Proposal would allow 100-foot tall buildings on upper peninsula block in Charleston

Image by Flickr user Mr. T in DC Charleston isn't totally foreign to the concept of taller structures — nor is it foreign to debates on where they should be permitted.

While the Charleston peninsula contains many areas with 10-story or more buildings, most of those are located on the western half of town.

One developer says he sees another suitable spot: near the I-26-Crosstown-Cooper River Bridge interchange on  Huger Street. Question is, what will Charleston City Council think?

The Post and Courier has background and preview on the debate; read it here.
