    Still amazed at the size of 10 WestEdge. Not tall but a big footprint by Charleston standards.
  2. Expansion plans are being announced for a 2023 completion date to add a new concourse at CHS: https://www.postandcourier.com/business/charleston-airport-eyes---for-construction-of-new-terminal/article_e4dc609e-5fd1-11e9-a0e8-5f69315bdf70.html
  3. I drove by the construction site 2 weekends ago and I didn't think the cranes were any higher then the cranes used for WestEdge but it's also possible one or both of the St. Jasper cranes will be raised higher as the building goes up. But yes Charleston will never have any really tall cranes.
  4. City Councilman member Mike Seekings throws his hat in the ring for mayor: http://www.live5news.com/2019/04/25/city-councilman-mike-seekings-run-mayor-charleston/
  5. I would love to see Riverland Terrace on James Island annex to the city. And save those trees too! http://www.live5news.com/2019/04/09/riverland-terrace-residents-consider-annexation-stop-excessive-tree-trimmings/
  6. WCSC story on the proposed waterfront hotel: http://www.live5news.com/2019/04/03/project-will-add-feet-waterfront-park-downtown-charleston-will-include-benches-gardens/
  7. BAR has given final approval: https://www.postandcourier.com/business/real_estate/new--story-building-for-offices-parking-coming-to-downtown/article_756b735a-50bb-11e9-8485-2f707a7ca483.html
  8. CHS passenger count for Jan/Feb 2019 up 13% over same period 2018. 2019 total passenger count projected at 4.8 - 4.9 M. https://www.postandcourier.com/business/charleston-airport-passenger-traffic-soars-percent-to-kick-off/article_80ccc4da-4c22-11e9-be68-93fe71d2f91c.html
  9. It's too bad the Wawa did not materialize for the Citgo station at Semmes and Cowardin. That's a sweet spot for development.
  10. The proposed office building (aka Morrison Yard) at 850 Morrison Drive goes before the BAR on 3/27 for conceptual approval. Now it will be interesting to see if the design gets the thumbs up. Starts on Page 200: https://www.charleston-sc.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_03272019-4550
  11. Yes, and nothing done yet to address the "donut hole" issue, at least not to my knowledge.
  12. Ground breaking ceremony today for new 2,400 space parking garage at CHS. http://www.live5news.com/2019/03/21/new-charleston-airport-parking-garage-will-add-more-than-spaces/
  13. HB 3661 is currently under review that would allow one municipality to “leap-frog” over another municipality in order to annex unincorporated properties. This is all to allow the Town of James Island to reconnect the town from one it's former boundary iterations. Being the State of SC, I'd be shocked the bill doesn't get passed but the unintended consequences will be interesting. I don't believe the bill can specifically be directed to the benefit of the Town of JI. http://www.live5news.com/2019/03/20/james-island-incorporation-bill-has-support-critics/
  14. Charleston has not an annexation coordinator position in several years now, even going back to Mayor Riley's last 2 years in office. My understanding is the position will be budgeted for 2020 so maybe annexations will increase with a dedicated staff person.
  15. Chas City Council member Gary White announced yesterday that he will challenge Mayor John Tecklenburg in the 2019 mayoral race. https://www.fitsnews.com/2019/03/14/charleston-sc-councilman-gary-white-launches-mayoral-bid/ There could be 2 other council members running also. I would imagine announcements will be made soon. Also, College of Charleston employee Will Freeman has also announced he is running.

    10 WestEdge apartments start leasing May 2019. http://www.westedgecharleston.com/
  17. Why am I not surprised. Hopefully this will get appealed right up the SC Supreme Court but the city will probably lose there too.
  18. I had incorrectly listed the address as 575 East Bay but it appears the correct address is 475 East Bay but nevertheless the BAR gave final approval at its Feb 27 meeting.
  19. I noted in the Mar 7 TRC agenda that a 90 room hotel is up for approval at Citadel Mall. Not sure if this will connected to the mall or will be built on an out parcel. I am not familiar with the owner's name. https://www.charleston-sc.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_03072019-4484
  20. There was a Penny store at Citadel Mall, closed in 2017. It's being converted to a MUSC healthcare facility.
  21. Per the Post & Courier article the only Penny store in SC closing is at the Greenwood Mall. There is no Penny store at Citadel Mall. https://www.postandcourier.com/business/j-c-penney-to-close-sc-store-others-across-us/article_800d77f8-3b6d-11e9-b7b1-bb8b64e6eb35.html?fbclid=IwAR2lkrkNY9q6QwJg-9H-_W-_u5UAm-cbzojEDS6qHktxskSnFvtFDBSDuK0
  22. SC State representative Leon Stavrinakis is proposing renaming Charleston International Airport after former US Senator Fritz Hollings. https://www.postandcourier.com/politics/charleston-lawmaker-proposes-renaming-airport-after-former-u-s-sen/article_e3aaab0e-3ac9-11e9-b86d-f35f7a141327.html Nothing against the former Senator but I hope this doesn't happen.
  23. I wouldn't be too concerned. The comment about the floor not being poured was the exact same comments last year about a new WF store in Charleston SC. It seemed like that store would never open but it did indeed open about 3 months ago.
