61 CANNON STREET RESIDENCES
SHORT TERM RENTAL APARTMENTS DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON, SC
Located in Charleston’s historic district, the project involves the conversion of a mid-century YMCA building into a mixed use of short-term residential and commercial spaces.
At the existing building, five multi-level apartments are incorporated into the existing large-scaled gymnasium space. One facade of the exterior masonry wall of the gym will be largely removed and replaced with full wall-height window walls, each with external custom-perforated aluminum screens. The combination of windows and screens will provide filtered natural light to enter the interior of the spaces while maintaining privacy in an urban environment.
The existing non-historic gable roof at the street-side portion of the existing building will be removed and replaced with a rooftop terrace. The space below will be used as commercial retail.
Two additional residential units comprise a new two-story addition at the rear of the existing building.
The project has received final BAR approval and is currently in the design phase. Construction is anticipated to start in late 2019.
