The Charleston City Council approved the annexation and zoning for a Planned Unit Development (PUD) for Wando Village located on the north side of the Wando River Bridge on SC Highway 41. The Property lies in Berkeley County.
Steve Dudash, Landscape Architect with Thomas and Hutton Engineering, who is working on behalf of the owner, Pastime Amusement Company (a company affiliated with The Beach Company) said, “Many months were spent meeting with the community and city officials for their input in order to create the best plan to become an asset for the region. Even with the new 55’ bridge, we want Wando Village to be a great place to be”.
This collaboration resulted in an agreement on the ideal density for a variety of residential types for a total of 416 units combined across the entire tract. Additionally, office, retail, and dining uses were approved. The first phase include a Class A multi-family community with deep water access.
The Planned Unit Development provides for a walkable, medium-density Waterfront Village, offering increased public interaction with the natural beauty of the Wando River. Homes along the Wando River shall be built with regard for the context of the existing homes across the river.
“The key thing about this project that I’m excited about is how the Property Owner/Developer and the Tuxberry Farm, Cainhoy Village, and Clements Ferry communities worked together in a collective effort to ensure that the plan will enhance the area dramatically,” said Charleston City Council member Gary White. “My job is to work as a liaison to see that property owners’ rights are protected, while making sure community voices are heard. Open minds always lead to better outcomes.”
Additionally, stated in the approved PUD, there will be areas dedicated as open space to serve the recreational needs of the people living, working in, and visiting Wando Village while engaging them with adjacent natural resources. Plans call for a waterfront park along the Wando River.
