CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - An abandoned building in downtown Charleston’s medical district could be cleared to build a new apartment complex.

The building, located at the corner of Calhoun Street and Halsey Boulevard, would be replaced with a 300-unit apartment complex if the city approves the plan.

Charleston’s Technical Review Committee will hear plans for the first time Thursday morning from developer SE Calhoun LLC, which also hopes to include 23,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor of the new building.

The city’s planning department says the complex could be up to seven stories high based on the zoning for the area.

The site design consultants say the permitting process will take several months to complete because the design portion of the project is just getting started.

Developers hope to begin construction by the end of the year.

That meeting will be at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
