Mirroring Old Town Bluffton

These properties are strategically located with both parcels fronting on the May River Road (Hwy 46) with ingress and egress along Highway 46. The first parcel consists 3.02+/-acres situated on the northern side of May River Road for 133.40' and running to Mellichamp Drive with frontage on Mellichamp Drive of 221.38' again with ingress and egress on Mellichamp Drive. This property borders the Promenade on its western side for the full length of both properties.

The Promenade is a continuation of Old Town Bluffton's main street - Calhoun Street. A very successful and vibrant live, work and play development, the Promenade features a variety of unique retail businesses, boutique shops, raw oyster and wine bars, and specialty restaurants ranging from the very casual to up-scale white tablecloth establishments. The Promenade is recognized as a leader and trend setter in design and activity for Bluffton and numerous other small towns in the United States.

This adjacent site to the Promenade of 3.02 +/-acres has natural appeal and the public need and demand for it is to be developed commercially with a parking garage, B&B or small luxury hotel, along with numerous other retail opportunities. (See Conceptuals)

The 1.44+/-acre tract on the southern side of Highway 46 has major highway frontage on May River Road (Hwy 46) of 350.33' and it is the major intersection of Hwy 46 and Calhoun Street, then running down Calhoun Street for 130'. Calhoun Street is the vanguard of Bluffton's social, artistic and riverside community. This prime property is unique in the fact that it sits on the most significant corner of Calhoun Street and May River Road (Hwy 46) across the street from the Promenade. This site is ideally suited for a two (2) story general store with porches etc, connecting retail and offices with a blend of bridges and boardwalks. (See Conceptuals)

Presently, the above properties fall under the Town of Bluffton's Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). They are permitted "by right", to be commercially developed and are zoned NEIGHBORHOOD CORE HISTORIC DISTRICT (NCHD).

These properties can be purchased in total or by individual parcels, subject to an agreement and understanding of use for the property by the landowner and the developer/investor.
