MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Grande Dunes community is expanding with two residential neighborhoods.

LStar, the owner of Grande Dunes, announced the expansion Friday. The new developments will be located within the Grande Dunes community.

Construction is projected to break ground in early March with lots sized 85' to 120' in width, according to the real estate investment firm.

LStar said it is working with a select group of builders for the properties. The Grande Dunes Properties staff will begin taking reservations for these lots shortly.

LStar also submitted plans this week for another new neighborhood in Grande Dunes located near the Claire Chapin Epps YMCA, near 62nd Avenue.

The first phase, consisting of 164 single-family homes, is expected to begin construction in mid-2015.

The creation of the new neighborhoods follows on an unprecedented surge in home construction in Grande Dunes. Currently, there are 81 homes under construction, representing more than $40 million in construction in the community, according to LStar. This represents the most new home building activity the community has ever experienced at one time.

WMBF News anchor Christel Bell is finding out what Grande Dunes homeowners think about adding new homes/neighborhoods, how doing so could impact property taxes, what these homes will look like. Tune in at 11 p.m. for a full report.

    MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - As the heat index climbs above 100, the temperature reading on your car's dashboard will likely show an even higher number. The temperature is actually coming from a tool called a "thermistor." Instead of a normal thermometer which uses mercury, the thermistor tracks the change in the heat, based on the electrical charge that temperatures cause.  Thermistors are actually very accurate, but the reading in your car is usually inaccurate because ...
