Reclaiming the Neck, again; Ashley River waterfront gets a second look from MeadWestvaco

A failed plan to reclaim polluted land along the Ashley River and build thousands of homes and businesses there is getting a second look, with regional development powerhouse MeadWestvaco leading the team.

While a building boom has resumed across the tri-county area, roughly 300 acres of once-industrial riverfront sit vacant in the Neck Area, the stretch of land between the Ashley and Cooper rivers where Charleston and North Charleston meet.

That unpleasant landscape, one of the first glimpses of Charleston for many people as they drive into the city, is seen as an opportunity to focus some of the region's growth inward, toward the metropolitan area's urban center.

But there's the challenge of making the properties a safe place to live and work.
