Architects assist Charleston in building design standards

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Meetings are scheduled for this week as Charleston begins to refine architectural standards for larger commercial, residential and mixed-used developments.

The city and the Historic Charleston Foundation have engaged noted architect Andres Duany and his company to advise and consult on the work.

A meeting outlining the task is being held on Tuesday at the Charleston Museum while the public gets an update at another public meeting on Friday.

One of the things being looked at is how to refine the process by which new buildings are considered by the city's Board of Architectural Review.
