Pawley’s Plaza Redevelopment Approved



The redevelopment of Pawleys Plaza got final approval from Georgetown County Council this week, but not before several pleas for the county to be mindful of the details.

Pawleys Island Mayor Bill Otis wants the developer, Sunbelt Ventures of Mount Pleasant, to have different elevations of the three main buildings that total nearly 110,000 square feet. He’s worried that a continuous roof line would make it look like a big-box store, which is what the community was so opposed to.

Otis also said the requirement of a Level 3 landscape buffer, which includes trees 3 inches in diameter, is insufficient. He said those trees would look like “matchsticks” in front of a 35-foot tall building. Waccamaw Neck resident Tom Stickler wants the county to make sure Sunbelt builds the homes that are shown on its site plan. A Supreme Court ruling requires Planned Developments to have mixed uses.
