$30 million mixed-use redevelopment agrees to save historic Charleston SC structure

On July 6, 2016, the developer of a proposed $30 million mixed-use project for the Hughes Lumber site in downtown Charleston, South Carolina hopes the latest proposal will win approval when it goes before the Board of Architectural Review for a fourth time.

Plans for 33 apartments, ground floor retail and a 590-space parking deck hit a snag in June when the BAR said the historic part of a Hughes Lumber building must remain intact on the Mary Street property.

The latest plans incorporate the 500-square-foot structure into the site plan by moving it 30 feet to a corner of the property behind Bluestein’s Men’s Wear store on King Street, said Pat Marr, managing member of CMB Property Co. of Charleston, which is overseeing redevelopment plans for the Hughes parcel.

Apartment prices will be dictated by the market, and the units will primarily house post-graduate professionals, not students, he said.
