Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Promenade development, Charleston, South Carolina
Trash to treasure?

The Ginn Co. is giving new meaning to the old phrase "One man's trash is another man's treasure."

The Florida-based developer unveiled plans in late July to build an urban-style, mixed-use waterfront community on 180 acres of Charleston's upper peninsula. Most of the land served as a county trash dump for nearly two decades.

Conceptual plans for the so-called Promenade development call for building about 1,000 residential units, at least one hotel, an undetermined amount of retail and office space and a performing arts center. The development also would include a marina and public access to the waterfront, said Will Bagwell, the company's project manager.
