Located in the “Old City Historic District” and emerging heart of Charleston, South Carolina, the “Line Street Project” is a new, repurposed development for mixed-use residential condominiums and commercial street corners. It is a major piece to the redevelopment in Charleston that strives to preserve and maintain the historical integrity of the Old City, including a historic train shed. Well on its way to being fully completed, the project includes a 9-story “gateway” building clad in yellow brick with formal details, and a 7-story red-brick-clad annex with more industrial character.
Also included in the design by Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) are four-story and 6-story buildings clad in limestone, brick, and stucco, with porches on multiple levels, rising adjacent to and behind the historic houses, and a 6-story red-brick-clad block will face Line Street (Residential Development on Line Street — Robert A.M. Stern Architects, LLP (ramsa.com))
Shops, restaurants, landscaped mid-block passages, and a network of parks, flanked by two new 5-story red-brick warehouse-type buildings, are part the transitional-style redevelopment project and promise to be restorative and influential on many levels. Ideally and thanks to all involved, these structures will represent an important piece of Charleston’s iconic history.
