By

– The Post and Courier

North Charleston city leaders announced a plan late Thursday to buy the troubled Shipwatch Square shopping center on Rivers Avenue for $2.5 million.

Top among their revitalization plans are attracting a grocery store to serve a part of the city where there are none, even if it takes creative leasing on the city’s part to ensure a long-term tenant.

Additionally, the plans announced by Mayor Keith Summey call for razing most of the 18-acre property and bringing in new retail sites, along with housing for those with assisted-living needs, seniors and people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
