Best Development Battleground

Sgt. Jasper

Staff Pick

Gearing up for a final round of approval from Charleston’s Architectural Review Board, the saga that is Sgt. Jasper is nearing an end. After years of heated debate and lengthy legal battles about what should take the place of the dark tower at the peninsula’s edge, about 222 residential units, 75,000 square feet of office space, and 25,000 square feet of retail space are proposed for the property. It’s hard to believe it’s only been three years since the 14-story apartment building was emptied to make way for new construction. While the new project seems lovely, this just goes to show that when you wait on Prince Charming to show up, you sometimes have to kiss a few frogs. —Dustin Waters
