A new 22-acre development on Daniel Island has been proposed to be built in phases along the waterfront. River Landing Village will be built at the end of River Landing Drive and Pier View Street and will be a mixed- use development to include 300 condominiums and townhomes, two new public-access piers, and commercial retail space and restaurants along the Wando River.
East West Partners, a Colorado real estate company that specializes in upscale residential developments (Denver, Vail Valley and Snowmass) is heading up the project. Recent projects that East West Partners built in the Lowcountry include the newest Tides condominium in Mount Pleasant, and the Gadsden and One Venue Range projects in Charleston.
According to the company’s mission statement they “intend to build a collection of buildings, scaled appropriately for a walkable, village scale setting, that encompass residential offerings, completed by retail and amenities where residents and patrons can spend time on the waterfront.”
The first phase of the River Landing Village will be a development of about 5.5 acres along the waterfront, to include 50 to 60 residences, and approximately 14,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, according to Miller Harper, managing partner for East West Partners South Carolina. The completion date expected in 2021. The first phase will include what planners call a “village core.”
Harper told the Post & Courier that “it’s one of the last great pieces of waterfront on the island. It will be a coastal-inspired destination and neighborhood. The collection of buildings will be scaled appropriately to those on River Landing Drive. Think small-to-medium-size, and not large buildings.” Harper said the rest of the project “will be market dependent. Our intent is to meet market demand.”
“Daniel Island is an incredible community,” he continued. It’s a great place to live, work and play. The residents of Daniel Island take great pride in where they live. We are careful to take the same level of care when designing a project within this community…We have assembled a world class team of design professionals that have spent an inordinate amount of time working on a design that we believe will only enhance the wonderful community that we are building within.”
The development is to be completed in five phases and will take 6 to 12 years once all the phases are built out. The exact timeline will depend on market demand, with the initial groundbreaking to begin within 6 months.
