The Cultural Hub of Daniel Island

The 890 Project (working title only) is the culmination of a vision to create a cultural destination on Daniel Island. The first phase began in 2016, with the mixed used office-retail building housing Dockery's restaurant, completed in 2017. This new event hall constitutes the second and final phase of this project and will bring an active and thriving cultural and dining experience on Daniel Island, hosting private events and public performances, as well as incorporating pedestian-friendly retail space to support and strengthen venue activities.

Purposefully designed to serve a variety of functions within its flexible event space, uses of the building range from small and large corporate lunches to evening performances ranging from intimate musical concerts, comedy acts, and some semi-staged performances, attracting national and regional performers to the venue. The 890 Project will also host performances presented by local jazz, string, and acoustic groups.
