Editorial: Charleston should gobble up West Ashley doughnut holes, all of them

As automobiles allowed Charleston’s population to grow dramatically outward in the 20th century, particularly into West Ashley, the land beyond the peninsula’s first bridge, the city didn’t officially grow with it. The municipal government did not annex across the Ashley River until 1960, long after suburban development got under way.

As automobiles allowed Charleston’s population to grow dramatically outward in the 20th century, particularly into West Ashley, the land beyond the peninsula’s first bridge, the city didn’t officially grow with it. The municipal government did not annex across the Ashley River until 1960, long after suburban development got under way. Instead, the Legislature created a special purpose district to provide citylike services, mainly sewer, fire protection and garbage pickup, that these new residents wanted and needed.

Generations later, the city has annexed much of the area that traditionally had been served by the St. Andrews Public Service District. Unlike cities, PSDs cannot annex and grow, so when their size is diminished, it creates more financial pressure to maintain their levels of service without raising property tax rates. The result is today’s unfortunate, awkward and confusing reality where residents in the St. Andrews PSD pay higher property taxes and higher water and sewer bills for a lower level of service than their neighbors in the city of Charleston receive. The only visual cue to the confusing state of things is that homeowners along many streets roll out different color trash cans to the curb: green if they’re in the city, blue if they’re in the PSD.

None of West Ashley’s current leaders created this mess — they inherited it. But all of them will create a better future if they figure out how to improve upon it rather than just accept it.

So we were encouraged by a recent offhand remark by City Councilman Keith Waring, who pointed out the reality and asked Mayor John Tecklenburg “to extend a hand of fellowship to leadership of the PSD to see if Charleston can negotiate something that makes sense to them and to the city of Charleston.”

Unlike his predecessor, who probably annexed more land than any other mayor in South Carolina history, Mr. Tecklenburg rarely talked about annexation on the campaign trail or once in office. Instead, he vowed to smooth over relations between the city and neighboring governments that had been strained under Mayor Joe Riley’s aggressive annexation push. But Mr. Tecklenburg also has grown more aware of the problems created by so many so-called “doughnut holes” — pockets of unincorporated areas surrounded by the city.

“One thing that’s become more clear in my mind over the last six years is we can provide better and more efficient service by filling these doughnut holes,” he said. We urge City Council to include a new staff position, an annexation coordinator, in the city’s 2022 budget to help do just that. The coordinator has been sought by West Ashley council members who have realized how much more difficult it can be to work with neighborhoods on such improvements as installing speed humps and burying power lines if only some neighbors are in the city.

But annexing these doughnut holes is mostly a Band-Aid, and while those who come into the city might be better off, leaders of the public service district as well as residents who remain outside the city arguably will be worse off, as they struggle with even more shrinkage of their tax base. One way to heal the situation for good would be for Charleston and St. Andrews leaders to hold a referendum in which St. Andrews residents could vote to be annexed into the city wholesale, but few think that idea is now ripe.

Instead, Mr. Tecklenburg said he has focused on working together, like PSD and city firefighters have done. Both respond to calls if they’re close, regardless of whether the fire is inside or outside the city. The city and James Island PSD soon should strike a garbage collection deal where their trucks pick up all trash on certain streets, rather than having two trucks work them on different days. And then the city should strike a similar deal with St. Andrews.

It’s not an ideal solution. The ideal, more efficient resolution is to disband the public service districts and allow the city to provide all the municipal services, but that requires PSD leaders to give up their power, and even then it’s difficult under current state law. Meanwhile, working together on service delivery could build trust and cooperation that will be absolutely necessary to enact a more thorough and lasting solution, particularly for West Ashley, which the city has been working hard to revitalize. One thing is clear: Ignoring the larger reality won’t improve it.

Firearms retailer to relocate Charleston-area store after paying $6.4M for shuttered Bi-Lo

A Columbia-based firearms and fishing supply retailer plans to move its Mount Pleasant store to West Ashley after buying a shuttered Charleston supermarket site.An affiliate of JJE Capital Holdings, the private equity firm behind Palmetto State Armory, paid $6.4 million for the former Bi-Lo space at 1200 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in October, according to Charleston County land records.The affiliate, Rice, Beans and Potatoes LLC, also mortgaged the site with a bank loan of $8 million.

A Columbia-based firearms and fishing supply retailer plans to move its Mount Pleasant store to West Ashley after buying a shuttered Charleston supermarket site.

An affiliate of JJE Capital Holdings, the private equity firm behind Palmetto State Armory, paid $6.4 million for the former Bi-Lo space at 1200 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in October, according to Charleston County land records.

The affiliate, Rice, Beans and Potatoes LLC, also mortgaged the site with a bank loan of $8 million. The mortgage was signed by Julian Wilson, an owner and real estate manager with JJE Capital Holdings.

The company bought the 5.5-acre site for $100,000 less than the price paid in 2015 for the 48,420-square-foot former food store and an outparcel building. The previous owner was Hancock White Columns of Athens, Ga.

A Palmetto State Armory representative did not return calls or emails seeking comment on a projected timeframe for the move from 3365 S. Morgan’s Point Road in northern Mount Pleasant, but store employees said the relocation is in the works.

An affiliate of Buck Management Inc. of West Ashley owns the 10.2-acre National Crossing Shopping Center in East Cooper where Palmetto State Armory currently operates in a former Food Lion grocery store.

Property owner Eddie Buck said representatives of the retailer told him they wanted to be out by the end of the year.

Buck said the firearms merchant’s main objectives for leaving were to have an indoor shooting range and to own the building.

When the East Cooper store opened about six years ago, Mount Pleasant would not allow an indoor shooting range because of the proximity to the Charleston National community and a neighborhood pool.

The firearms merchant has not said it plans an indoor shooting range in the new location.

Buck said he does not have a new tenant lined up for the space the retailer will vacate.

The former Bi-Lo site is zoned for general business use, but the buyers may run into a snag if a firing range is part of the plans.

“Palmetto State Armory has applied for and received building permits for interior renovations at that location, though not for a gun range, as that use is not allowed under the site’s current zoning,” city spokesman Jack O’Toole said.

The former Bi-Lo site near Sam Rittenberg and Old Towne Road remains empty, but work is underway on the structure.

The interior has been gutted, and a roll-off trash container with construction debris is parked out front. Roofers were working on the building in early November.

A loan business that was operating beside the former supermarket posted a sign on the door that it moved to a new location on Savannah Highway Nov. 1, leaving the small shop vacant as well.

The property also includes an outparcel building with an urgent care veterinarian and nail salon.

The Bi-Lo store closed in April after parent company Southeastern Grocers of Jacksonville decided to phase out the brand that got its start in the South Carolina Upstate in 1963.

The West Ashley supermarket was one of two Bi-Lo stores that remained in the Charleston area. The other was on James Island. It also closed in April and remains vacant. No plans have been announced for the space at 860 Folly Road.

Palmetto State Armory operates another Charleston-area store in Summerville.

The retailer’s other shops are in Columbia, Greenville, Ridgeland, Savannah and near Lake Norman north of Charlotte.

A new store in Myrtle Beach is expected to open in the spring in the former home of The Sun News at 914 Frontage Road near the juncture of U.S. Highways 501 and 17 Bypass.

By Wes Kerr

After slaying Myrtle Beach up in the Grand Strand and crushing West Florence in front of a packed home stadium, the Beaufort High Eagles have earned their way to Benedict College for Thursday’s Class 4A title bout.

You couldn’t have asked for a more compelling storyline, as South Pointe’s DeVonte Hollman faces off against his former team and Bryce Lybrand, whom he brought to Beaufort as an assistant four years ago.

As the two familiar faces prepare for the showdown in Columbia, let’s take a look at some key players on both sides in the 2021 Lowco football season’s grand finale.

Amariee Morris, RB, Beaufort

When his number was called on Friday night, the Eagles’ talented back rose to the occasion every time, punching in four touchdowns to lead a dominant offensive showing. Morris has been the catalyst all season long to spark Beaufort’s dynamic offense, using his tremendous vision, power, and acceleration to hit the holes and burst downfield for big gains. But Friday may have been his best game yet.

With an enormous credit to his offensive line, Morris gashed an outstanding Knights defense, displaying his elite agility and strength to break tackles before showing off his speed on a back-breaking 27-yard touchdown run. If Morris can find success early on Thursday, it will force the Stallions to defend the run, which can open up the ability for Tyler Haley to do some damage downfield with Zyrin Odom, Kacy Fields, Michael Dennison, and McLeod Reichel.

James Dennison, LB, Beaufort

It’s hard to choose just one player from a high-flying Beaufort defense, but Dennison has stood out as a major factor over these past few weeks to help his Eagles reach the state title game. The senior linebacker did a bit of everything for Lybrand’s spectacular unit on Friday, wrapping up tackles to help stop talented runner Terry Mckithen while impressing in pass coverage in key spots during the contest.

He continues to give that extra effort on every snap, and provided a massive spark when his team needed it the most. After West Florence recovered a surprise onside kick in the first half, Dennison got the ball back for the Eagles on the very next play, tipping a Deuce Hudson pass before John Asher Howell picked it off.

He’s been a phenomenal leader of his defensive group, and should bring his high motor, physical play, and dedication to Columbia on Thursday as he looks to cap off his Beaufort football career with a state championship.

Ja’Quan Thompson, RB, South Pointe

The Eagles were able to limit McKithen’s production on Friday night, and the run defense will have to be at the top of its game again in order to come home with the hardware. Thompson put on a dazzling show in the Upper State final against Greenville, displaying his impressive power and explosiveness with an incredible 133 yards on just 15 carries. The senior back has been a monster of a challenge for opponents to bring down this season, and it will take a terrific effort from Eamon Smalls, Alvin Wilson, and a hungry Beaufort defense to wrap up a dynamic ball-carrier with proven big-play abilities.

Quan Peterson, CB, South Pointe

If you followed hoops season this winter with us on LowcoSports.com, this name may sound familiar. It was Peterson who led the Stallions to their stunning comeback over Hilton Head High in the 4A basketball state championship game this past March. Using his quick hands to swipe the ball away, Peterson rattled off five points in the final two minutes to snatch the lead before calmly sinking a pair of free throws to complete the rally.

His championship mentality has carried over to the football field where he’s led a talented Stallion defense. After committing to play football at Syracuse this past summer, Peterson put his terrific quickness and athleticism to action on the field, using his 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame to rack up tackles and shut down traffic through the air. He picked off a pass to seal the Stallions’ victory this past Friday, and he will be one to watch both on defense and potentially as a kick returner on special teams.

It’s been an incredible football season in the Lowco, and we’re still not done yet. The Beaufort Eagles are heading up to Benedict College on Thursday night to play for it all, and #TeamLowco will be there to provide all the coverage of this historic state championship game. With an explosive offense and a light-out defensive unit, the Eagles are primed for a memorable night on South Carolina’s biggest stage.

Investors plan film production facility in West Ashley

South Carolina has award-winning hotels and airports that appeal to production companies, but the state lacks the studio space to knock its attraction out of the park, S.C. Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Director Duane Parrish said.

But that might change very soon.

One private business is going off script and not waiting for the government to make the first move. Executives have already designed plans for a production facility that could be just years away.

Ginger Davis, director of leasing at Trademark Properties in Charleston, said she and Founder and CEO Richard C. Davis put together an investment group in 2017 and acquired 4.5 million square feet of property at West Ashley’s Citadel Mall to reuse and redevelop into a multiuse development that includes a production facility.

“We want to create an environment where people work here and live here all the time. We want the constant impact of the industry. Not just the one-off projects,” she said.

The facility is planned to be a one-stop shop for production companies with sound stages, editing offices and more, in addition to a medical facility, hotels, office space, dining and retail.

HBO’s success in the space so far is evidence the plans could work.

In January 2019, the premium channel signed a multiyear lease on the empty Sears department store and transformed it into a sound stage for its comedic series, The Righteous Gemstones.

“We really used the project with Sears as a proof of concept,” Davis said. “We had a department store that was in a redevelopment project. There’s a ton of space. It was going to be either tear it down or find a new use.”

TMP plans to build up the property around the studio to welcome more HBO shows, Netflix and any other streaming networks or studios that want to film in South Carolina.

Without the guarantee of more business given the state’s small incentives budget, Parrish worries there isn’t enough business to sustain the infrastructure and suggests that’s why other proposals haven’t panned out so far.

“We really have not been large enough to support what I would consider a full-size studio on an ongoing basis,” he said.

The argument could be made that more incentive money could bring in more production, Parrish said, but it would be a financial risk to build before the government buys in.

Davis believes the solution is to make the property multifunctional so it attracts foot traffic and isn’t solely dependent on ongoing production to stay solvent.

“People will shop at our Target, at our stores, and it activates our property,” she said. “They have tons of parking, they’ll eat at our food court. The goal is for the economic impact to trickle all the way down to a lot of ancillary businesses.”

The entire package, including Medical University of South Carolina’s facility which opened in 2019, is intended to draw in industry business and be a place where a studio may have one show already filming and then it brings several more.

Davis believes adding a meaningful creative facility has the potential to diversify South Carolina’s economy even further beyond manufacturing, biotech and tourism.
