Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center

While it may take a village to raise a child, in our experience, it takes a city to raise a convention center. 

Nexsen Pruet attorneys were instrumental in constructing the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, as the deal required significant coordination between multiple public and private parties. Three local governments and a school district had a financial stake in the project, and the University of South Carolina was also involved in the land assemblage.

Case Study Columbia Convention Center InlineA team of Nexsen Pruet Columbia attorneys entered the project at the conceptual stage to aid a citizens group obtain funding for the project. Our attorneys worked with all of the stakeholders, and provided comprehensive project services including creating an intergovernmental organization, arranging for extremely favorable tax-free financing, completing a very complex land acquisition, designing innovative construction procedures and assisting with a myriad of contractual matters.

The 2004 grand opening of the Convention Center was the first of many successful events at this 142,500 square foot, $40,000,000 facility.

We were thrilled when the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center welcomed their one-millionth visitor on January 7, 2011, knowing we were part of the team responsible for a facility bringing over 100,000 visitors Center annually since 2005.
