North Charleston to add 2,200 space parking garage to coliseum/performing arts center campus

The North Charleston Coliseum, Performing Arts Center and Convention Center complex off International Boulevard and West Montague Avenue is preparing for the 2018-19 development of an estimated 2,200-space parking garage.

The $50 million project, which will take about 18 months to two years to complete, was approved by North Charleston City Council at a Sept. 28 meeting.

The plan

The five- to six-floor garage will be located at the lot closest to the Convention Center between Coliseum Drive and Firestone Road.

The initial engineering plan is scheduled to be complete by early November and be put out to bid, according to city of North Charleston project manager Adam MacConnell. The contract will be awarded in January. 

"We think this may offer an opportunity for additional development in and around the Coliseum," MacConnell said. "North Charleston is starting to come into its own. Additional entertainment type areas might allow additional development to create a true entertainment district in the area."

During construction, around 400 of the complex's spaces will be out of commission, leaving approximately 2,000 available, according to the Coliseum's director of marketing, Alan Coker.
