CANAL FRONT/COBLE PLAZA
Coble Plaza is an open-air terrace which overlooks the city’s canal and faces the Congaree River and the Gervais Street bridge. Built for $5.1 million, the plaza features an amphitheater and a boardwalk.
The plaza, named for Columbia’s mayor from 1990 to 2010, Bob Coble, is part of the Three Rivers Greenway, the linear park that will eventually connect downtown Columbia with the upper Saluda River near the Lake Murray dam. People can walk south from Coble Plaza and go under the Gervais Street bridge as part of the recent construction.
GWA provided electrical engineering services including power distribution, interior, exterior and boardwalk lighting, communications infrastructure, emergency call phones, grounding and special event power.
