Sumar Street Site Redevelopment

Northbridge WARC Presentation - 9.11 Meeting - 9.11.194

Introduction

The Sumar Street redevelopment,  Northbridge - Charles Towne gateway, site is a 2.5 acre parcel of land located at a central entrance point of West Ashley. The site was once home to a 33,756 sq. ft Piggly Wiggly supermarket. After a 5-year period of vacancy, the city purchased the property on August 8th, 2017 for the price of $3.029 million. The Piggly Wiggly structure was demolished in May 2018, leaving the property in a present state: a lot ripe for redevelopment and revitalization. Since the City’s acquisition of the property, City and County officials have collaborated with community members and civil engineers to envision different possibilities for the space.
