10 posts in this topic

Charleston never ceases to impress me. Check out the plans for the new Galliard Center on George St. This is the type of development that will still look good 100 years from now.

^ ^ ^ Charleston City Council, at this past Tuesday's council meeting, approved financing of $111.6 million for the construction of Gaillard Center, and work expected to begin in August. Total project construction cost is $142 million. The City is providing $71 million in financing while private donations is covering the remaining $71 million, spearheaded by the Gaillard Foundation. Part of the scope of the project is an office addition at the Center for the consolidation of City administration departments that are currently located in a number of leased facilities around the city.

Gaillard Center is expected to open January 2015.

Are they actually rebuilding the whole thing, or are they just wrapping this around the old one?

I see David Scharz is the design architect for this project; he designed the Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg and is well-known for his traditional architectural style. Great choice; I love his work.

There's a great article about the now complete Gaillard Center in the P&C. It talks about the neo-classical architectural style and world-class design. The whole building is fantastic, and it's a great addition to an already great city.
