Joe E. Berry Residence Hall
Charleston, South Carolina
With more than 10,000 students competing for living space in the second most-populous metropolitan area in the state, the College of Charleston sought to develop a 190,000-square-foot, multi-story facility to house some 600 students. Through thoughtful planning, Keenan Development assessed and coordinated the collegeís needs while meeting the stringent historic district requirements of both the city of Charleston and the state of South Carolina to successfully deliver the $18 million facility.
 
Through thoughtful planning, Keenan Development assessed and coordinated the College of Charlestonís needs with meeting the stringent downtown historic district requirements of both the city of Charleston and the state of South Carolina, and successfully developed this $18 million, multi-story, 600-student residence hall facility.

Keenan Development used public/private funding to complete the design/build/finance project, which included student sleeping and living quarters, associated study areas, commercial space and food service facilities.
Subsequent refinancing of this transaction allowed the College to repay its rental and debt obligations considerably sooner than originally planned, thus saving the College and taxpayers significant funds.

The facility is owned by a not-for-profit entity affiliated with the College.

As is the case with all Keenan Development projects, the Madren Center, Martin Inn and Walker Course were completed on time and within budget.
