The Charleston Urban Renewal Authority has been working with developers to make empty lots in Downtown, the East End, and the West Side more builder friendly. A large lot in downtown where the old Holley Hotel used to be has been looked at for a multi level apartment complex, with retail and business on the bottom floors. Also a lot where Burger King used to be on the East End has been looked at by several grocery store chains!

The activity level right now is really exciting, and I can't wait to hear how it progresses!

About every ten years we actually go through urban renewal. The biggest project ever by the authority was when they built the Mall and Marriott.

Washington Street on the East and West end's of town have seen quite a bit of UR in the past decade. The East end near the Capitol has seen the most progress, but still much more potential lies ahead.

I agree, Washington Street East around Greenbrier Street has just taken off.

The West Side still has alot to do, but some of the areas closer to downtown are already nice and have seen good development.

Well I do know that for the longest time the sign in the window that talked about the project was gone, but they have put it back in. Other than that Idk. That building would make a great multi purpose building in downtown.
