N. Charleston to Redevelop Retail Center


The city of North Charleston is sinking millions of dollars into trying to revive the old Shipwatch Square shopping center that has been moribund for years.

Mayor Keith Summey acknowledges the risks — and the unprecedented nature of the city’s foray into the world of commercial real estate.

But he said the city had little choice but to take the reins after its 15 years working with private developers didn’t pan out.

He said luring a grocery store — and a mix of other activity — is too crucial to the future health of the city’s struggling southern neighborhoods, where residents now face long bus trips or hefty cab fares to shop for food.
