The Porter

a featured project

Project Description

As part of the transformation towards revitalizing the upper peninsula, The Porter is located in downtown Charleston at 577 Meeting Street and is one of the first major multi-family developments of its kind in the area. The structures that were formerly situated on the 1.4 acres were replaced by a 7-level, mixed-use building consisting of a two-level parking garage, 118 residential units with lifestyle amenities, and a combination of retail, restaurant, and office space.

Urban redevelopment projects hardly ever reach completion without complications, and The Porter was no different. In addition to installing a Cultec subsurface storm water detention system underneath the main driveway with limited working space, this project required connecting into the existing sanitary sewer line that runs 15 feet below the center of Meeting Street.      

Scope of Services

Erosion control; excavation, earthwork and grading; storm drainage with a subsurface storm water detention system and water quality units; facility water and deep sanitary sewer installation in Meeting Street; curbing, milling and overlay, paving, and sidewalks.
