Charleston partner Lindsay Van Slambrook has been elected Chair of the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) – Small for the City of Charleston. Leading one of the two boards comprising the BAR, Van Slambrook shepherds the effort to review all new construction, alterations, renovations, and demolitions for small projects in the City of Charleston.
Established in 1931, the BAR's purpose is "the preservation and protection of the old historic or architecturally worthy structures and quaint neighborhoods which impart a distinct aspect to the city and which serve as visible reminders of the historical and cultural heritage of the city, the state, and the nation," according to the City of Charleston Zoning Ordinance. The BAR plays a huge role in the development and maintenance of Charleston, a city growing at an exponential pace. Charleston partner Jay Claypoole also served as Chair of the BAR – Small from 2017 to 2020.
Van Slambrook was elevated to the firm's partnership in early January. She focuses her practice on commercial real estate development and land use, regularly representing developers, property owners, and lenders in a wide range of commercial real estate and business matters. Van Slambrook earned her JD from Emory University School of Law and her BA in political science from Clemson University.
