About Our Building

Desiring to move its corporate offices into Columbia’s thriving Congaree Vista District, LandTech acquired the historic warehouse located at 522 Lady Street in 2008. The structure originally was built to house the operations of Jeff Hunt Machinery in the 1920s and later became widely known as the home of Columbia Cigar and Candy. In 2014, LandTech partnered with McCrory Construction and Lambert Architecture to re-develop the abandoned building into 29,000 square feet of prime office space. Several non-historical additions were demolished and a new stair lobby and third floor executive conference space with a rooftop deck were added to the structure. Much of the wood that was removed from the existing roof that was demolished for new structure to support the new 3rd floor and roof deck was salvaged and used for base boards, ceiling features, and stair treads. The project qualified for multiple historic tax credit programs and was recognized for excellence in preservation/restoration by both the Historic Columbia Foundation and the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation.

In 2014, LandTech acquired the right to operate two franchise offices of Century 21 real estate in the Charelston Market, with offices located in Summerville, SC and Mount Pleasant, SC. The Mount Pleasant office is located in the Park West community developed by LandTech and the Summerville office is located in historic downtown Summerville. In 2015, LandTech expanded this operation with the opening of a third Charleston office in West Ashley. The company has seen consistent growth and now has over 120 agents and ranks as the third largest franchisee in South Carolina based on sales volume.

“LandTech’s turn-around performance at 12 Oaks has been sensational! They researched the market, breathed life back into the community, selected competent and complimentary builders, and are creating successful sales activity – what more could you ask!”
