The Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood is located on the Charleston Peninsula and can be easily found just south of the Crosstown Expressway as you enter Charleston from West Ashley. The area is bounded on the south side by Bee Street and Morris St., the east by Meeting St., the North by Highway 17 and the West by President St. One thing that you will notice while driving along the Crosstown is that some of the properties look a little weathered, but do not let the condition of the homes fool you! Spend some time here and you will be surprised by how vibrant and diverse this area is. The neighborhood is home to a very diverse resident mix, everyone from college students and professors attending and working at the College of Charleston, to young professionals, families, blue-collar workers, artists and chefs make the Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood their home. The area is currently experiencing a community backed and city backed neighborhood revitalization fueled by new restaurants and businesses springing up in the Spring St. and Cannon st. corridor. Along those two streets you will find award winning restaurants, local bakeries, clothing stores and small boutiques.
The two borough’s feature a mix of old and new buildings, including Charleston singles, multi-family homes, and condominiums. One thing that you will notice is the amount of corner stores in the area, which bring residents together and offer a convenience not found in traditional neighborhoods in the suburbs. You will also notice some of Charleston’s more elaborate residential Victorian architecture mixed in with commercial properties.
