Ground Broken for Beaufort’s MidTown Square

By

– Beaufort Gazette

A mostly vacant block-and-a-half in the Northwest Quadrant neighborhood is set for long-awaited redevelopment, despite the concerns of some historic preservationists that the approval process for MidTown Square will set a bad precedent.

Developers recently broke ground on a project in the heart of historic Beaufort that, if built to capacity, would include as many as 16 single-family homes and six live-work units.

MidTown Square will fill almost 2 acres that have sat empty for years. It’s also the first plan approved under the city’s new Bladen Street redevelopment district zoning code — a form-based code that focuses more on what structures look like and less on how they are used. It will allow developers to bypass city review boards, which some preservationists oppose.
