677 King Street Mixed-Use
With a prime location in downtown Charleston, 677 King Street presents a cutting-edge approach to developing mixed-use shopping and office space on the peninsula. While Charleston is often renowned for its historic buildings, many of the existing office buildings can be challenging to navigate with employees spread out across multiple floors and parking is limited. As some of the first new construction, Class A office space in downtown Charleston, this five-story, 70,000 SF building focuses on providing the highest quality infrastructure with the greatest accessibility for innovative and responsive design.
Since the building is nestled between the Interstate 26 overpasses, the exterior is designed to be viewed from all four sides at different elevations. Furthermore, the Charleston Board of Architectural Review (BAR) requires buildings to offer exterior diversity to mitigate the potential of block-shape buildings taking away from the historical ambiance. To meet this BAR requirement, the top floor is smaller than the preceding floors measuring 13,298 SF and a curtain wall with alternating clip widths adds texture to the façade, making this building one of the first in Charleston to do so.
The ground level features mixed-use retail. Floors two through four offer uninterrupted, modifiable floor plates of 16,730 square feet, each accommodating up to 110 employees. The open floor plate layout can also be further divided to accommodate multiple smaller companies on any floor.
Designed to fit the land parcel, 677 King Street will be the first building in Charleston to incorporate a Car Matrix mechanical parking system to maximize available parking spaces. The Car Matrix will essentially double the number of parking spaces through car stacking.
