CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - After strong opposition to an initial plan, a developer is going back before Charleston officials with a new concept for redeveloping seven acres in the city’s historic district.

The Beach Co. had wanted to replace a 14-story building with more than 450 apartments in three new buildings. But opponents said the project was too big and would cause too much traffic.

On Wednesday, the developers go back before the city Board of Architectural Review with plans for an 18-story tower with luxury apartments, retail and office space and a parking garage.

In February, more than 200 people turned out for a city planning commission meeting on the redevelopment and so many jammed the room the session had to be postponed.

The meeting is being held in a high school auditorium.
