Located along the Columbia Canal, Sola Station is the city’s first riverfront destination and neighborhood. The property is adjacent to the existing CanalSide Lofts, which also was built by the Charleston-based developer.
Plans for the $58 million project call for 339 multi-family rental units and 30,000 square feet of commercial space, according to the press release.
Named for the 19th century railroad line that once connected Charleston’s port to the state’s inland regions, Sola Station will offer apartment living in a downtown neighborhood within walking distance to major employers, restaurants and shops, the release added.
“The river and its natural surroundings were our greatest inspiration for the residences and amenities at Sola Station,” said John Darby, CEO of The Beach Company. “Everything is strategically oriented to the river, esplanade and greenway, creating a special place to call home within an urban oasis of shopping, dining and entertainment.”
Sola Station’s amenities include a fitness center, yoga studio, clubroom, pet spa, bike shop and dog park. The community also will feature a courtyard with saltwater pool, grills, cabanas, fire pits and hammocks as well as lounge seating and outdoor kitchens.
Construction on the project began in November and is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
