MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) - A new development
is coming to the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina at Patriots Point
on Charleston Harbor.
Leaders from Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina want to send a message: Patriots Point isn't just about that big aircraft carrier.
Officials from the resort,
the Patriots Point Development Authority Board and Town of Mount
Pleasant broke ground Friday on an 18 thousand square foot
It'll come complete with a restaurant to seat hundreds of
people, a rooftop bar and a dock. It will also include a private yacht club, fitness center and
marina store. But don't worry, we're told
the Charleston charm will still be there.
"It's gonna stick with the local Charleston theme and feel," said Director of Sales & Marketing Tracy Mitchell. "We're expecting to employ about 50 people so it's great for the jobs."
The development is near the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum that features the World War II aircraft carrier Yorktown. No word yet on when the building will be up and running.
