  1. IAAM construction site including 2 cams: https://www.buildingiaam.com/
  2. I was not familiar with this website. I went to check my hometown population and they didn't have the city in the correct county. Well at least not the county where the city was founded and has the highest population. Heck, Richmond is not that far away from passing Buffalo NY.
  3. I noticed yesterday that Chase Bank is opening a brick-and-mortar branch at the corner of Staples Mill and Parham Rd. I didn't know Chase was moving into the Richmond market.
  4. Proposed 300 space parking garage @ St. Phillips and Morris Streets replacing an existing 75 space surface lot: https://www.live5news.com/2020/03/05/construction-new-charleston-parking-garage-could-begin-by-years-end/ I hate to see a parcel of this size going for a parking garage with the shrinking availability of developable land on the peninsula.
  5. Silver Airways announced new non-stop flights from CHS to Orlando, Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale starting on May 21. https://www.live5news.com/2020/02/26/nonstop-flights-charleston-florida-start-may/ Silver will introduce the 70-passenger ATR-600 aircraft for the Charleston flights.
  6. The Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital and Pearl Tourville Women's Pavilion opened this past weekend. https://musckids.org/about-us/sjch
  7. Link from CHStoday's website - nothing new but includes some nice exterior renderings: https://chstoday.6amcity.com/waterfront-hotel-downtown-charleston-sc/?omhide=true The construction activity and noise in that area is going to be tough on nearby residents and visitors for the next 18 months.
  8. Groundbreaking event was today. https://www.live5news.com/2020/02/20/groundbreaking-ceremony-held-waterfront-hotel-charleston/ So it's now being dubbed as The Cooper Hotel.

  14. City Council gave final reading last evening on approval of Epic Center PUD which will allow buildings up to 18 floors on select parcels of the development.
  15. I would have thought Greystar Real Estate had long ago moved into Courier Square but I suppose not. https://charlestonbusiness.com/news/construction/77578/?utm_term=Greystar opens new corporate headquarters&utm_campaign=Tuesday's headlines from the Charleston Regional Business Journal&utm_content=email&utm_source=Act-On+Software&utm_medium=email 71 conference rooms?!
  16. City Council gave 2nd reading last evening to redevelopment of Citadel Mall (a/k/a Epic Center): https://www.live5news.com/2019/11/26/city-council-considering-redevelopment-plans-citadel-mall/ Summary land use of Epic Center: Shopping Center 1,075,000 square feet MUSC Medical Office 275,000 square feet General Office Building 1,400,000 square feet Multifamily Housing (High Rise) 1,025 dwelling units Assisted Living 200 beds Government Office Building/Civic 15,000 square feet Hotel 500 rooms Arena 200,000 square feet

  18. A privately owned soccer complex called Pitch 579 could be coming to Daniel Island: https://www.live5news.com/2019/11/20/new-recreational-soccer-complex-planned-daniel-island/
  19. Tecklenburg wins second term as mayor in run-off against Councilman Mike Seekings. I was impressed with Seekings' post election comments last evening. He really came off as classy person. https://www.postandcourier.com/john-tecklenburg-cruises-by-councilman-mike-seekings-in-charleston-mayoral/article_8d1fd8ac-0a41-11ea-902f-6bb5ca0a6d27.html
  20. The BAR did not give final approval at its Oct 23 meeting but did give final approval at its Nov 13 meeting for 838 and 850 Morrison Dr. The BAR also gave final approval for 1080 and 1090 Morrison Drive. With construction underway for the Charleston Technology Center at 999 Morrison Drive this area of town will be undergoing a huge transformation.
  21. Charleston has been awarded a $18.1MM grant to build the bicycle and pedestrian bridge across the Ashley. https://www.postandcourier.com/news/charleston-awarded-million-for-new-ashley-river-bike-pedestrian-bridge/article_468c8bce-00be-11ea-88bc-1f460f88da59.html
  22. I was hoping Gary White could have run a stronger campaign as I thought initially he had the best chance to defeat Tecklenburg. My prediction is either Teck will capture 51% vote tomorrow or a run-off with City Councilman Mike Seekings with Teck winning the run-off.
  23. This project went back before the BAR last week seeking approval to increase the hieght additional floor based on architectural merit. The BAR approved the request, Now it will be a 7 floor building if it gets built,
  24. Construction is well underway now: https://abcnews4.com/news/local/international-african-american-museum-taking-shape-in-charleston
  25. BAR will review 838 & 850 Morrision Drive for final approval at its Oct 23 meeting. https://www.charleston-sc.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_10232019-4975 I'm still somewhat shocked that the office building (850 Morrison) has made survived it this far with the proposed design.
