Mount Pleasant SC: Living with Views of the Cooper River

View of Ravenel Bridge and Cooper River Charleston SC

As residents living in and around the city of Charleston SC you might think that we become immune to the breathtaking array of water views that go along with living in the lowcountry.  From quiet, ever-changing marsh views, to sweeping harbor views, to vast Atlantic Ocean views we are indeed lucky enough to experience them all.  But there is nothing quite like living alongside the Cooper River. Not only is its crowning jewel the engineering marvel of the Ravenel Bridge, but it is also the gateway to Charleston’s thriving container ship industry as the massive cargo ships use this important channel to navigate to the ports along the Wando and upper Cooper Rivers.

This is the uniquely desirable setting of the Tides, luxury condominiums located at the junction where the Wando and Cooper Rivers meet and flow into the Charleston Harbor. From here you can sometimes hear the low hum of the container ship engines as they slow to approach the port docks around the bend. The entire Tides site is elevated 12 feet above grade providing dramatic river and marsh views from each of these grand condominium buildings. The Tides condominiums are strategically positioned so that all residents, regardless of location, will enjoy views of the water - which means that this is waterfront living at its highest level ... no pun intended!  

"What makes living in the Tides so desirable?" In the case of the Tides it starts with the age-old reason that makes any piece of real estate incredibly desirable - location, location, location!  Located in the “sweet spot” of Mount Pleasant, where Waterfront Park is tucked under the base of the Ravenel Bridge. This area of Mount Pleasant offers upscale living and a walk or bike everywhere lifestyle. From the Tides you are just minutes away from the heart of historic downtown Charleston, the beaches of Isle of Palms and Sullivan's Island, Shem Creek, Patriot's Point, Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Harris Teeter and a variety of shopping and dining options.  

Buildings I, II & III are nestled on an 80-acre site adjacent to breathtaking lowcountry marsh.  Each building consists of 6 stories above secured parking with homes from the $500's to over $2M - Where else in Charleston can you live in a 6th floor Penthouse with a private rooftop terrace and phenomenal views of the Harbor?

This is a "come home to everything" way of life that offers a resort lifestyle feel.  The amenities at Tides include state-of-the-art fitness center with views of the Charleston Harbor, private sauna and steamroom as well as ladies & men's dressing rooms.  There is a slope-entry, Caribbean style pool, hot tub, Summer Kitchen, and gas grills.  Walking trails go around the perimeter of the property connecting with the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park, Ravenel Bridge and Patriot's Point.
