COLUMBIA, S.C. — Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE) has chosen Magnus Development Partners to develop nearly 500 acres of commercial and industrial property surrounding the airport.

The 16 parcels vary in size, configuration, zoning and proximity to CAE -- most have easy access to major thoroughfares such as Platt Springs Road, Edmund Hwy (SC-302), and Old Barnwell Road. Nearby I-26 and I-77 would provide easy access for transportation of goods and services.

Magnus will be working with CAE management to determine the best use for each parcel. Potential development opportunities include industrial, aviation, flex, hotel and commercial developments.
