Plan received Award of Excellence from ASLA (Oct 2005)
The North Charleston Noisette Community Master Plan has been prepared under the direction of the Noisette Company, with important contributions from many North Charleston Citizens and government agencies, from professional organization and non profit associations, and other interested parties.
The Noisette Community is a Sustainable vision for the 3,000-acre historic center of the City of North Charleston, South Carolina. This land has a solid history of agriculture, industry, and Commerce. It also included about 350-acres of the former Charleston Naval Base, one of the nation’s oldest military facilities. This vision is based on the triple bottom Line- a balance among People, Planet, and Prosperity- embodying the belief that sustainable cities must be equally responsive to social needs, environmental responsibility, and economic vitality.
