Charleston Civic Design Center

85 Calhoun Street, Charleston, SC 29401

The Charleston Civic Design Center is an urban design studio and public engagement event space operated by the City of Charleston. The center functions as a gallery, event venue, meeting space and information center for the general public about urban design and planning matters.

The building is uniquely positioned to serve as a community design idea hub, using its physical shopfront and virtual interfaces to engage stakeholders in the design process.


We welcome and encourage the use of ground floor rooms by community groups for civic purposes.
