Courier Square

Charleston, SC

This urban mixed-use project on the Charleston’s historic peninsula consists of office, restaurant, retail, and residential components all wrapping a central shared parking structure. The 69,000 SF, five-story office building anchors the corner of Meeting and Columbus Streets, and features 19,000 SF of street level retail/ restaurant space fronting Meeting Street and three floors and a penthouse of office space above.

The 228 unit apartment building extends to an existing rail line which will be converted into a pedestrian greenway. Above the concealed 624-space parking structure, a rooftop and pool terrace overlook the Charleston Harbor, the Cooper River Bridge, and Mt. Pleasant in the distance.

As part of the land lease agreement between the developer land owner, LS3P worked with Robert A.M. Stern Architects on the façade design. The office building’s stone base and heavily articulated stucco on the upper floors draws upon the traditional architecture of historic Charleston based on English Regency precedents. The apartment building reflects elements of the traditional brick mill-type architecture of the industrial buildings that once lined the rail corridor Greenway.
