295 Calhoun Denied
preservation-admin , April 15, 2021
Last night, the Board of Architectural Review-Large unanimously DENIED the proposed 8-story, mixed-use, residential building at 295 Calhoun Street. An incredible outpouring of community opposition reinforced the PSC’s objections to the building’s overwhelming height and mass, and total lack of relationship to Charleston’s unique architectural character.
The public’s response was one of the strongest we have ever seen on a single project and sent a clear message to the applicant and the Board that this building is wrong for Charleston. Thank YOU to all who stood with us against this inappropriate proposal! We also commend the Board for holding the line and demanding better for this critical gateway site. We could not be more pleased with this outcome that underscores how important it is for you to engage in major projects like this.
