coastal-carolina-university_2014-10-21_14-34-06.921A new center at Coastal Carolina University, established through a major gift from Tony and Carrie Grant of Murrells Inlet, will serve as an information hub for real estate and economic data. In recognition of their generosity, the center will be named the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economic Development and will be housed in CCU’s E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration.

The center will provide an industry-focused, collaborative environment where students, faculty members and the real estate industry can gain and share knowledge, information and international real estate business experiences. It will conduct and publish research on real estate and economic trends and host a variety of related events, serving as a bridge between CCU and the community. The center will also give faculty and students the opportunity to conduct applied research projects for local businesses, organizations and government agencies.

“The visionary gift provided by Tony and Carrie Grant will enable the Wall College to offer enhanced opportunities in the areas of commercial, industrial and residential real estate development,” said Barbara Ritter, Ph.D., Wall College of Business dean. “Through their extraordinary generosity, the Grants will touch the lives of many students, providing scholarships, internships, and international student exchange and study tours focused on real estate development. The opportunities afforded by the Grant Center will not only assist in attracting and retaining the highest caliber of students, but will also contribute to the Wall College’s growing reputation for preparing competitive students in a global market.”

The city last studied downtown marketing strategy in 2007, but much has changed since then. The idea of a downtown hotel, Mayor Alys Lawson said at a Monday morning meeting, “is not a new thing. It’s something that needs to be revived.”

A committee overseeing the two studies and five of seven City Council members met with representatives of the two firms that will do the studying for an initial overview of the scope of their work and how it will be done.
