    Innovista

    I guess this is the best place for this since the majority of it deals with the "Innovista" area, but USC has a draft update of their Master Plan. The area between Assembly and the river is definately the focal point for expanding the campus.

    Economic developments in the Charleston metro area

    Read it again... that is not what it said. It said the average wage for those hired locally was $14/hour and they were importing higher payed contract workers (such as my next door neighbor) because there are not enough qualified workers in the area. They regularly advertise jobs in the $100-130K dollar range for engineers. OH and by the way....CHARLESTON WAS SELECTED FOR THE NEW BOEING PLANT!!! http://view.exacttarget.com/?j=fe8a1d7971660d7e74&m=fef0177672620d&ls=fe0d117970620d7a7d1c79&l=fef4137271620c&s=fe60107975620c7c7416&jb=ffcf14&ju=fe621c73726607797714

    How does it suck for employees? The contract workers are working in a "right to work" state also. I think it speaks more to the lack of qualified applicants locally.

    Watson Hill neighborhood development

    http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2009/ju...hill_land85972/ I'm surprised nobody posted this already. Mead Westvaco is buying this property back. This move will facilitate the completion of the Glenn McConnell Parkway and they plan to incorporate Watson Hill into the much larger East Edisto plan.

    Charleston Off-Topic

    1. Isle of Palms is probably the more popular beach, but many prefer the more laid back vibe at Folly Beach. 2. Vickery's on Shem Creek, Hymans Downtown, or A.W. Shucks are among the myriad of choices for seafood. For BBQ check out Bessingers in West Ashley. 3. Typical tourist things are visits to the Battery, King Street, Carriage Rides, visiting one of the Plantations all are interesting in their own right. 4. Most of the national chains will be in that price range. For local establishments it may be a little (or alot) more, but you can probably make a deal depending on the timing of your trip.

    This rendering/project is done with Autodesk Revit Architecture. Its a Building Information Modeling (BIM) program used to produce architectural and engineering drawings.

    ^ I agree with Spartan on that. Both Richland and Lexington Counties would have to buy in to make a boundary effective. Although I am uneasy about the unanticpated consequences of growth boundaries.

    Historic Congaree Vista Developments

    yes, but it is up to to the municipalities to demand uniqueness. MOST (not all) owners will take the path of least resistance.

    Historic Congaree Vista Developments

    ^ that is very common practice and it is usually not the decision of the architect. The hotel chains have prototypical designs (much like restaurant chains). Deviations from those designs have to be submitted for approval. An owner who is looking to build something fast and obtain quick approval would likely not deviate far from the propotypical designs. Usually, its the local reviewing authority that "encourages" more unique designs.

    Bull Street Common

    I would expect a master developer would come in, install infrastructure develop the master plan and then sell the project off by parcels or projects. So in reality there could be dozens of developers

    South Carolina College Sports

    I agree with that 100%. The problem is the conference is so tough. I often point to last recruiting class the year before last. According to many "experts" USC class ranked #5 in the country, but was still #4 in the SEC and #3 in the SEC East.
