Scott Taylor Linaberry - Development


Mr. Linaberry became an advisor to the SCHAF Board in 2012 and was elected a Board Member in 2015. 


Scott arrived in Columbia SC in 1990 to attend the University of South where he obtained a   B.A. in Journalism. Mr. Linaberry began working in Five Points as a dishwasher in 1991 and quickly juggled his school schedule with work advancements ascending from dishwasher to bus-boy, cook, kitchen manager, server, bartender then bar manager prior to USC graduation in 1995. He then transferred to a more high volume Five Points bar and became the manager within two years receiving profit share for transforming that business from a half million dollar per year business into 1.5 million dollar per year business.


In 1996 Mr. Linaberry purchased a condominium in the Rosewood neighborhood on Deerwood Street and shortly after recorded his first log book entry: “5/15/1997 from CUB in a Cessna 172 called “Midlands 1” as Mr. Linaberry recalls.   His love for flying had begun and he flew his first solo after 13 hours in August.   Work, professional obligations and low resources quickly became a factor and he would only fly until September of that year before taking many years off.   Later in 1997 he used his shares for the purchase of a business located in the Five Points Theater building on Harden Street and in 2000 purchased half of the Restaurant next door.  


Also in 2000, Scott was elected onto the Five Points Association and continues to sit on the Board of Directors. He was president for two years in 2010-2011 donating his time working with the merchants, neighborhood leaders, City and County council people and City officials/staff to help reduce crime in Five Points during those potentially perilous years by 57%.  


In 2001 Scott became a resident of Shandon when he purchased a home built in 1929 on the corner of Blossom and Holly Streets as he worked days and nights solely managing the bars and restaurants until he had earned enough to buy out his partner in 2006.   Scott quickly purchased the Theater building and restored the Marquee and façade to their original glory while expanding operations at both locations.



In 2007, Scott began planning for a future not involving such late nights and purchased three rental homes on Harden Street picked for their unique 1950’s architecture and unique designs.   Property management/improvement and acquisitions seemed to be a good fit for Scott.   Also, and more importantly, in 2007, Scott was reacquainted with his love of aviation and became a student of Col. Earl Yerrick whom he studied and flew with until he earned his Private Pilot’s license on September 30, 2009.
 
In 2014, Mr. Linaberry developed some previously purchased property on Waccamaw Avenue in Wales Garden  to expand the rental properties and has been dedicated to the design and development of those properties to enhance and improve the neighborhood. Scott is also anxiously waiting for the opportunity to utilize all of the skills and passions he has acquired in the past two decades and applying a love for flying from his CUB hangar with his talents as a property developer/manager and a restaurantor in an effort to breathe new life into the Curtiss-Wright Hangar.
