This performance area intends to guide the physical form and structure of the district. A city’s urban form evolves over time due to changing patterns of the social, political and economic processes. Variations in street and block configurations, natural features, building types and architectural elements contribute to the urban fabric of Charleston. In the study area, significant population growth and development is on the rise and expected to continue. Couple that with an abundance of vacant and/or underutilized lots and buildings, and a prime opportunity exists to discuss how the physical form of the area can be guided as density patterns, building styles, transportation infrastructures and population patterns are abruptly changing.
