September 2023: What’s Going Up?

Tenth and Broadway in Columbia, MO

Downtown’s skyscape continues to be dominated by the cranes and equipment hovering over the Tenth and Broadway Apartments, a $7.8 million, six-story mixed use building that is replacing the former U.S. Bank building at 1001 E. Broadway.

The new structure will have retail space on the first floor and five floors of apartments above it. The property is owned by Discovery Development LLC. Construction is under the direction of Central States Construction. The building will also have covered parking and 65 one-bedroom apartments.

A commercial multi-family building permit for the 53,118-square-foot project was issued in October 2022. The old U.S. Bank building was demolished last fall to make way for the new structure. The city’s planning department listed the project as 69 percent completed as of Aug. 7.

Looking at the overall building permit picture, the city issued 223 permits in July with a valuation of $12,698,032. The bulk of the permits were for reroofing projects (180 permits with a valuation of $4.69 million). There were 17 single-family residential construction permits issued with a valuation of $6.17 million. That compares to 14 single-family residential construction permits issued in June (a valuation of $7.68 million) and 14 such permits issued in July 2022 at a valuation of $4.78 million.

Other major projects already receiving permits and/or under construction include:
