Best Monument to Mankind’s Futility

Sgt. Jasper

Staff Pick

Charleston is in a quagmire of sorts when it comes to the Sgt. Jasper. The soaring apartment building has become a symbol of the city’s inability to decide on the direction of its own future. It seems that now the Beach Company is faced with few other options than to simply slap on a fresh coat of paint and reopen the old Jasper building as is. Rising up over the peninsula’s western gateway, Sgt. Jasper now serves as a reminder that for all of our toil and machinations, we are but mere mortals, and the best laid plans of mice and men often go askew. —Dustin Waters
