The Edge at USC is a 305-unit, 623 bed, multi-family and student housing project located at Assembly St. and Washington St. in Columbia, SC.

The project location sits at the crossroads of main street / CBD and the Vista, a dining and entertainment district featuring opportunities ranging from national to local restaurants and shops. This historic district immediately north of the university is rapidly becoming the center of nightlife for students and young professionals. School, amenities, and employment are all within easy walking distance of the site.
Columbia is the capitol of the state of South Carolina, as well as home to its flagship public university, The University of South Carolina, a member of the SEC. With over 33,000 students and growing, the #1 ranked graduate and undergraduate school of international business leads the long list of academic opportunities attracting students from all over the country. The student housing market has seen rapid growth, particularly in pedestrian properties. The HUB, an approximately 800 bed adaptive reuse high-rise sits two blocks east (in the CBD) and has enjoyed near 100% occupancy and the highest rents in the market since opening. Other garden-style developments in the west-campus area have enjoyed similar success.
