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 www.charleston-sc.gov/heightchanges for the proposed height map and additional information.
