CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
After the long process to remove what some called an eyesore downtown Charleston, a developer broke ground on a new building.
The Beach Company broke ground Friday on “The Jasper”, a luxury 12-story mixed-use building to be constructed at location of the now-demolished Sergeant Jasper.
The new building will feature housing, shops and office space.
The 17-story Sergeant Jasper was built 67 years ago but sat empty for years.
After years of negotiations, city council gave the Beach Company approval for the new building.
