West Ashley or, as it is more formally known, West of the Ashley is not a city, but rather a vibrant district of Charleston located on ‘the other side’ of the Ashley River. Its residents account for almost half of the city’s 120,000+ residents. West Ashley is flanked by the scenic waterfront vistas and marshes of the Ashley and Stono Rivers and colored by its famed ancient moss-draped oak trees. Its initial neighborhoods were developed in the 1950s with its largest growth occurring throughout the 1970s and 80s. Its commercial and residential popularity exploded with the building of Interstate 526 in the early 1980s and the Glenn McConnell Parkway in the 1990s. Today, it boasts inviting neighborhoods and funky retailers and restaurants as well as big box retailers and its own ‘auto mile.’ West Ashley is also home to great natural beauty and a large slice of history. Middleton Place, Ashley Hall, and Magnolia Plantation are situated there as is Charles Towne Landing.


This charming area of Charleston is a place that offers many lifestyle perks. As investors, it was easy to see why West Ashley was a desirable place to buy/renovate/sell, but as first-time home buyers, it was obvious that West Ashley was also the perfect place for us to buy our starter home.

The introduction of Whole Foods to West Ashley has been hot gossip in the past few months and something that has increased interest in the area. A huge new shopping center is also on the cards, meaning that we finally have a better alternative to the neglected and mostly vacant Citadel Mall. We still have a way to go on this front, but it’s certainly promising!  Charleston’s elected Mayor has his home in West Ashley and has made the revitalization of this area part of his “First 100 Days ” agenda, which has spurred increased interest from retailers and developers who, up to now, would probably have had areas like Mount Pleasant or Summerville in their sights.
