Construction has begun redevelopment of two historic storehouses in North Charleston, SC as part of transformation of the former Naval Base into a mixed-use neighborhood.

Charleston’s 1901-Vintage Naval Base Getting New Life as Mixed-Use Neighborhood

A partnership made up of Jamestown, Weaver Capital Partners, WECCO Development and Piedmont Private Equity has broken ground on the redevelopment of two historic storehouses in North Charleston, SC. The Storehouse 8 and Storehouse 9 project is part of a broader, multiphase transformation of a 79-acre portion of Charleston’s former Naval Base into a mixed-use neighborhood.

The 40,000-square-foot, two-story Storehouse 8, which was constructed in 1906, will be restored and repurposed with restaurant, event space and offices.

The adjacent Storehouse 9, a 67,000-square-foot, four-story building constructed in 1918, will include restaurants and shops on the ground floor, a rooftop bar and restaurant with views of the Cooper River and 86 units with the flexibility to serve as live/work, including eight on the ground floor with a retail component, geared to makers and artisans.

The project also includes construction of a new restaurant space and community gathering place within the plaza between storehouses 8 and 9.
