CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Three architectural teams have submitted proposals for a cruise terminal in Charleston that's expected to be finished next year.

The South Carolina State Ports Authority has plans to renovate a warehouse for a new terminal to serve Charleston's growing cruise business.

The proposals come from teams led by AECOM Transportation of Sunrise, Fla.; Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Inc. of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; and CH2M Hill, Inc. of Houston.

All three have converted buildings into cruise terminals and are working with local architects. The State Ports Authority is expected to select a team in March.

The cruise business generates about $37 million for the economy in a state where tourism is an $18.4 billion industry.
