CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - In a third and final private meeting, the Beach Company presented a new plan to Charleston city leaders for a mid-rise building at the current Sergeant Jasper site.
The plan would include demolishing the current vacant building on Broad Street, by Colonial Lake, that has been a controversial issue for more than a year.
The plan would have 350 residential units, 15,000 square feet of retail and 50,000 square feet of office space.
The Beach Company leaders agreed to work toward this new direction if the process could be expedited.
In the meantime, the Beach Company prefers to go with the plan that was denied by the Board of Architectural Review in June. That would include a 13-story tower, 592 parking spaces, retail space and office space.
Even though the Beach Company will consider the new plan presented Thursday, it will still move forward with an appeal on that plan that the city rejected.
