Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The old Damon's restaurant in the Vista is no more, as that area gets ready for a massive new development.
Crews were out Friday with bulldozers tearing down the building, which is located on Lincoln Street near the Columbia Convention Center.
In its place will be the new University of South Carolina Alumni Center, an over 60,000 square foot building that will serve as a meeting place for businesses as well as personal gatherings.
A groundbreaking for the Alumni Center takes place November 1st. The target date for its completion is May of 2015.
