This looks like a shopping mall in Atlanta. The last thing it should be called is elegant.
Will any affordable units be allotted? #ilovedowntowntoo. Other cities luxury buildings housed 80/20 units. Charleston needs affordable housing downtown. Why not start here!
Hey hip hop artist come get your new beats at
That College of Charleston rent revenue will make it work.
This is a great idea. If they are capable of doing the work safely, I would be happy to see them have jobs and leading a more productive life.
I will drop in when they open. I am always looking for a good cup of coffee that does not require me to learn Latin just to place my order.
Well, you people finally got something right. Heritage is a wonderful thing, "politics" suck.
Trying to understand this cartoon. Is it saying that only white Americans feel they have a right to carry a weapon for self protection, or that All Americans should be against the 'Constitutional Carry bill' because it might make it hard for terrorists to be noticed when they walk armed down the street?
If you are a citizen of the United States, the Constitution applies to you. The second amendment is a CIVIL right, just like freedom of speech.
Remember that he is our elected president.
Show half the respect that you liberals showed the last "freeloader".
We all want to be a part of our communities, not just live in them. Im hopeful that this will be the start of an open, honest and productive discussion that brings artists (and designers, developer, volunteers, et al as Buff Ross pointed out) and the non-profit community closer together. Thank you to the Nathansons for stepping forward publicly.
What an amazing idea! I will follow the progress as Bitty and Beau's comes to Charleston and make sure to be there when they open!
I find it sad and disturbing that this is the best we have.
every time I drive by this building I think about this >
In Houston Avenue formerly known as Avenue CDC which develops affordable housing has for over 20 years had a big ticketed event with an art auction where the participating artists can choose to donate either %50 %75 %100 of the purchase price. There is a preview event that tickets are about $100 each to come and the artists all come free. Also the Sat. event is about $30 a person now and artists come free. Most of us also volunteer time to help with the event. The desire among artists to participate has grown so each artist can only submit one large piece or two small ones. I have been participating almost since the beginning and usually sell one of my figure watercolors. We also get to set the market value and minimum bid and the then the buy now based on that. Images are on their website before the auction. it is a big success because of the split between artist and charity. I have tried to get some other organizations to do similar events but no luck . Only one other so far and they set the minimum bid and only give %30 to the artist. More organizations should consider a split if they want donations
That's our local kids and one is my daughter. We are so proud of them. We will be heading down tomorrow to watch the competition Saturday.
Bravo to the city for turning down the application.Now let's put our energy to halt the hotels from taking away the Charleston we came here to enjoy. It won't be long before we won't be able to look out across the harbor and enjoy the views.
Tom Starland - This is not about this issue just being discovered. ITS ABOUT IT STILL HAPPENING. But you couldn't resist just being mean. Per usual.
If you weren't running such an outdated publication and had any readership, maybe someone would take notice of what you say.
You know how people say that it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission? Not with construction permits. The professionals know this. They f*cked up. "Oh, but they're wealthy businesspeople, shouldn't they get their way with this neato thingy?" Dwayne asks.
No because that would make it even more f*cked up. The argument that they've rehabilitated the Rivers Federal Building is a red herring; they are getting their money out of that hotel and the restaurants just like they originally planned.
The Homeownership Initiative has several homes in its inventory and is a great place to start to provide affordable housing. This legislation kicks the can down the road. We have a good start in the HI program it's just highly under utilized. Please Google it to learn more
Really, you should take a harder look in-house if you're concerned. Awards have been created specifically for advertisers. It's a joke and it has been for a while. Foghorn Leghorn pretty accurately summarized the process. What you're doing is describing a turd sandwich and saying one half sucks instead of the other.
The real bullshit is that I have written many a commentary about this problem in my arts publications, Charleston Arts and Carolina Arts over the last 30 years. Yet the problem continues because some top artists continue to give and they receive exposure and then the organizations use them as a example to recruit other artists. If artists just say no there wouldn't be a problem. I have always recommended to them - If you want to make a contribution to a charity - sell your art at normal price and give them a cash donation. That protects your market. Or sell your work to a patron of your work who then can give that work to the charity and get the full donation cost of the artwork. The real bullshit is folks who act like they just discovered this problem. Tom Starland, editor and publisher of Carolina Arts.
