Mayor Joe Riley and the city's top planning officials are pushing to develop Calhoun Street from Marion Square to the South Carolina Aquarium into something more like King and Broad streets.

The plan is to line the street with businesses, shops and hotels in, "an effort to breathe more life into eastern Calhoun Street and draw more visitors to the waterfront."

The plan has been met with some strong opposition from both the Mazyck-Wraggborough Garden District Neighborhood Association and preservation groups.
