165 Room Hotel Proposed for Charleston CBD


The room boom that’s echoing throughout downtown Charleston’s hospitality business is showing no signs of easing. Tara Investments, a Charlotte-based group with ties to the newly opened 120-room Holiday Inn Charleston Historic Downtown at 425 Meeting St., has submitted plans to the city showing a 165-room, five-story hotel on an adjacent property at 415 Meeting St.

That site now houses Burris Liquor Store, an old Texaco station that Clyde Burris and his late wife, Sheila, converted to a beverage shop 45 years ago. It plans to move to the east side of Meeting Street in a new, two-story, 6,000-square-foot store to be built on the corner of Reid Street, Burris said Tuesday.

Anish Patel of Tara Investments said he expects the hotel to open sometime in 2014. He said he expects the area to continue as a strong tourist market.

“The demand in general in the downtown area has been very high,” Patel said.
