The Residence at Simmons Park is a 4-story multi-family residential project that takes its cue from the traditional architecture and building materials of brick stucco with stone accents long associated with the South Carolina Low Country. The 5.86 acre sensitive site lies within the heart of the New Urbanist Town Center of Daniel Island; preservation of a row of historic live oak trees was the nexus of The Simmons Park Master Plan. The building consists of 269, studio, 1- , 2-, and 3-bedroom residential units with parking in a four-level deck for 417 that is completely concealed by the residential wings. The pool terrace on the south side overlooks the lake for respite views and cool breezes. Large clubrooms, fitness centers and outdoor loggia for entertaining are added amenities.
The architecture addresses the City’s mandated goal that the project be reflective of Charleston’s rich architectural heritage. Traditional motifs of covered “piazza” or porches, open balconies and New Orleans style balconies, fixed shutters and varying roof elements and heights accent the building.
Simmons Park is named for an African-American artisan famed for his wrought iron design. The project incorporates iron elements fabricated by his descendents.
