The Cottages at Longborough is a 42-unit complex of multi-family housing, offering 2 and 3 bedroom townhouse style condominiums situated north of Hampton Park. Each floor level is wood framed and the roof is designed out of structurally sound wood trusses. To give them the low country, “southern charm feel” that Charleston is known for, each unit offers 1 or 2 story exterior porches, and is supported on a masonry crawl space foundation. Additionally, the streets are lined with live oaks, and individual landscaping embellishes the walkways.
Due to the adjoining buildings, double-studded party walls between units were built to minimize sound transmission while also meeting the structural design requirements.
