The SW+ Legacy: Carolina Park


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.


Lights, Camera, SW+

As we continue to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, it seemed like a fitting time to film a new corporate video. Last week, our office (normally) filled with drafting boards and nerdy landscape architect software, was invaded by a multitude of camera equipment and production lights, accompanied by the talented crew from Hed Hi. With the help of Obviouslee in the producer’s chair, our goal with the video is to reflect on our company’s history, feature a few current project sand envision our bright future of continued growth. It’s been such a privilege to impact the development of Charleston, Mt. Pleasant and the Upstate over the last thirty years. We look forward to sharing the finished video come November!

Here are a few outtakes from the filming of the video:
