Columbia, SC  – Cayce, which is just across the Congaree River from downtown Columbia and the University of South Carolina, is experiencing a renaissance of residential construction for students and professionals, and that construction is attracting interest from major retailers. Colliers International’s Rox Pollard and Danny Bonds recently brought Planet Fitness to Parkland Plaza Shopping Center, where it will join Bi-Lo, Ace Hardware, Jewelry Warehouse, AMF Park Lanes and D’s Wings.

With over 1,400 clubs, Planet Fitness has been ranked as one of the largest fitness franchises in the United States. Planet Fitness is known for its affordable $10 per month membership option and the judgement-free environment. This will be the fourth Planet Fitness club to come to the Columbia area. The Cayce location will be open and staffed 24 hours a day and will feature 28,000 square feet of cardio and strength equipment, as well as tanning and free fitness training.

“Parkland Plaza is one of Columbia’s oldest shopping centers. Located at the corner of Knox Abbott Drive and State Street, it offers a prime location in the center of multiple residential complexes, including The Tremont, Riverside and Granby Crossing,” said Pollard, Vice President and Director of the Retail Services Team with Colliers International | South Carolina. “As Cayce’s residential population continues to boom, retailers will continue to look for strategically located shopping centers like Parkland Plaza, which are well established in the community.”

Colliers provides leasing and real estate management services for Parkland Plaza. Pollard and Bonds, a Brokerage Associate, specialize in the sale, leasing and development consultation of retail properties throughout South Carolina.
