Whitehall Plantation development plans include neighborhood with 'downtown Beaufort character'

    Whitehall Plantation on the Lady’s Island side of the Woods Memorial Bridge from downtown Beaufort will be looking quite differently in the not-so-far-off future. Tully, LLC’s Steven J. Tully and 303 Associates’ Dick Stewart, two of the leading local real estate developers known for high quality urban infill and redevelopment, announced on Thursday the formation of Whitehall Park, LLC, and a shared vision for the future of the site.

    Uniting top-tier local development talent, Whitehall Park, LLC aims to redevelop the 19 Acre Whitehall property in downtown Beaufort into a traditional single family residential waterfront neighborhood.

    Whitehall i s a 19+ acre tract of land in the City of Beaufort on the waterfront that is easily walkable to Downtown Beaufort and Bay Street commercial district. The Whitehall Property has seen a number of ownership changes and at least one high density mixed use plan over the years. Hotels and restaurants have also been considered for this site over the years.

    The property has been sitting basically abandoned and in blighted condition since the real estate market crash in 2008 and has been the site for a local festival, and not much else at all.

    Whitehall Park plans to redevelop this infill property in a manner that compliments the character of historic Downtown Beaufort and create a new great, walkable neighborhood within the City of Beaufort.
