Charleston Main Streets— East End takes a unique and innovative approach to business assistance and design enhancements. This is perhaps nowhere more evident than in our partnership with the University of Charleston’s Interior Design & Drafting Technology Program and Contemporary Galleries, a full service furniture dealer and interior design firm in Charleston’s Warehouse District. Design mentors assist with the process where students provide conceptual designs to East End property owners who are considering interior adaptive-reuse or redevelopment. Students use this opportunity to complete their senior capstone project. They consider form, function, and aesthetics throughout the design process, and produce detailed drawings and documents for local development as part of providing a service to Charleston Main Streets. So far, six East End property owners have benefited from this design partnership.
