Daniel Islandmore info
Daniel Island is a 5000 acre new community in Charleston, South Carolina bounded by the Cooper and Wando Rivers. DesignWorks began work with The Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, owners of the land, in 1994 when the island was agricultural fields defined by hedgerows, fingers of salt marsh, creeks and rivers. Guided by a broad stroke master plan, DesignWorks planned and designed the entire community, including the complete public realm network of streets and parks, the residential neighborhoods, the shopping areas, the schools, churches and other componets of this community of over 7000 people. The park system, managed by the City of Charleston, ranges from large parks such as Center Park, and Smyth Park to smaller neighborhood parks and is linked by trails measuring nearly 30 miles in length. Private amentities DesignWorks designed include The Daniel Island Club with two golf courses and athletic clubs on both ends of the island.
DesignWorks is currently working with the Guggenheim Family on the master plan of the nearby Cainhoy Plantation totaling 8000 acres.
