The city of Charleston Planning Commission has approved a subdivision concept plan for 81.3 acres located on an island across a causeway from Lesesne Street in Daniel Island Park. The subdivision consists of 62 new parcels for single-family detached homes as well as open space and was submitted by the engineering firm Thomas & Hutton on behalf of The Daniel Island Company. It is currently known as Parcel FF.
James Wilson, the Thomas & Hutton representative who presented the plan, explained that the subdivision concept plan meets all city regulations, and that development of the parcel has always been a part of the Daniel Island Master Plan. Wilson also noted that the master plan zones the area for 400 homes and that, together with Captain’s Island, the area is only being developed for 160 homes. The subdivision concept plan passed by a 5-0 vote, with the condition that the applicant meet minimum stormwater and GIS requirements.
The Daniel Island Company and DI Development Company president Matt Sloan said last week at a Daniel Island Community Association meeting that he and his partner, Frank Brumley, were particularly proud of this final subdivision as they are developing it at “the lowest density we’ve ever done.”
MASTER PLAN ZONING AMENDMENTS APPROVED
The Planning Commission also approved three amendments to the Daniel Island Master Plan:
• To allow the building of cell phone towers in non-residential areas;
• To permit the building of indoor athletic facilities;
• To increase the building coverage ratio for Daniel Island Business Park from 60% to 80%.
Wilson told the Planning Commission that the original zoning code for Daniel Island, created in 1993, made no provision for cell towers as the widespread use of cellphones was not anticipated at the time. (Daniel Island News)
