The location on Wharfside Street is among the most captivating in the city, with magnificent views of historic Charleston Harbor, Fort Sumter and the Cooper River. The site was once a busy wharf area for the ships that have docked along Charleston’s harbor front for centuries, and named for one of Charleston’s foremost colonial figures, Henry Laurens, a merchant and statesman who owned extensive wharf properties along this section of the Cooper River.
Across the river, the Patriots Point Maritime Museum adds to the visual spectacle with its featured ships in waterfront berths, the most prominent being the heralded World War II aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown. This grand ship served in three wars and features vintage aircraft on board.
Designed for the utmost in privacy and comfort, the condos at Laurens Place feature private elevators from a gated, covered parking area, 10-foot ceilings with hardwood and granite details, and a pleasurable view of the old waterfront.
Inland, Laurens Place faces old Anson Field, which was a parade ground and military training area long ago during Charleston’s colonial period. It was here that units of South Carolina militia honed skills that would pay great dividends during the American Revolution, when South Carolina proved to be a key battleground that led to Independence.
Henry Laurens himself was captured by the British during the Revolution and held in the Tower of London. And after South Carolina troops successfully drove English troops and their leader, Lord Cornwallis to Yorktown for his defeat in 1781, Laurens was exchanged for Cornwallis in one of the culminating events of the fight for independence.
