Charleston Horizon District
Charleston, SC

Charleston’s Horizon District is located on a brownfield site along the Ashley River. As a Partner of Cooper Robertson & Partners, Marc Wouters served as design lead for this neighborhood of 4 million sqft of residential, research office, commercial office, and retail uses. The plan connects the streets, parks, and pedestrian systems of adjacent neighborhoods through the site to the waterfront.  A new retail street adjacent to the major highway is oriented to allow views to the Ashley River.  An existing degraded wetland system through the site is restored as the spine of a new park that connects the waterfront to inland neighborhoods.  A research office area has a focal point near the center of the plan. Residential uses are oriented toward the magnificent views of the Ashley.
