The I’on community is an example of a new urbanist traditional neighborhood development. The community drew upon inspiration from the historic “Old Village” area in Mt. Pleasant as well as downtown Charleston. Proximity to Mt. Pleasant’s historic “Old Village” from which I’On drew many planning elements and world famous downtown Charleston, South Carolina allows planners to experience and compare both the new community and its historic models.
Features of the community include extensive sidewalks, shared public green spaces, trails and a grid of narrow, traffic calming streets. Most homes are required to have a front porch of not less than eight feet (2.46 m) in depth. Floor heights of 10 feet (3.1 m), raised foundations and smaller lot sizes give the community a dense, vertical feel. Most homes are on lots of 1/10 of an acre (0.04 hectares) or less, with large amounts of the community’s area being taken up by parks, trails, lakes, sidewalks and other common areas.
Comprised of 6 Boroughs, with each having features unique to its location, for example in Eastlake you’ll find homes overlooking the lake with mature trees lining the streets. In Ionsborough you will find a more urban feel to the residences due to its proximity to the I’On Commercial district. The best way to get a feel for each borough is to walk through them and see for yourself!
