Historically a residential, light industrial, mercantile and transportation district, the Congaree Vista is bounded by the Congaree River to the west and Assembly Street to the east. To its north lies Arsenal Hill, while the Olympia Mill community is its neighbor to the south. This portion of South Carolina’s capital city today blends rehabilitated, historically significant buildings with architecturally sympathetic new construction.
