North Charleston Plans Senior Living Development


The city of North Charleston is preparing for an aging population by selling two parcels of land to create park space, a grocery store and senior living.

In October, the city purchased the former Charleston naval hospital from the federal government via online auction through the General Services Administration. The property at 3600 Rivers Ave. includes the 10-story hospital, barracks and 23 acres of property and was purchased for $2 million.

The city had also purchased and cleared the former Shipyard Square shopping center, at a cost of $4.2 million.

Chicora Gardens Holdings LLC is purchasing the two plots for $9.2 million and could present a plan for development to the city as early as Dec. 20.
