This adaptive re-use project includes seven bowling alley lanes and a restaurant in the former Army Navy Store in downtown Columbia. The building facades will be renovated to have heavy decorative wood trim over large picture windows with an entrance that is not recessed back as far as the present configuration.  Large decorative cornices will be added back to the facade to match the historic images found through research.  The proposed layout of the bowling alley includes a restaurant on the ground floor and a large bar with plenty of gaming space.  There will also be a large room in the basement of the Mark’s building for extra dining space or an area that can be reserved for private parties.  A new entrance will be added to the rear portion of the Mark’s building leading to an exterior courtyard with landscaping, outdoor seating and entertainment such as a bocce ball court. There will be a total of five apartments on the second and third floors of the Robinson and Mark’s buildings.  There will also be rear parking with a private entrance to the apartments above through the exterior courtyard. On the second floor of the Robinson building there will be a roof top patio with an entrance to the second floor Robinson apartments.
