The Former Garco Site

Staff Pick

For ages, the former Garco site behind the Old North Charleston Business District has been an eyesore of lost potential. But last year, the site began getting a much-needed makeover. As it stands now, a massive apartment complex is in the initial stages of construction and the Garco building itself is getting rehabbed. While we’re sad that the new structure won’t include spaces for artists as originally planned, the infusion of new blood into Park Circle is a welcome thing for the community, because with new people comes new business — restaurant, retail, or otherwise. —Chris Haire
