The Standard at Columbia

1 2 3 4 / 4

The Standard at Columbia will be a 17-story student housing tower in Columbia.

When complete in fall 2023, The Standard will include 247 fully-furnished units with 678 beds and an amenity package that boasts a podium-level rooftop pool, hot tub, grilling stations, jumbotron television, resort-equipped fitness and wellness center, golf simulator, game-day lounge, and ample group and private study lounge space. The Standard will create an unmatched experience for students in downtown Columbia.

The Standard at Columbia will offer a mix of studio, one, two, three, four, and five-bedroom apartments across nearly 443,000 square feet. The project will be the only new high-rise in the market, delivering the convenience of being downtown near retail, restaurants and the city’s nightlife while maintaining “roll out of bed” access to campus.

Construction financing for the project was provided by Citizens Bank. CRG’s integrated partner Lamar Johnson Collaborative (LJC) designed the project, while parent company Clayco will serve as the general contractor.
