The hotel set to replace the former library at Marion Square may be on the right track, but other developments planned around the square are in limbo. The Post and Courier reported today that changes at the Rivers building on Meeting Street are on hold, and we just got a press release from Millennium Music stating that they will be staying in the building at King and Calhoun for at least six more years.
“Millennium Music has been told that there is no definitive timetable and that we should expect to operate at this location for the duration of our lease.”
The P&C was reporting as recently as February that the plans were still on to demolish the existing building and replace it with an eight-story structure with condominiums, offices, and ground-floor shops. We’ve put calls in to the building developer, Prime South Group, but have not heard back.
Millennium announced some big plans relating to the happy news of their non-move. They’ll be adding download kiosks, a broader vinyl collection, and a high-end video game arcade. The store also plans to sublet a portion of the store to a “highly prominent national tenant that is leading the current changes in the music industry.” No name was given.
