SEIZE THE MOMENT
Gaillard Center is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Charleston can create a world class civic place, add revenues to the City, save taxpayers money, and – because of its unique timing – do all of this at a moment when construction costs are most advantageous. In fact, the cost is expected to be 25% less than it would have been 3 years ago, and 11% less than 5 years hence.
Furthermore, half the cost will be paid by private contributions!
That is why we should Seize the Moment!
