City Moves to Acquire 10 Concord

Rendering of the proposed residence at 10 Concord Street, deferred from the November 23 BAR-S Agenda
At its November 23 meeting, Charleston City Council made a bold move to acquire the property at 10 Concord Street “by any and all legal means available.” Located near the southern end of Waterfront Park and occupied by a parking lot, the property was recently slated for a new residential project that drew significant concern from nearby residents and advocacy groups, including the PSC. City Council stepped in as the proposal was heading to BAR, after receiving staff-level zoning approval.
We are cautiously optimistic about the City’s commitment to acquire 10 Concord, a plan that could enhance community benefit through the opportunity to extend Waterfront Park, and also offer a more responsible, resilient solution for this property that is particularly vulnerable to increased flooding and rising sea levels.
