“We are excited to work alongside the community and our project partners to revitalize this site and look forward to sharing development plans as they evolve,” Brad Cooke, Strategic Property Partners’ senior vice president of development. “At 155 Meeting St., our goal is to deliver a mixed-use project that embodies Charleston’s timeless character and human-scaled urban fabric. We understand the significance of building amongst some of the city’s most important civic buildings and intend to create something that complements the historic district that the community will be proud of for years to come.”
“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to continue shaping the evolution of Charleston’s beloved historic district,” Morris Adjmi said in the release. “Our design approach will remain focused on bridging the city’s past, present and future with architecture inspired by Charleston’s unique history, context and community.”
Hollander Design, which has designed private and public gardens, green spaces and landscapes such as The Pendry Baltimore and The Belnord in New York City, will lead the project’s landscape architecture.
