Our New Home (and a look at our old ones)
For the past year, Charleston Waterkeeper has been fortunate to call Harleston Village its home. The amazing team at Schmitt Walker Architects took us in during a time when we would seek out any flat surface and an internet connection to get some work done.
These past twelve months have been incredibly exciting for the organization. Having a secure space for us to call our own has done wonders for our productivity. Because of it, we have been able to grow into the organization we are today – a more stable, more secure, and more focused.
As they say, “all good things must come to an end.” We don’t quite believe that good things have to end, but in this case, we are leaving our wonderful Vanderhorst headquarters and are moving into a new office. We will miss the gang over there, but we’re excited to move into our new digs.
And so, we officially present to you all, the location of our new office: 360 Concord Street, Suite 103, Charleston, SC 29401. Go ahead, write us a welcome letter; we love getting mail!
The best part about the space is that there’s plenty of it (allowing for a central location to meet with volunteers, interns, board members, host events, etc.), and it’s on the water! Not a bad view…
We’ve got some work to do before hosting an open house, but we’re excited to get our hands dirty. We’re so excited to have such an amazing space as our office. Come by for a visit next time you’re in the neighborhood!
We have called many place home, and looking back over the past three years, it’s pretty amazing to see how far we’ve come. Many thanks to the countless individuals who have loaned a desk, an internet connection, or even just a roof to keep the organization moving forward in the right direction. We are here today only because of your kindness and support. Thank you.
