A vacant East End apartment building adjacent to Arlington Court could soon end up in the hands of the Charleston Urban Renewal Authority.
Robert Johns, an attorney who is affiliated with the building’s ownership, said his company has made an offer to sell 1212 Quarrier St. to the authority.
“It’d be a great idea,” he said. “It’d really work out well if someone went in there and fixed it up. CURA is the best one in that position.”
The now-dilapidated building was historically known as the Mount Vernon Apartments, and records indicate the building once had as many as 22 units.
If the authority purchases the building, it may plan to conduct rehabilitation efforts to make the building marketable to private investors.
The authority board meets at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Morrison Building, 815 Quarrier St., Suite 244. Authority meetings are open to the public.
