What does Charleston have in store for 2020? This year the city will celebrate its 350th birthday. Although our city is already rich in history we still have plenty more in the making. There are many exciting major developments underway and new projects getting ready to break ground. Here are some of the biggest in-progress developments that are expected to open in the tri-county in 2020.

  • Charleston Tech Center- Expected to open this year the Charleston Tech Center is expected to open on Morrison Drive, by Romney Street. In addition to a six-floor office building, plans for this development include a retail tenant on its ground floor, a courtyard + outdoor park, and a parking deck. The building will serve in part as the home of Flagship3.

  • MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital & Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion- After some minor construction delays the hospital is now on track to open sometime in 2020. The 11-story, 624,000 sq. ft will be home to the only pediatric burn unit, level 1 trauma center for children, + solid-organ bone and transplant programs in the state. It will have around 250 beds and promises to be a state-of-the art facility.

  • The Harbour Club at 22 WestEdge-  Charlestons premier social & business destination is moving to the entire seventh floor of 22 WestEdge in early 2020. The club will boast panoramic views of the Peninsula and an outdoor terrace that overlooks the Ashley River.

  • The Refinery on Meeting St- The Refinery, a new 3-story mixed-use building in Charleston’s Upper Peninsula, will soon be breaking ground! The building design takes inspiration from the factory buildings in the surrounding area. The aesthetic contains large, square windows with muntin patterns that mimic old warehouse buildings of the 1800-1900s. The Middleton Group worked with the civil engineer to redesign the entire site, including plans for a new amphitheater for outdoor concerts. The building will house a restaurant /bar on the first floor with offices on the second and third floors. Exterior community spaces include an amphitheater, stage, and support spaces as well as a large second-floor balcony.

These exciting developments are just a few highlights of what Charleston has in store for 2020. As our city continues to grow so does its infrastructure. The past is rich but the future is bright!!
