioneer in South Carolina, rising to become sole female member of executive staff of South Carolina Electric & Gas Co. and SCANA Corp. After leaving SCANA, she balanced building her own business, political activism and community leadership to become one of the most influential leaders in the Midlands area.

“Not only was Cathy a great example to me professionally, but I was also humbled to become a close friend,” said Teaster, Senior Brokerage Associate with Colliers International South Carolina. “Our entire region lost a real champion last year upon her passing. What a great privilege it was to assist in the sale of this landmark property that hosted so many community organizations.”

The sale of the Novinger Building is representative of a growing interest in West Columbia. Recent developments include the new FLOW Townhomes, the Brookland development and the revitalization of State and Meeting Streets.

Teaster is a member of the Colliers office brokerage team and specializes in commercial office properties, assisting owners and users in acquiring or disposition of space. Like Novinger, Teaster is also active in numerous organizations and non-profits in the Columbia area, including CREW Midlands, the Midlands Business Leadership Group, Girl Scouts SC and MIRCI.
