A Casino for Hardeeville?



A coalition of investors, developers and local officials outlined plans Wednesday for an Indian casino and resort in Hardeeville they said could be under construction within two years.

The proposal was first pitched last month at a meeting of the Jasper County and city of Hardeeville councils. It would be within the Hilton Head Lakes development on U.S. 278 and include a 400-room luxury hotel.

The developers and their consultants say the project would create 4,700 jobs statewide — including 2,250 on-site — and bring in $92 million in wages, salaries and benefits to Jasper County. They estimate the development would attract about 4.3 million visitors annually.

But before those guests can arrive, the complex’s developers need to clear some big hurdles.
