ZREZ-06-23-00148: A request to rezone TMS 205-00-00-365 from the Low-Density residential R-4 Zoning District to the Andell West Planned Development, PD-185, to allow for commercial development.

Charleston County Planning Commission will discuss the above-referenced request at their next meeting, the date, time and location of which are shown above. Action of the Planning Commission is in the form of a recommendation to County Council. This meeting is open to the public and will be recorded.

Andell West is a proposed Commercial Planned Development adjacent to Freshfields Village in Charleston County. The development will provide a full size grocery store and will include opportunities for retail and services in-line with the grocery store. The applicant is Andell West, LLC, an affiliate of Riverstone Properties, LLC.

The parcel is 50.26 acres of high ground. The property consists of an open field and a mature tree line along Kiawah Island Parkway. Historically the property has been cleared and was used for agricultural use until the early 2000s. More recently it has been used as a staging/parking area for major island events. Uses within the commercial development will be limited to those compatible with the surrounding area and the Comprehensive Plan.

An objective of the Andell West Commercial PD is to limit the uses that will be available on the property in response to community concerns. The uses allowed will be more restrictive than those in the Freshfields PD.

The complete rezoning application is being submitted herewith. The Traffic Impact Analysis by Kimley Horn (pages 60 – 61 of the application) is considered of particular interest to residents of Seabrook Island.

Members of the public may submit questions or written public comments regarding this request by noon on Friday, August 11 via email or by mail to the Zoning & Planning Department, 4045 Bridge View Drive, North Charleston, SC 29405.
