With the warm days of summer fast approaching, Carolina Park continues to shine as the region’s premier master-planned community. Over the past ten years, the maturation of this remarkable 1,700 acre community has been nothing less than spectacular, and very much in keeping with the overarching vision established more than a decade ago.
“From the start, we wanted to create a community where residents would have access to quality education, recreation, shopping, worship and work - a place that offered a truly exceptional way of life,” said Brian Keels, COO of Carolina Park Development. “We’re excited to see that vision come to life and look forward to what’s to come.”
Today, more than 1,200 families have chosen to call Carolina Park home. From the close-knit classic homes in The Village to the luxury and custom homes in Riverside, the demand for new homes in the community continues to accelerate. And it’s little wonder. Carolina Park is home to 5 award-winning schools, a 40,000 square foot public library, a fire/police station, full-service hospital, two pools, playgrounds, ponds, miles of hiking and biking paths and much more. And most recently, the community has welcomed a growing number of businesses and residential options that have only added to Carolina Park’s appeal.
“A few years back, Costco made the move to Carolina Park and CVS was right behind them,” said Keels. “Since then, we’ve welcomed a wide variety businesses, restaurants and retailers who are eager to both serve and become part of the community.”
Variety indeed. From Sweetgrass Pharmacy and Charleston ENT to Park West Veterinary Offices, professional services have jumped at the chance to establish a Carolina Park address. And at The Bend, a five-building retail and office development, a wonderful collection of shops, salons and eateries has opened their doors.
“Being able to ride your bike over to The Bend and grab an ice cream cone with the kids, or enjoy a meal with friends, or stop in to take a yoga class is something the residents have really embraced,” said Haley Cuzzell, Community Sales Manager. “And it seems like every week there’s something new popping up. It’s really exciting.”
Among the more significant things to pop up recently is Restore at Carolina Park, an innovative 55+ active adult community offering a true continuum of care to mature residents seeking a simple, maintenance-free and healthy lifestyle. Featuring single-family cottage homes, elegant 1 and 2-bedroom apartments for lease and a comprehensive assisted living/memory care center all in one location, Restore at Carolina Park offers a rich and rewarding lifestyle promising to make “your next fifty years your best fifty years.”
So, what’s next in Carolina Park? Currently, luxury builders Stanley Martin and Lennar are building and selling homes in Riverside. And later this year, a new waterfront custom homes neighborhood in Riverside will be introduced featuring homes from Cline Homes, Axon Homes, Homes By Dickerson and The Burton Company.
“Carolina Park has become more than just a place to live.” concluded Keels. “It’s a place to call home. To raise a family, build lasting friendships, celebrate life, and enjoy everything the Lowcountry has to offer.”
