Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has completed work on The Quin, a five-story office building in Charleston, S.C. White Point is the developer behind the project, and JLL is handling the leasing of the building.
The 110,000-square-foot Class A office building sits on a four-acre site that also houses a four-story, 125,748-square-foot parking deck with approximately 300 spaces. Located at Meeting Street and Algonquin Road in Charleston’s upper peninsula, the Quin is the first phase of a larger, 10+ acre mixed-use development.
Jay Levell, co-founder of White Point, commented, “The Frampton team did a fantastic job with building the Quin for us. Together with McMillan Pazdan Smith, Hoyt & Berenyi, and JLL, Frampton’s first-class effort is evident with not just the office itself, but also with the very cool amenity area outside the office. And now with the official opening of the doors to tenants, we are excited to have Interior Elements be the first to join the Quin roster and look forward to further announcements in the next several weeks.”
Designed by McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture, the building is constructed of structural steel with exterior finishes of glass, brick, stucco, metal panels, and canopies. The parking deck was constructed of pre-cast concrete and features mesh paneling on the two visible sides.
The building’s ground floor includes retail space, shower facilities, and offices. The remaining four floors each house 22,000-square-feet of office space. Additionally, a bike repair center sits at the base of the parking deck, and a public courtyard amenity area featuring a ping pong table, putting green, outdoor seating, and extensive landscaping, sits between the office building and parking deck.
“The building was designed with consideration for the industrial environment of Upper Meeting Street. It took into account the proximity of the site to the water and how the form of the metal panels could reflect the imagery of the sails of ships on the horizon,” said Chi Moreno, associate project designer for McMillan Pazdan Smith.
Other partners on the project included Hoyt & Berenyi, civil engineers, RMF Engineering, MEP engineers, and WGPM, Inc., structural engineers.
