Union Pier Redevelopment


ZUMAN2

Recommended Posts

The SC Ports Authority decided earlier this year to close the passenger terminal at Union Pier downtown and have announced the entire Union Pier would be re-developed.  There's been a series of community  meetings the past several weeks.   Carnival passenger cruise operations will cease in 2024.

Here's a local Chas news media update concerning the project:

I went back again yesterday and watched the 12/12/22 YouTube video of the Union Pier information meeting.  

I didn't know that Lowe Real Estate had hired Jacob Lindsey to be the point man of the project.  Lindsey had previously served as the City of Charleston's planning director; left the city about 3 years ago to take a planning position with Boulder, CO; and now back in Charleston.  This is a major coup for Lowe as Lindsey knows how to navigate through the review and approval process.

This is a very exciting project, a game changer for the Charleston's eastern peninsula.   But as it's noted in this informational meeting. it's going to be very expensive to convert the tract from ports use to private/public use.  

The next project update from Lowe will be this spring.
