Infill Projects Set To Connect Cities, Transform Region

Urban infill developments are slated to transform the vast industrial land between Charleston and North Charleston, South Carolina, known as "the Neck" area, into live-work communities that stitch the two cities together.

"Urban infill developments large and small, the type that brag of true sustainability because they are built around existing infrastructure and in tight spaces, are slated to transform a diverse tract of land that stretches from the Holy City at the foot of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge up to the shuttered Charleston Naval Base and into old North Charleston.

Considering the prime location of this property, in proximity to so many of the Lowcountry's main arteries, it's hard not to wonder why mass-scale development did not happen here sooner. It's downtown Charleston minus the parking headaches, an easy trip to Interstate 26, right off the foot of the Ravenel bridge and a quick hike to North Charleston.

But like a Southern conversation, this metamorphosis is slow-moving and prone to distraction."
