The Post and Courier wrote about Parker Poe's plan to move into what will be the tallest office building on the Charleston peninsula, Morrison Yard. The building will be completed next year and is "unlike any other in a city that reveres history and architecture," according to the article. 

"The $71 million, 12-story Morrison Yard office structure near the Ravenel Bridge will be slightly nonparallel to Morrison Drive, be built 50 feet in the air on V-shaped pillars amid an open-air plaza and will resemble offset shipping containers, a nod to the site's maritime past," the article continues. 

The move will allow Parker Poe to design space for new trends in the legal industry, including more flexible work spaces and better video conferencing.

The article also notes Morrison Yard's focus on sustainability: "The building will include a rain garden, electric charging stations and courtyard, Additionally, elevators and restrooms will be installed along the western side to shield the building from the afternoon sun and help lower air conditioning cost."
