  1. That would be the next phase of Ingleside....http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/index.php/topic/48196-ingleside-tract-project/

    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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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 ti
  6. thats actually the front of a lawyers office...and I'm sure he will complain.
  7. This rendering/project is done with Autodesk Revit Architecture. Its a Building Information Modeling (BIM) program used to produce architectural and engineering drawings.
  8. yes, but it is up to to the municipalities to demand uniqueness. MOST (not all) owners will take the path of least resistance.
  9. ^ 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.
  10. 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
  11. Thats the start of the development of what is know as the Weber site. Weber, and German auto parts (and grill) maker planned a facility there many years ago, but has since decided to sell it off and develop it. In all its about 1200 acres and is supposed to be mixed use with office, retail, single and multi- family housing, etc. The units CF Evans (Contractor) are building are multi-family units. Not sure about the number of units in this phase. This project has been talked about for years (at least 6) and they are finally doing something.
  12. Looks like is from the Palmetto Richland complex somehwere.
  13. nothing is moving specific to this project, but as usual, Clements words/actions have spurred other developments in the area. A 5 story condo/retail development is planned for the corner of King and Wolf. There is also a "workforce housing" project (4 stories w/ garage) planned for Meeting and Reid. There was an article in the Post and Courier not too long ago above all the activity on Upper King. most of that activitiy has been spurred by the completion of the streetscpaing and anticipation of the Midtown project.
