The folks at Charleston’s newest development invited hundreds of people up to the neck on Thursday night to check out the new digs. The curiously-named loft-style condos are lean, green, and very industrial, with concrete floors and walls and exposed pipes. The bright green doors of each space open into a center courtyard, motel style, and some of the windows open to the center as well — arguably a better view than the industrial wasteland that makes up the neighborhood these days. The rooftop patio offered an expansive view of the peninsula, and a DJ was spinning to show just how cool the place is. (Now it would be really cool if they had a full-time DJ on the roof.) Taco Boy catered the event with tacos and giant, heavenly vats of guacamole and cheese dip. The final judgment between my friend and me is that we’d prefer to live in a single house further down the peninsula, but we wouldn’t mind having a boyfriend living at One Cool Blow. —Erica Jackson
