The Residence at Simmon's Park

Charleston, SC

This four-story multi-family residential project takes its cue from the surrounding traditional Lowcountry architecture with a materials palette of brick stucco with stone accents. The 5.86-acre sensitive site lies within the heart of the New Urbanist Town Center of Charleston’s Daniel, and the design preserved a row of historic live oak trees which serve as the heart of the master plan. The residential wings of the building envelop the park and create a well-defined street wall along the adjacent streets.

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 and New Orleans style balconies, fixed shutters, and varying roof elements and heights accent the building. The building consists of 269 residential units with studio, 1- , 2-, and 3-bedroom options 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 breeze; additional amenities include large clubrooms, fitness centers, and an outdoor loggia for entertaining.
