NOTE: Downtown Charleston high-end condo townhomes to be built on the Ashley River next to the Courtyard Marriott did not survive the economic downturn.. These 46 condo homes previously named Indigo will not be built. The Cigar Factory also failed to make it when it lost its funding.This was in the middle of renovation when the project for luxury condos halted. This will now be created into business/office/retail space - no condos at all.

Condominium living is becoming increasingly attractive in the Charleston area. One can now find condo homes on prime waterfront, oceanfront and historic locations with custom construction and luxury amenities. If one eliminates the time and expense spent maintaining a property, it often adds up to more than most regime fees associated with condo living which provides a more stress-free environment ideal for many.

HOA, POA, or Regime Fees (all terms are interchangeable) differ depending on the Condominium association and how they organize their budgets. Sometimes the flood insurance is added into the POA price and sometimes billed separately. If the condominium is new, it is possible that the regime fees are kept low and supplemented by the developer who still controls the POA, in order to stimulate sales. After the property is turned over to the homeowners, often times, this amount may have to be increased in order to have enough money to manage the property.

Charleston is experiencing many parents buying condos for their children attending school and working in Charleston, SC, as well as young professionals and retirees. There are also many investors seeking investment opportunities in new condo developments, so many new projects now cap the number of investors allowed in each development to protect the average condo owner.

There are a great deal of condo conversions in Charleston, especially in downtown Charleston. Many historic Charleston duplexes and triplexes are being turned into condominiums on the Charleston peninsula.

Buyers need to peruse the regime fees involved with these conversions before buying, and pay particular attention to the flood insurance costs.

Condominiums on the Charleston peninsula offer a viable alternative to expensive older homes whose upkeep can be a major financial burden under the strict architectural covenants of the historic area.

Enjoying the historic city, and living within walking distance to the dynamic downtown shopping district, old city market, libraries, universities, parks, and a variety of fine restaurants, one discovers that condo living combines those high-end amenities to maintenance-free living. Downtown condos include Anson House, Factor's WalkSociety Street , One Vendue Range, The Bristol, 33 Calhoun, 21 George Street, ChisolmConcord at Cumberland Street, The Crafts House, One Vendue Range, Laurens PlaceFactors Walk, Peoples BankBee Street Lofts as well as numerous smaller condos.


Cross the Cooper River over the Arthur Ravenel Bridge to discover the the town of Mount Pleasant. Some of Mt Pleasant's best residential views are from condominiums located along the edge of water. The Renaissance and The Tides are the main attractions, but closer to Sullivan's,one finds condo townhomes in Marsh Harbor, Simmons Point and Sawyer's Landing.

Closer to the Isle of Palms Connector and I-526 , The Meridian and Seaside Farm's Marais. At Seaside Farms near the Isle of Palms and the restaurant and shopping district, condos include a fitness facility and swimming pool. The Renaissance and Tides are located in Mt. Pleasant


Home to the chic Wild Dunes Resort, marina and championship golf courses, the Isle of Palms features a lively restaurant and shopping district and fishing pier. The ideal combination of beach front living and urban flavor can be found on the Isle of Palms, only 20 minutes from downtown Charleston. With six miles of sandy beach on one side, and six miles of marshfront on the other, life on this narrow barrier island is never far from a waterfront vista.
Situated on this fashionable strip overlooking the Atlantic Ocean are a number of very conveniently-located condominiums. Among those on the island, Oceanside Villas, Sea Cabin and Oceanview.


On James Island, there are also many apartment buildings that have been renovated and turned into condominiums as well as new condo properties. The Albemarle and Arboretum  are in West Ashley and were built as condos. The Regatta, Retreat, and Mira Vista  are on James Island.  

These condos are just five minutes across the Ashley River from historic Charleston, James Island offers a feel of the country close to the heart of downtown and features James Island County Park with its climbing towers, paddling courses, skating boulevards, and biking paths, the outdoor adventures abound with a municipal golf course, numerous public boat ramps and the fishing pier and surf of Folly Beach nearby where Oceanfront Villas offers condo lovers views of the ocean at the beach.

James Island condominiums offer all the advantages of the island location with maintenance-free lifestyle. At Wappoo Creek Place, just minutes from downtown Charleston, units have stunning views of sunsets over the intracoastal waterway. With private garage, gated patios, and separate living room, dining room and sunroom, three-bedroom waterfront condos are available for under $500,000.

Wappoo Landing condominiums, built in 2003, feature similar gorgeous marsh views along the intracoastal waterway, as well as tile bathrooms, wood floors up and downstairs, stainless steel appliances, a private garage and a community dock on Wappoo Creek.

Mira Vista condominiums offer crown moldings, ten-foot ceilings, and a swimming pool, this stylish community. Originally apartments converted to condos, the lack of building standards showed the results of environmental stress quickly and in 2012 were negotiating extensive repairs for the complex. Roofs and flashings seem to be the most prevalent problems.
