WestEdge building in Charleston completes 1st phase of ‘a city within a city’

Compliments of the Post & Courier

The newest WestEdge building is in stark contrast to the former landfill it is built on.

The glass-exterior 22 WestEdge office and research structure rises with a gleam above the underground layers of trash.

Evoking modernity and progress in eight stories, the 125-foot-tall building is touted as the tallest multi-tenant office structure on the peninsula and in the Charleston region.

The 156,000-square-foot building recently opened with 78 percent of it leased in advance, closing out the first phase of the long-planned WestEdge development.
