Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Developers in Myrtle Beach are bringing a wave of single-family homes to the Grande Dunes community with the addition of a new subdivision.
Officials with Leonard, Grigg & Associates, LLC and Traditional Homebuilders unveiled plans Tuesday morning for the development of Cipriana Park, a 67 acre community expected to add 182 single-family homes to the Grande Dunes.
The new development will be located on Grande Dunes Boulevard between US-17 Bypass and US-17 Business.
"Cipriana Park is in one of the best locations in our area, and it's within the premier amenitized community along the Grand Strand," said Roger Grigg, president of local real estate and development firm Leonard, Grigg & Associates, LLC.
Homes in Cipriana Park will be developed in four major phases, beginning with the construction of two model homes. The model homes, scheduled to be completed by January 2011, will lead the way for the first phase of construction that includes 66 homes.
Traditional Homebuilders, a Little River-based company helping to construct the community, has offered potential homeowners five varieties of housing layouts. The homes range from 2,030 square feet to 2,468 square feet.
"We're going to start out with five models and then we expect to offer more models later," Warren Smith, vice president of Traditional Homebuilders, said. "The first five models will each have three bedrooms, two baths and two-car garages."
While the announcement of Cipriana Park comes as positive news for the Grand Strand, Burroughs & Chapin CEO Jim Apple said Cipriana Park signals the beginning of better things to come.
"With everything happening in our world over the last couple of years, we had to put our master plan on pause," Apple said. "Now we're moving forward again. In the next few years, there will be other communities that follow, and more and more people to enjoy the Grande Dunes amenities."
Apple said Burroughs & Chapin created Cipriana Park to target homebuyers looking for a quality neighborhood at an affordable price. The company envisioned the Grande Dunes to become a community filled with a variety of residential offerings at a number of different price points.
"We saw the 2,200 acres at Grande Dunes accommodating a variety of neighbors and product types," Apple added. "Cipriana Park moves us along that path."
Officials have priced the single-family homes to vary between $270,000 and $390,000.
