Big Coleman Project Nears Start

Mixed-use development breaks ground Tuesday.

A major chunk of Coleman Boulevard real estate is about to get new life.

Developers will break ground Tuesday on The Boulevard, a mixed-used development that's bound to reshape Coleman Boulevard.

Located at 725 Coleman Blvd., the development combines residential and retail spaces with walkable streets and proximity to nearby restaurants, shopping, schools and the beach, according The Beach Company developers.

It’s the first major development along the boulevard since the town embarked on an aggressive plan to transform the four-lane thoroughfare into Mount Pleasant’s downtown.

Now just an empty lot behind a fence, the property was formerly the site of the Family Dollar, and prior to that, home to the Red & White Market and Rodenberg's Grocery.

The Boulevard will include 325 urban apartments. Residence amenities include gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, 9-foot to 12-foot ceilings, a commercial fitness center, courtyard pool and indoor/outdoor clubroom overlooking Coleman Boulevard.

The Boulevard will also offer entertainment, neighborhood shops and restaurants.

With construction kicking off this spring, The Boulevard anticipates its first units will be ready for move in by early 2013. An official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.
