Port Royal redevelopment delayed on SC coast
Associated Press
Thursday, March 8, 2012



PORT ROYAL — Plans to redevelop the Port of Port Royal with businesses and
homes have been delayed while the final purchase of the land is worked out.

The Beaufort Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/x1KPr4op ) there will be a
delay of about two months while developers finalize the purchase of the
52-acre tract from the South Carolina State Ports Authority.

Port Royal town manager Van Willis says that the $17 million purchase
requires the town to obtain about a quarter of a $4.5 million loan to build
roads, parks and put in drainage.

The town has a development agreement with the Port Royal Development Group.
Willis said town officials were not aware of the loan requirement until
about two weeks ago.
