5 years of BullStreet: What’s changed since Columbia’s heralded ballpark opened?

The State Newspaper looked back on how the BullStreet District has changed and grown since 2016, as we approach the five-year anniversary of Fireflies baseball:

“With many years of planning and debate behind it, Columbia’s highly anticipated minor league baseball stadium at the burgeoning BullStreet campus opened with fanfare and rave reviews five years ago this April.

The new home of the Columbia Fireflies minor league baseball team became the centerpiece of what’s expected to be one of the largest forthcoming developments on the East Coast — 181 acres of old buildings and older trees destined to become a bustling business, residential and recreational hub over the next two decades.”
