West Ashley is one of the most popular Charleston neighborhoods for young families, professionals, and newcomers to our beautiful city. It is growing into a fabulous shopping mecca and the place new businesses and homeowners want to be.
At the center of that trend is the redevelopment of the Citadel Mall. Currently, Citadel Mall is a traditional shopping mall space but it will soon be under construction to become a open air, mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented shopping center. The City of Charleston’s plan for development has been described to help rebrand West Ashley:
“The successful redevelopment of this property will create meaningful momentum in establishing a new identity for West Ashley, induce subsequent, like-kind development in the surrounding area and become a significant catalyst for change along the entire Sam Rittenberg Corridor.” ~charleston-sc.gov
Why We’re Excited About The New Citadel Mall
Not only will the new outdoor pedestrian-focused mall bring in new shops, designer brands, restaurants, and so on — it will also improve the entire West Ashley area. West Ashley is already on it’s way to becoming one of the most trendy and fun neighborhoods, with the extensive neighborhood construction as well as the nightlife at Avondale.
Professionals have an easy commute to work with quick access to 526, 26, and downtown and many options for after work hours with great food and drinks at the trendy bars in Avondale. Hopefully, with this new construction, we’ll also have the best (and a little bit more convenient) shopping too!
