Silicon Harbor – High Tech Charleston on the Move
Many area residents are unaware of the high tech presence in our wonderful city and surrounding area. Over the last decade, in its then infancy, Charleston is fast becoming known nationally as the Silicon Valley of the east.
These high tech companies have chosen Charleston for all the reasons that influence the relocation decisions of other companies and residents. They come because of the history, architectural and scenic beauty, wonderful climate and recreational opportunities and ready access to air travel provided by the upgraded Charleston International Airport. The expanding presence of these companies has also had positive effects on our real estate values.
The rise of this industry began with little notice taken by most of the general public, but has become a driving force for Charleston. It has been mutually beneficial to these companies and the city at large and has provided another source of interest in our area from around the country and the world.
In the coming weeks, we’ll explore the industry and the companies that now call Charleston and the Low Country home.
In the meantime, please call me to fulfill your real estate needs.
