Charleston Condos to Become Apartments….if Approved


During the real estate boom, apartments were converted to condominiums and sold. Now, condo plans are switching to apartments. Two such developments involving a total of 240 apartments on Charleston’s Upper Meeting Street could be under construction within months following action by city regulators this week. Those apartments, both slated for properties that are now empty lots, could attract hundreds of new residents to a downtown commercial area aching for redevelopment.

“These housing developments will help put people on the sidewalks, giving more life and vitality to the Upper Meeting Street area,” Charleston Mayor Joe Riley said Thursday. “Additionally, these developments are taking vacant property and giving it purpose as housing downtown.”

“The additional foot traffic will also add opportunity for the existing shops and businesses,” he said.
