The Beach Company Breaks Ground on The Charles

New community to bring luxury waterfront townhomes and flats to historic Harleston Village in downtown Charleston.

The Beach Company has broken ground on The Charles, in historic downtown Charleston. Offering unmatched views of the Ashley River and the Safe Harbor City Marina, The Charles will consist of 15 three-story townhomes and eight apartment flats.

Located at the corner of Broad and Barre Streets, the flats and townhome residences will offer two- and three-bedroom floor plans, featuring street-level entries with wrought-iron gates, custom cabinetry, hand-selected finishes, oversized showers with shower benches and tile flooring, soaking tubs, dual vanities, gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, keyless entry systems, 10-12-foot ceilings, walk-in closets and more. Each townhome will offer a private balcony, gated garden and two-car parking garage. The Charles will also feature a half-acre park with views of the Ashley River and open green space.

“Demand for our Jasper residences on Broad Street has outpaced availability since opening in 2021. The addition of The Charles will provide a truly unique rental offering that aligns directly with The Jasper and its premier amenities, on site retail and restaurant establishments,” says Dan Doyle, COO of The Beach Company. “The Charles’ design resonates with a passion for the city’s historic architecture while embracing its cosmopolitan present, making for a remarkable addition to the surrounding neighborhoods and western gateway into the historic district.”

Antunovich Associates, a design leader in historic preservation and adaptive reuse projects, has been chosen to design The Charles. Architect Joe Antunovich, a recipient of the Legendary Landmark honor given to Chicagoans for contributions to the city’s civic and cultural legacy, also designed the neighboring Jasper community.

The Charles will include convenient access to the deluxe amenities next door at The Jasper, such as a rooftop pool, commercial fitness center with free-weight circuit facility, yoga and outdoor fitness areas on the Star Deck, locker rooms with showers and saunas, private wine lockers and a demonstration kitchen with catering prep space for private events. Directly across the street on Barre, on the first floor of The Jasper, is a community of restaurants and retail including Costa*, serving coastal Italian-inspired dinner and Alcove Market, offering daily breakfast and lunch with a curated grab-and-go pantry. Spa Azure, Baseline Fitness, Form Charleston, Hutton + Home and Ashley Artisan Suites are also steps from The Charles inside The Jasper, and a few remaining available spaces offer the neighborhood a range of new offerings.

The Charles is expected to be completed in the summer of 2025.
