Tucked between several cemeteries, the Cooper River marsh and two former landfills, it’s the largest privately owned affordable housing complex in the Charleston area, with 26 buildings and 300 apartments. Now, the California company that owns the complex has put it up for sale, raising fears about a potential loss of affordable housing that one city official said would be “unbelievably devastating.”

A message from our President/Chief Executive Officer:

The Housing Authority of the City of Charleston was born of action on December 18, 1934 by a vote of the Charleston City Council. However, the actual permission for such a "creation" came via statute in the South Carolina General Assembly in March of 1934.

We have come a long way in our society, our City and our personal relationships. Nevertheless, the need for Public housing still exists today. We have so much more to do before we can truly say, the job is done.

Donald J. Cameron
President/Chief Executive Officer
