Columbia, SC – Colliers International assisted Valuant, a financial analysis and consulting firm, in the lease of 2,633 square feet of office space in Capitol Center at 1201 Main Street. Mary Winter Teaster represented Valuant, and Marsha Davis and Allen Wilkerson represented the landlord in the transaction.

“Valuant, as a high-energy startup, needed an office space to mirror their innovative culture. Capitol Center proved to be that match, with great amenities and its proximity to the professional Main Street corridor and the Vista arts and entertainment district,” said Teaster, a Senior Brokerage Associate with Colliers.

According to Colliers’ most recent office market report for Columbia, low vacancies in office space, especially in the downtown’s Central Business District (CBD), leave few large blocks of quality space for office users. While this can be a challenge for larger companies, smaller to midsized companies, including companies like Valuant, can often find high-quality space in buildings like Capitol Center, which benefit from a prime location downtown near the State House, the Vista arts and entertainment district and the rapidly developing Main Street business and retail corridor.

Teaster, Davis and Wilkerson are all members of the office brokerage team in Colliers’ Columbia office.
