North Charleston Center Expands

Charleston, South Carolina continually gets top rankings as a tourist destination. It's got North Charleston Coliseumwonderful history, beautiful architecture and plenty of scenery for a destination wedding. It is not, however, a large convention city.

But that's changing. And although the convention center is in North Charleston, about a 15-minute drive from the historic district, it's getting a nice addition.

I've seen the Boat Show, the Reptile Expo and Peter Frampton at the center complex and have found it to be a functional, clean, flexible space. This month, the Montague Terrace is scheduled to open, adding an extra 7,400 square feet of event space.

The Terrace is expected to be used as a food court for center events, as an event space for private receptions and as an entertainment venue for small concerts, theater and comedy shows. It's a plus that it's fully wired for a/v and lighting. It's expected to be LEED Silver Certified by the USGBC.

The addition of the Montague Terrace is part of an $18-million makeover that also includes changes inside the arena, a redesign of concessions into separate food courts to smooth the flow of traffic, and retrofitted box seats with kitchen areas.
