SeamonWhiteside & Green Heart Project Complete First of Three Urban Gardens

SIES Garden Build

SeamonWhiteside and Green Heart Project are excited to announce the completion of their first urban garden together at Sullivan’s Island Elementary. Since announcing their partnership earlier this year, SeamonWhiteside, and local nonprofit, Green Heart, have solidified plans to design and construct urban gardens at three local area schools. On September 21st, the first of those gardens will be opened for children attending Sullivan’s Island Elementary to enjoy.

“We can’t be more thrilled with how this project turned out, and look forward to seeing it in action with the students of Sullivan’s Island Elementary ” said Drew Harrison, the Executive Director of Green Heart Project. “The partnerships with Sullivan’s Island Elementary School, Charleston County School District and SeamonWhiteside have made our mission of connecting students to healthy food through school gardens possible. It truly was a community effort, and we are ready to get started on our next project.”

Green Heart will begin installation on the newest garden beds at Meeting Street Elementary @Brentwood on September 19th. SeamonWhiteside has assisted through the entire garden design process including an architectural consultation, charette, construction drawings and budgeting.

“Our team is looking forward to working side-by-side with Green Heart to break ground on the second urban garden,” said Russ Seamon, the Director of Projects at SeamonWhiteside. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to give back to our community by doing what we love – building meaningful spaces for people.”

Through the hands-on learning experience of growing an urban garden, the farm-to-school programs put on by Green Heart teach students the value of healthy, local food while reiterating classroom curriculum, teamwork, respect and entrepreneurship. The school gardens are maintained through class sessions and weekly volunteer hours. From seed to harvest, students participate in every aspect of the agricultural project.

Green Heart envisions sustainable gardens flourishing across Charleston County, and there are plans for a third garden to be constructed before the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

Community members are invited to the ribbon cutting of the Sullivan’s Island Elementary garden, 2015 Mike Perkis Place, Sullivan’s Island, SC 29482, on September 18th at 2:45pm. The unveiling of the plan for Meeting Street Elementary’s urban garden will take place on September 22nd at 3:30pm at 2685 Leeds Avenue, North Charleston, SC 29405.

The SW+ Legacy: Carolina Park

SW_30th-Blog-Banner_Short-Kenny_Stuart

There are some projects that seem to take on a life of their own. For SeamonWhiteside, Carolina Park in Mount Pleasant is at the top of the list. As our fifth Legacy Project in our blog series, Carolina Park is the perfect example of the type of spaces we love to create – those that fulfill every aspect of life. Our efforts at Carolina Park more than 20 years ago created a thriving community that allows residents the means to live, work, learn and play.

SeamonWhiteside was first contacted about taking on the role of master planner for Carolina Park back in 1990. The tract’s original owner, the late Ben Marino, envisioned the 1,700-acre property as an integrated community, not simply a housing tract, and looked to SW+ to help bring the design to life.

AmenityComplex-ILLUSTRATIVE PLAN-2013

During the initial years of the project, SW+ worked with Marino and his partners to fine-tune the master plan into a living, breathing concept that incorporated single, multi-family and specialty residences, supported by a library, schools and fire station. Our team worked tirelessly with the Town of Mount Pleasant and Charleston County to craft a plan that would work for municipal leaders, the development team, the ownership and the public.

Over the years, SW+ has completed numerous subdivision layouts, engineered miles of roads, designed streetscape and utility infrastructure, and shepherded dozens of permits through the regulatory process. Today, we continue to carry Marino’s vision forward with help from the property’s new, dynamic ownership, Carolina Park Development, LLC, national home builders, commercial development companies and the Town of Mount Pleasant.

A few of our key projects in Carolina Park include:

Carolina Park Children’s Center

Carolina Park Amenity Center

The Active Park at Carolina Park

Mount Pleasant Hospital (Roper-St Francis Health)

Sewee Academy Elementary School (Currently in design)

Below are a few photos from the project that show the lifestyle the space offers.
