After years of delay, it appears the historic Sergeant Jasper redevelopment project on the Charleston peninsula has been given the green light to proceed from the Charleston Board of Architectural Review (BAR).
Earlier tonight, the BAR, in a unanimous vote, approved The Beach Company’s preliminary review application for the company's redevelopment plans.
“We are looking forward to advancing the plan to the third and final phase of the BAR review process,” said John Darby, CEO of The Beach Company. “There is no other location on the peninsula – or possibly the Eastern Seaboard – like the Sergeant Jasper site. The City of Charleston is the number-one city in the world, the surrounding neighborhood is one of the most desirable on the peninsula, and the city’s Board of Architectural Review has high expectations for the use of quality materials on this special waterfront project. The Jasper’s combination of location, views, and amenities will set a new standard for luxury living in Charleston.”
Earlier this week, world-renowned architect Joe Antonovich, architect of the Jasper redevelopment, told Palmetto Business Daily of his excitement about the project's expected approval.
"We have developed a remarkable design, a first-class design that has taken in all of the comments received,” said Antunovich. “This is a spectacular project, high-class architecture, high-class materials, and we followed through on all of the promises. I am so excited, I just can’t hide it.”
