St. Jasper Redevelopment

Recommended Posts

St. jasper redevelopment plans moving forward

St. Jasper has been a hot topic on the peninsula for months now.  A ruing on the original proposal is possible soon but appeals are likely.  There is a negotiated compromise that Beach Company doesn't seem to want and an alternative that keeps the building in place.  

You can see the proposed new buildings in that alternative here:

BAR approves Jasper design

Looks like this is a sure thing now.

The large building - one of the largest the board has ever reviewed - includes ground-floor retail spaces totaling 25,000 square feet, and a 75,000-square-foot office space along Barre Street.

It will house 222 residential units, a slight reduction from past proposals. That has allowed for more amenities, including a fifth floor terrace and outdoor pool, as well as a fitness center.

The Beach Co. President John Darby has said the company expects to raze the existing 1950 apartment building sometime this summer.

Thought I post of pic of The Jasper.   Definitely can see the influence of the Peoples Building as the architects sought.

12 story's.  This thing has to be at the height limit for Charleston.

It is far beyond it. But since the prior building was no taller, they allowed it as grandfathered.  The old St. Jasper was built before the limits in place now had been enacted. 

The original plan was for a project that conformed to the height limit as it no stands,  It would have been 4 stories IIRC. Opposition over the proposed Publix being opened 24 hours caused The Beach Company to pull that idea altogether and go with this.
