A History of Housing

Photos by Casey Buckman, Whitney Buckner and Sarah Redohl

Within the past few years, southwest Columbia has become a maze of manicured lawns and neat single-family homes. The past decade saw a dramatic boom in subdivision development followed by a lag caused by the housing crisis, which has dramatically changed the landscape of Columbia. In some cases, this somewhat sudden change in the supply and demand of new developments has resulted in what Columbia development Services Manager Patrick Zenner calls “zombie subdivisions,” developments that have been fitted with permits, streets and utilities but then stay stagnant for months or even years at a time. In other cases, developers timed construction perfectly and filled up lots with buyers within a matter of weeks. With the real estate market purportedly on the mend, we take a look at some of Columbia’s most popular housing developments and how they might affect the future setting of our city.
