Census Bureau: Mount Pleasant was nation’s 10th-fastest-growing city in 2015 - Post and Courier

Says Greenville is the 25th fastest growing and Mount Pleasant is 10th fastest and #1 fastest growing city east of the Mississippi. Little ole Mt P now has approximately 82,000 residents and...being here...it's gonna swell more because there are new 4 to 8 story apartment complexes going up on every darn corner it seems. Article says Charlestons internal numbers say it has already passed Columbia as the states largest city...although the Census numbers say it is still slightly short.

I know this. Whatever the official numbers are....it's officially tourist season down here and it feels like half a million more people have invaded our city!!!! Can't drive anywhere!!!

Is most of the new housing down there apartments and condos? There did not seem to be a whole lot of available land down there for a lot of new neighborhoods.

I wonder what Columbia's internal figures say about its population compared to Charleston's. That's interesting.

Another interesting thing is that nationally, the list of the fastest-growing cities is made up pretty much of suburbs of larger cities and they wouldn't be on the radar screen if not for the cities they are suburbs of.

In the lower and mid sections of the Downtown City of Charleston .. there is little available land for new construction... some rehab for sure ...tho ... the upper peninsula .. is virtually wide open for development...West Ashley is growing strongly as well ... and has the room ... and James Island as well... Daniel Island is about 75 % developed at this point....unless the acquire the SPA property on the island.... the Cain Hoy section of the City ... is quite rural still... but plans are in place and approved for major development ..up to 20k homes by the Daniel Island Company. As far as apartments and condo's are concerned ... given the 4 floor height limit ... and strict zoning laws... they are hard to get approved ... unless the Neck is freed from the 4 story requirement ... which is being discussed quietly

If your referring to Mount Pleasant...theres plenty of land to develop especially on the north end...some maturing... some under development already but barely ...some just in the planning stage... quite a few Donuts still around as well. As far as MTP is concerned ... town council just put the kybosh on any further multifamily construction permits till a study is performed ...god knows when that gets done. the sense I get ... theres little appetite for much more multifamily construction in the town...

I dont get too excited about city figures because our city limits are so wacky, but its good to see the state booming like it is, and the cities growing healthy.

We may not be Texas, but we're going strong this decade.
