Olmsted and Battery Park – The Plan for the Former Charleston Naval Base
Over the next 15 years, the northern end of the former Charleston Naval Base may be the go to destination in Park Circle. A new city effort to revitalize and reinvigorate the area has been proposed and the plans call for a mix of retail, restaurants, event spaces, cafes, parks and housing. At the present time, residents have been able to enjoy the scenic Riverfront Park, but in the near future, there are plans to connect that site with the future “Battery Park” with a new footbridge across Noisette Creek. A recent Post & Courier article outlines the ideas and plans for the area, which you can read here. If you would like to see the proposed plans in depth, here is a link to the general plan of what will soon be called “Olmsted and Battery Park“.
