The site poses some of downtown Charleston’s biggest construction challenges: a confined location bordered by power lines, with limited access and soil that requires the addition of a deep foundation system. But over an eight-month build, those issues will be addressed one by one in the creation of the peninsula’s most modern handicap-accessible home. At three levels and 5,195 square feet, the mixed-use facility will include a second floor to be rented out for office space, an elevator system, commercial fire protection, and a modern, low-maintenance exterior. A deep pier and pile system will ensure stability, and help the home better cope with downtown flooding. The final result will be a unique, accessible mixed-use building that fits seamlessly into the modern landscape of downtown Charleston.
