New development adds two businesses to Devine Street.
Green at Devine District, a Columbia Estates & Companies project, will include the first Midlands location of Greenville-based sandwich shop Sully’s Steamers and the third Columbia location of local bakery Ally & Eloise Bakeshop.
“Devine Street is Columbia’s premier boutique shopping district as it is nestled between three of Columbia’s oldest residential neighborhoods and hosts a unique mix of shopping, dining, office and living options,” Matt Mundy of Estates & Companies, developer of luxury condominiums Devine District, Trolley and 700 Woodrow, said in a news release. “I am honored to be able to call this community home while attracting more local businesses to carry on its legacy.”
The Green, which will be located at 2835 Devine St., will also provide an outdoor dining and entertainment area, according to the release. Renderings by McKenzie Architecture show the bakery and adjoining sandwich shop facing Devine Street.
“It’s important to design communities that bring people together through trails, gathering places, amenities, and more, to encourage spontaneous encounters, to create foundations for relationships among those who live, work, and play in the greater community,” Mundy said. “These relationships help foster a greater connection to build shared interests and find common values, adding to the wonderful atmosphere of Devine Street.”
Ally & Eloise owner Aleka Selig opened her first bakery on Forest Drive in April 2012 and her second on Main Street in 2016.
“We are so grateful for our amazing customers who have supported us for 10 years here in Columbia,” Selig said. “We’re beyond excited to continue serving them at our Forest Drive location, while sharing our sweet treats and smiles with even more wonderful people at our new Devine Street bakery.” Devine Street’s shops and restaurants all encompass everything we love about local businesses in Columbia. We can’t wait to add to that energy and give people a beautiful space where they can indulge and enjoy our delicious desserts.”
According to Ally & Eloise’s website, the Forest Acres location is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The High Street location is listed as open 11am to 2pm Tuesday to Friday.
Sully’s Steamers, owned by Michael and Brittany Stuckey of Southern Way Catering, is originally from Greenville and also has locations in Spartanburg, Clemson and Brevard, North Carolina. Offers a variety of steamed bagel sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“We had the pleasure of eating at Sully’s downtown Greenville a few years ago and fell in love with the food and the concept,” said Michael Stuckey. “The staff was friendly, the service was quick, and the food was delicious. We have both been in the hospitality industry for many years and wanted to open a restaurant here in Colombia. When we started talking with Robert Sullivan, the franchisor, our business values and practice aligned and we knew we wanted to be part of the Sully team.”
Columbia commercial real estate firm Wilson Kibler provided brokerage for Sully’s Steamers.
“When we started looking for the perfect location for Sully’s first location in the Midlands, we knew from the start that Devine Street was the place to be,” said Boo Mocca, Senior Associate at Wilson Kibler. “Matt Mundy and the Estates team have a stellar reputation for development and we are thrilled to welcome Sully to The Green on Devine District.”
