A massive self-storage building soon will rise in West Ashley.
Charleston-based Quattlebaum Development Co. is developing a new 140,000-square-foot, four-story structure at 810 St. Andrews Blvd. across from Mex 1 Coastal Cantina.
The 1,200-unit, climate-controlled building with have three elevators and should be completed in nine months. Scott Quattlebaum said the company worked with the Charleston County Planning Department, since the property is not in city limits, for more than seven months to come up with a design that will be visually pleasing for the area and large enough to serve all of West Ashley.
The building will be managed by Extra Space Self Storage, which also manages Quattlebaum’s three-story, 100,000-square-foot self-storage business on Heriot Street on Charleston’s upper peninsula. The new building’s price was not disclosed.
Richard Morse of Palmetto Commercial Properties is a partner in the project.
Queen’s reign ends
After 12 years on Daniel Island, Queen Anne’s Revenge has turned off the lights for good.
The restaurant and bar at 160 Fairchild St. was part of Neighborhood Dining Group, which once launched the Buccaneer in downtown Charleston. The pirate-themed restaurant closed in 2010 after two years.
“To our valued and loyal guests who have supported us over the years, we want to thank you,” Neighborhood Dining Group President David Howard said in a statement on the restaurant’s website. “We will miss you all.”
An earlier posting on Queen Anne’s Facebook page said the restaurant and the nearby Hampton Inn “are in the process of being acquired by a local development group.” That part of Howard’s statement was later removed.
Neighborhood Dining Group continues to operate Husk in Charleston and Nashville, McCrady’s in Charleston and Chicago’s Steak and Seafood in Roswell, Ga., near Atlanta.
C. Wonder, a women’s clothing, accessories and home decor shop, will open its 15th store this fall at 285 King St. in downtown Charleston, where the Puma shoe shop was once located.
The shop, which first opened in New York City in 2011, is the brainchild of investor J. Christopher Burch, founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital and ex-husband of celebrity fashion designer Tory Burch. It also will offer footwear, jewelry, housewares, personal electronics, monogramming and other personalized products. The average product will sell for under $50 in a floor plan divided into themed rooms.
The Hess station at 1683 U.S. Highway 17 at Venning Road in Mount Pleasant has been shut down for a complete makeover. It will reopen after renovations.
Lyndon Leigh, an affiliate of Candelabra Inc. lighting and home decor store in Mount Pleasant, will open this fall in a 4,437-square-foot space at 1944 Long Grove Drive in Seaside Farms in Mount Pleasant, according to Jonathan Chalfie with Lee & Associates real estate firm.
The shop specializes in gifts, home decor, furniture and lighting and will introduce new brands to the Lowcountry such as Jonathan Adler Home. This is the first Lyndon Leigh location.
