Greystar and Prudential Real Estate Investors formed a new joint venture to develop Elan Midtown, which will feature a 200-unit midrise luxury apartment community with commercial retail space. The property is located at the corner of Meeting and Spring streets in my fav Elliotborough Neighborhood!

Developers extoll the benefits to residents offered by the complexes central location on the peninsula close to the region’s leading employers, educational centers and within walking distance of Upper King District.
The 1.77 acre complex will feature 200 apartment units above 6,887 square feet of ground-level retail space. A two-story parking deck will accommodate the apartment units.

The construction will provide a little relief for the bulging at the seams demand for downtown rental property and smaller retail space. I have contacted the company to find out what the pricing looks like, but for residents of Charleston looking to have less commute and modern amenities, this may be a good, if not only, downtown Charleston SC apartment option.
