    Balfour Beatty Successfully Completes Construction of The Jasper in Charleston

    September 27, 2021


    CHARLESTON – Balfour Beatty has successfully completed construction for The Jasper, a new luxury 12-story mixed-use building located in Charleston’s iconic Harleston Village neighborhood. The new landmark property is set to become the city’s newest business center featuring office space, luxury rental homes and premier dining and retail options with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Ashley and Cooper rivers, the Charleston Harbor and the historic peninsula. Balfour Beatty was named general contractor for The Jasper in 2018 by The Beach Company, a 75-year-old real estate developer headquartered in Charleston.

    Located in the historic district, The Jasper is positioned on more than four acres at 310 Broad Street. The property features 75,000 square feet of AAA-office space with unparallel amenities including onsite dining and shopping, a fitness center and ample parking. The building also accommodates 219 luxury apartments, where residents can enjoy first-rate amenities including the largest elevated pool in Charleston, a rooftop garden, The Jasper Athletic Club and lounge for residents, and outdoor dining/cooking area.

    Additionally, the building’s first floor consists of 25,000 square feet of retail space with a 534-car enclosed parking garage. Retail offerings include shopping, services and dining experiences with outdoor seating, walkways and parks to create a distinct gathering space for residents, business professionals and guests.

    “The Jasper’s location, which allows for unmatched views in every direction, along with its premier amenities, is what makes this a one-of-a-kind legacy project and the finest building in Charleston,” said John Darby, president and CEO of The Beach Company. “Since day one, we have recognized The Jasper as a jewel in the City's architectural crown. The Beach Company is proud to continue our 75-year history of establishing landmark properties and communities that improve the quality of life for our neighbors and contribute to the long-term economic vitality of the region.”

    Earlier this year, The Beach Company relocated its corporate headquarters to The Jasper and occupies the fifth and sixth floors of the property’s office building. The residential building is in active lease-up with limited space remaining.

    “It is an honor to work with The Beach Company to provide a building that creates optimal space for businesses and residents in Charleston,” said Jeff Sandeen, Balfour Beatty senior vice president. “I’m incredibly proud of our project team whose ongoing commitment to the client and our partners helped to deliver a state-of-the-art property that the entire city can enjoy. We look forward continuing our vital work in the area and leveraging our building expertise to further enhance the growing Charleston community.”

    The Jasper was designed by Antunovich Associates of Chicago in partnership with LS3P and DesignWorks of Charleston.  For video footage of the completed building visit youtube.com/BalfourBeattyUS. To learn more about The Jasper, visit jaspercharleston.com.
