Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Promenade, Charleston, South Carolina
Ginn Co. seeking input on 200 acres

Public to weigh in on what should be built on Promenade

Driving into Charleston across the Ravenel Bridge, it's easy to spot the huge piece of property known as Promenade, a nearly 200-acre chunk of waterfront green space between Morrison Drive and Town Creek.

It is by far the largest undeveloped property on the peninsula below Mount Pleasant Street, and starting Monday the public is invited to participate in workshops aimed at helping the Ginn Co. decide what should be built there.

"They have looked at maybe 60 different scenarios on the site," said Christopher Morgan, director of Charleston's Planning Division. "That's why they want to have the workshop."

Promenade is the name given to the site by the Ginn Co., which spent more than $35 million acquiring the properties included in the development, and initially proposed a golf course, hotel and a marina.
