Columbia has less surface parking than last year

Key Takeaways

  • New downtown developments are under construction eliminating surface parking lots
  • The University of South Carolina purchased two previously public surface parking lots
  • Garage vacancy rates are higher than two years ago- when offices return to full capacity the garage occupancy rate will likely increase

In addition, new developments throughout Columbia are under construction where surface parking lots were located. Therefore, an already tight parking situation was compounded with the removal of surface parking spots.
