Grande Dunes community to add 2 neighborhoods

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.
