In the race to attract the best and brightest minds, Charleston's WestEdge has assets that other sites can only imitate - the untapped richness and allure of the city it calls home.
As Part of Charleston's West Side, WestEdge is a new extension of a thriving, established community - of beloved parks, athletic fields, schools, stadiums, hotels, and award-winning research hospitals and universities. Surrounded by the Medical University of South Carolina, Roper St. Francis Healthcare, the College of Charleston, and The Citadel, WestEdge is the next generation of research and discovery districts - driven by a desire to be ever more livable, ever more accessible, and ever more connected. The plan includes design and public access elements that create a walkable, healthy ambiance for the community. A bright, active main street forms the heart of the district, with a Publix Super Market, shops, restaurants, and outdoor cafes. And a network of pedestrian, bike and auto cross connections will link the peninsula's greater West Side community to the waterfront at Brittlebank Park.Download WestEdge Connectivity Map
