Named for the 19th century railroad line that once connected Charleston’s port to the state’s inland regions, Sola Station will offer premium apartment living in a desirable downtown neighborhood within walking distance to major employers, restaurants and shops. “The river and its natural surroundings were our greatest inspiration for the residences and amenities at Sola Station,” said John Darby, CEO of The Beach Company. “Everything is strategically oriented to the river, esplanade and greenway, creating a special place to call home within an urban oasis of shopping, dining and entertainment.”

Many of Sola Station’s amenities are strategically oriented around the river, including the fitness center, yoga studio and clubroom. Additional amenities include a pet spa, bike shop and dog park. The community also features an active urban courtyard with saltwater pool, grills, cabanas, fire pits and hammocks as well as a passive urban courtyard with tree and light gardens, fire pits, lounge seating and additional outdoor kitchens to fit any mood and lifestyle.
