Balfour Beatty Successfully Completes Construction of The Jasper in Charleston

CHARLESTON, SC — Balfour Beatty has successfully completed construction for The Jasper, a new 12-story mixed-use building located in Charleston’s Harleston Village neighborhood. The new landmark property is set to become the city’s newest business center featuring office space, rental homes, and dining and retail options with 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. The property features 75,000 square feet of AAA-office space with amenities including onsite dining and shopping, a fitness center, and ample parking. The building also accommodates 219 apartments, where residents can enjoy 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 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."

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.

The Jasper was designed by Antunovich Associates of Chicago in partnership with LS3P and DesignWorks of Charleston.
