950-home development underway in southern SC
A new master-planned development with nearly 1,000 homes at buildout is opening in Hardeeville near Hilton Head in southern South Carolina.
Offered by homebuilder Toll Brothers, the gated Riverton Pointe community off of New River Parkway will feature 15 luxury single-story home designs on oversized lots.
The community’s new home collections range from about 1,680 square feet to 3,500 square feet.
Built on wooded, lake, golf course and estate-sized sites, home prices start in the mid-$300,000s.
Amenities include a pool, fitness center, tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, driving range and social events. Future amenities include an 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course scheduled to open in the fall, pro golf shop, clubhouse, café expanded fitness center and additional racquet sports courts.
Riverton Pointe is near U.S. Highway 278 and sits 14 miles from Hilton Head and 26 miles from Savannah, Ga.
Johnson Development Associates bought the 300-unit Monty Apartments on Mall Drive that were built during the past two years where a movie theater once stood next to North Charleston City Hall.

This week in real estate
+ Food and brew hall: The former Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant on South Market Street has been transformed into a new food and brew hall venue called Port of Call and will feature five different eateries.
+ Tea Farm annexation: The town of Ravenel wants to annex a huge tract of about 3,000 acres off Old Jacksonboro Road with a small part of it set aside for a new 400-unit housing development, but environmentalists say not so fast.
+ Dip in sales: Home sales across South Carolina dropped slightly in August as vacation season ended and school started back, but the dip was mainly because residential sales in August 2020 were strong following the economic lockdown a few months earlier.
Uptown North Charleston will include Topgolf, hotels, apartments, retail and dining in a mixed-used development that will take shape over the next year or so on International Boulevard near Tanger Outlets.
