Courier Square, the development at the corner of Meeting and Columbus streets in downtown Charleston, is already leasing space to multiple businesses. Charleston Commercial, which handles leasing for the property, today announced some of those tenants.
Restaurateurs David Schuttenberg and Tina Heath-Schuttenberg plan to open a new Chinese restaurant concept within the space. They have leased a 3,063 square-foot suite at 128 Columbus Street. The couple currently owns restaurant Kwei Fei on James Island. Heath-Schuttenberg said they are still working out the specific details, but the menu and space will be “warm and modern.” Both restaurants will operate under Always Awkward Hospitality.
“We’ve been really scrappy,” Heath-Schuttenberg said. “We always try to think about things in unconventional ways. We want people to subscribe to the experience we’ve provided and that’s something you can do when you’re moving into a newer area.”
Heath-Schuttenberg said they are building their restaurant vision from the ground up and anticipate opening in early 2023.
Joining the Kwei Fei team is Totality Medispa, which is slated to open in July. The medical spa has another location on Daniel Island.
Charleston Commercial said they are also in negotiations with an Atlanta restaurant group to anchor the 6,305-square-foot corner restaurant suite. Nick Maylander, project lead for the leasing at Courier Square, said he hopes to make an announcement on that restaurant project soon.
The project also houses the headquarters for Greystar Real Estate Partners and the fully-occupied luxury apartment complex, The Guild.
That leaves two 1,500-square-foot retail suites available for lease.
“Courier Square is quickly becoming the hottest part of town for new hotels, apartments, retail, and office space,” Nick Maylander, project lead for the leasing at Courier Square, said.
