Mt. Pleasant breaking ground on Coleman Blvd. project

MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - New life is coming to a busy stretch of Mt. Pleasant. Construction crews will break ground on the town's latest project at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The development will take place on the site of the old Family Dollar store. The new project is called "The Boulevard" and it will combine residential and retail spaces.

The project is the first major development in the area since the town decided to start working on a plan to transform the four-lane road into Mt. Pleasant's downtown area.

The Boulevard will include 325 apartments along with entertainment, shops and restaurants.

The first units will be ready for move-in by early next year.
