Resource Financial Services Inc. has acquired 708 Lady St., the former location of Carolina Ale House, to be redeveloped into its new headquarters.
Bruce Harper, managing partner of Trinity Partners, represented the Columbia-based mortgage lender in the $1.85 million transaction. The property’s front building was subdivided from the rear building for the redevelopment, expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2022.
“We are excited to play a role in the continued growth and success of Resource Financial Services and to have the opportunity to transform a former restaurant into a first-class office space with a rooftop venue overlooking Columbia’s skyline,” Harper said in a news release from Trinity Partners.
Resource Financial will retain its former Devine Street headquarters for future expansion, according to the release.
“We serve borrowers in 12 states, but Columbia has always been our home base,” Wade Douroux, president and CEO of Resource Financial Services, said. “We’ve loved our quiet building on Devine Street, but with the rapid growth we’ve seen over the past six years, we needed something much larger. Moving into Columbia’s Historic Vista, right in the heart of things, is a perfect match for our fast-paced company.”
