New neighborhood plans would build 218 units by 82nd Parkway

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - More development is headed to the northern end of Myrtle Beach, where construction on a new shopping center off 82nd Parkway is about halfway done. Plans for a new neighborhood will go before the City of Myrtle Beach's Planning Commission. 

Living Dunes, it's called, includes 218 units. It's very similar to The Market Common. The plans include a mix of cottages, single-family homes and a handful of townhomes. It will all be built around large ponds with walking paths and bridges. Plus, of course, it is just a few blocks from the beach. The plans from the City of Myrtle Beach show the neighborhood is to be built on a currently undeveloped area between 82nd Parkway and Grand Dunes Boulevard.

The main difference between the Living Dunes plans and the Market Common is that there is much less commercial space in Living Dunes. Only a handful of the town homes will be what's called 'live-work'; a space to live on the upper levels, and a business on the ground level.

Living Dunes is intended to be an active community, according to the design team, where a homeowner can step outside the front door and have a nice stroll with pets or family.

With a Publix in the Village Shops at Grand Dunes across 82nd Parkway set to open in June, people around the area said they were pleased their part of town is seeing a boom in development.  

"We've been looking for a boost for quite some time, especially with all the open property in the area," David Owen, owner of Owens Liquors said. "This new development up here in the northern part of Myrtle Beach is really good for us, good for the economy. It's really bringing a lot of jobs to this part of town. And it's going to be really well for small businesses like ourselves."
