Two small infill housing developments are in the works in the city of Charleston — one on the peninsula and another in West Ashley.
In West Ashley, six lots are proposed on a roughly half-acre site on Main Street in the Ashleyville community off St. Andrews Boulevard. The property sits between Tripe and Burger streets.
The property owner is Bubsy LLC, which is registered to Charleston Mayor Pro Temp Perry K. "Keith" Waring, a financial planner and city council member. County land records show Bubsy purchased the parcel in 2013 for $22,500.
The property is zoned for single-family residences.
Also planned is a 10-lot subdivision at 144-146 Cannon St. on a 0.29-acre vacant site on the peninsula. The owner is GMS Cannon LLC, a firm registered to Chris Phillips, owner of Associated Developers of Charleston. The property near the Medical University of South Carolina is zoned for mixed-use and workforce housing. It changed hands in 2014 for nearly $500,000.
Charleston's Planning Commission will consider conceptual approval of both projects Wednesday.
Rework in the works
Also, not far from the Main Street property, plans are in the works to transform an office building at 828 St. Andrews Blvd. into a mixed-use facility with an outdoor covered area. That's the former location of the Job Injury Law Firm, which moved to 12 Farmfield Drive in West Ashley.
The city's Design Review Board will consider the request Monday.
