West Columbia, SC (WLTX) Three area land tracts along with the Motel Six property on Knox Abbott Drive are now owned by Lexington School District Two.

The district sent out a press release to announce the purchase of 3.10 acres that are currently occupied by the Motel 6 at Knox Abbott Drive. The plans are to demolish the motel and build the new Brookland-Cayce High school arena.

In addition to the motel property, the district also purchased three tracts of property along Cougar Drive in West Columbia that is adjacent to property already owned by the district. The three tracts will provide the district with an additional 12.36 acres. This along with the 4.37 acres that are already owned by the district will provide the 16.73 acres needed to build a new elementary school. The proposed elementary school will be built to consolidate Brookland-Cayce Grammar school No.1 and Pineview Elementary school.
