Daniel Island Community Speakers Series with Matt Sloan

April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The Daniel Island Community Speaker’s Series will continue on Wednesday evening, April 21, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. The event will be held both in the ballroom at the Daniel Island Club and via a simultaneous Zoom presentation for those who may not yet be comfortable attending the event in person.

Our speaker that evening will be Matt Sloan, President of the Daniel Island Development Company. All of us have chosen to live on this beautiful island. Many new comers may not be that familiar with the development of the island. Given that the build-out is nearly complete, we thought it might be appropriate to hear from the man who had the vision and made it happen. Matt has been involved with the development of the island since the early 1990’s when DI was nothing more than quiet pastures and hunting grounds. He was around when the company purchased the island from the Guggenheim family. He managed to get it incorporated into the City of Charleston and beat out the cities of N. Charleston and Mt. Pleasant which also wanted to annex the island. And now he gets to see it as a place where people come from around the country (as well as the world) not only to live, but also to work, go to school, shop, dine, and be entertained.

In presenting an American Institute of Architects award to Matt, Charles Muldrow said, “Matt believes that development is not just about buildings and roads, but also about honoring the surrounding environment, being good stewards of natural resources, drawing people together in community, and bettering a region’s quality of life.” Matt’s vision is evident throughout Daniel Island and it carries forward into his subsequent projects like Carnes Crossroads in Summerville and Point Hope in the Cainhoy community.

The program will begin promptly at 7:00 pm and will conclude around 8:00 pm.
