Since we are eyeing Hurricane Florence reminds us of the Hallways and Elevator Lobbies at Dockside Condominiums which were last updated after the damage of Hurricane Hugo. Renovations have begun on the lobbies by updating all of the materials. Raising the ceilings in the elevator lobbies with indirect uplighting and new platinum leafed light fixtures. New porcelain ceramic floors, wainscoting and moldings will complete the design. Construction has begun by Chastain Builders and will take around six months to complete. #docksidecharleston #charlestonsc #Chastianconstruction #charlestoncondos #charlestonrenvoations.
