Mt. Pleasant breaks ground on 23-acre, $40 million development

There are plenty of road construction projects going on and several new businesses are already popping up in Mt. Pleasant.

The town will also begin work on 23-acre development that will include apartments, stores and restaurants.

At 11 a.m. Tuesday, Mt. Pleasant Mayor Billy Swails and members of the town council will be at a groundbreaking ceremony for the start of a 23-acre development project worth $40 million.

The project is located at Highway 17 and Porcher's Bluff called "Gregorie Ferry Landing."

The first phase of the project will be a 10-acre, 240-unit class "A", four-story apartment complex with ground level retail and office space.

Over the last few months construction has started on new restaurants, banks and apartments in Mt. Pleasant. The town known as the All-American city is one of the fastest growing in the Lowcountry.

The new mixed development plan will add even more retail, restaurant, medical and professional office use for folks along Highway 17.

The new Shem Creek Park is set to be completed by fall with public access to shrimp decks and green space.
