Board of Architectural Review gives its approval for Waterfront Park

Charleston’s Board of Architectural Review gave its approval to the development planned for a harborside site located on Concord Street in downtown Charleston, SC. National real estate company Lowe is the developer of the project. A 225 room hotel with a park side café, ground floor retail, restaurant, rooftop terrace and spa, all open to the public, is planned adjacent to the expanded Park at 176 Concord Street by Lowe.

Joe Riley Waterfront Park is the city’s most visited park. The planned development includes prioritizing projects that increase public waterfront access throughout the city.

“When Waterfront Park rose along the banks of the Charleston harbor nearly three decades ago, it was an extraordinary gift not just to our visitors, but to our citizens as well–a truly remarkable public space to visit, to enjoy, to share with family and friends. Now, with Lowe’s planned expansion moving forward, Charlestonians will be able to access and experience even more of this priceless public treasure in the years ahead,” said City of Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg in 2018.
