CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The new plan for the Sergeant Jasper property in downtown Charleston will be reviewed by the city Wednesday.

It will be the second design from the developers after they pulled their first one in March. The last meeting over the design of this building was rescheduled because so many people showed up to oppose it.

Neighbors in Harleston Village are banding together with the Charlestowne neighborhood to speak out against the Beach Company and their proposed plans for the property.

The company is proposing to build a building that will be taller than the current one standing, and that has some of the neighbors are outraged.

The building is set to include luxury apartments, office and retail space and it could be up to 200 feet high. The neighborhood wants it to be no higher than 55 feet.

The neighborhood associations have drafted their own resolution their members plan to submit to the planning commission to attempt to get a zoning ordinance changed so that the beach company can not build a building that high.

Neighbors from the Harleston Village Association also plan to read a statement at the meeting.

The meeting will be at 4:30 p.m. at Burke High School.
