  1. Annexations

    My take on Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg is that annexation is not high on his priority list but time will tell. There are several parcels up for annexation on tonight's city council agenda. There's also a 45 acre annexation in the West Ashley area that is being fought by many residents over density concerns and that the property is historic and should be preserved from development.
  2. I walked it for the first time this past week. Really awesome project and no doubt it will be crowded come this spring.
  3. Manchester Development

    This is somewhat old news as it happened a few weeks ago, but Urban Farmhouse (1200 Semmes Ave) has closed. With all the apartments and other new housing nearby, this location should spring back soon with a coffee shop.
  4. Construction is almost completed, expect tenants to be moving-in starting in July.

    The Belle Summitt Apartment building construction is going very, very slow. Sign out front says it will be open summer/fall. At the rate they're going, it will be summer/fall 2015.

    Thanks. Hoping for something alittle more exciting though.

    Does anyone have any info on what is planned for the 200 block (I think) of southside of Cowardin? Land is cleared and construction trailer in place but no signs up.

    800 Semmes Ave: Construction crane being assembled right now.

    Just took a walk over to the site. Looks like base of crane tower going into place.

    Residents are starting to move into the new 1200 Semmes Ave apartment building although construction is not completed. This is an attractive building with rooftop amenities such as a dog walk. Maybe I'm being too optimistic but it looks like there could be some retail spaces facing Semmes Ave (coffee and/or sandwich shop, please!). http://www.1200semmes.com/

    Article in the Charleston Business Journal today discussing the Horizon Project master plan. Exciting to see this project getting underway later this year with Phase Zero (parking garage)and Phase 1 scheduled to begin summer of 2015. http://www.charlestonbusiness.com/news/51450-horizon-district-preliminary-master-plans-revealed

    This building has been demolished now. Still not sure if there are any plans for the site but still hoping it's not going to be a surface parking lot.

    Update on the Horizon Project in today's Post & Courier: http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20140514/PC16/140519611/1177/horizon-redevelopment-project-could-begin-this-fall First phase is to construct a parking garage clearing the path for subsequent phases.

    I'm not sure about a webcam, but I walked over to the construction site yesterday. Crews were drilling steel pilings.
