COLOMBIA – Lexington Medical Center has acquired two properties for possible future projects, one in Forest Acres and one in Cayce.
The property at 5143 Forest Drive is currently home to Turning Pointe, a dancewear retailer. The building also includes offices for Transition Consulting, an insurance brokerage firm.
This move represents additional growth potential for Lexington Medical in Richland County. He operates several medical practices on the Colombian side of Congaree and opened an LMC Northeast on Killian Road in March 2021.
The 225,000 square foot medical center offers many services, including emergency care, physiotherapy and outpatient surgery.
Lifelong Colombians will remember the Forest Drive location as one of two Columbia locations of Steak and Ale, a national chain of sit-down restaurants.
The Steak and Ale location closed even before the chain went bankrupt in 2008.
The other site acquired by Lexington Medical includes 1107 and 1109 Knox Abbott Drive, not far from the intersection with 12th Street in Cayce.
The 1109 Knox Abbott site contains a small building which currently houses Financial Eagle, a financial planning firm.
Ben Kelly and Patrick Chambers of NAI Columbia handled the sale of the two sites.
Lexington Medical Center has not commented on its plans for the two locations, both of which are on high-traffic streets.
