CNA has expressed concerns to the City about certain aspects of the proposed height district regulations in our neighborhood. Of particular concern to Charlestowne are the proposed 3 1/2 story height districts on Lenwood and Rutledge, which exceed the currently built conditions of those streets. Adjacent streets are limited to 2 1/2 stories, while the bulk of Charlestowne is slated for 3 stories. The City has not yet offered CNA a rationale for allowing extra height on those residential streets. CNA is also concerned that the proposed regulations would allow the BAR to grant an additional 1/2 story throughout our neighborhood if it finds “architectural merit.”  
Please visit for the proposed height map and additional information.

Members unable to attend the public hearings may submit comments by email to or by letter to City of Charleston Planning Dept, 2 George Street, Suite 3100, Charleston SC 29401.
