New multistory WestEdge building breaks ground in Charleston for life sciences

The third multistory building set to rise in the developing WestEdge community on the Charleston peninsula broke ground Thursday — under a tent because of all the recent rain.

The eight-story office and laboratory structure called 22 WestEdge will sit next to the under-construction, nine-story 10 WestEdge building at Spring Street and Lockwood Drive. That’s where Publix supermarket is set to open on the ground floor in October.

The first floor of the all-glass exterior structure will house 15,750 square feet of retail space while the upper floors will provide 138,500 square feet of office space-targeted firms in the so-called knowledge economy, such as the life sciences industry. About half of the site has already been leased.
