A large new development with a hotel, marina and homes is planned for the Charleston peninsula on refurbished land once used as a land-fill.

The Ginn Co. plans to build a combined 1,500 hotel rooms, condominiums and town houses on a 200-acre site on the Cooper River next to the Ravenel bridge.

The project, called The Promenade, also includes an amphitheater, stores and offices. Earlier plans for a golf course were dropped.

Buildings will sit on concrete piers reaching as many as 100 feet into the ground through the buried trash and soil to bedrock. The company has also spent $5 million hauling in fill to better cover the landfill.

The company and city are holding three days of workshops to get public feedback.
