Urban Renewal Authority Considers Projects

The Charleston Urban Renewal Authority spent much of Wednesday talking about construction projects. Among those, the East End Park construction project, plus the conversion of the Kyle Furniture building. Developers have expressed interest in making the Kyle Furniture building into lofts and commercial space and they would include a parking garage. As for the park project...the East End Community Park and Trail on Dixie Street continues to move forward on target. Construction is in the final phase now and the main entrance arch is up. The landscape will be installed, and then the second phase of construction will begin, which will install a walking and jogging trai. The entire project should be finished by August.
