Coming down

A group of relatively newer buildings — by Charleston standards, at least — on upper King Street will meet the wrecking ball.

The city's Board of Architectural Review voted last week to allow Evening Post Industries, parent company of The Post and Courier, to raze the structures between 631 and 637 King St.

The oldest of the buildings dates back to the mid-to-late 1950s. Their demolition will be a precursor to the next phase of Courier Square, a mixed-use development on 12 acres bounded by Meeting, Line, Columbus and St. Philip streets. Plans for the next phase have not been presented to the city.

A tucked-away office building in Mount Pleasant recently underwent a face-lift.

The two-story structure at 409 Coleman Blvd. now sports a new front door, paint, awning and facade along with a repaved and restriped parking lot, reworked landscaping and a new sign.

The interior of the 5,914-square-foot building now includes upgraded flooring, carpeting, ceiling tiles, lighting, paint and bathrooms.

Tenants include Morris Financial Concepts, Converged Network Services and attorney Randy Helmly. Built in 1983, the building is owned by 409 Coleman Associates LLC.
