Carolina Forest II a.k.a. (Carolina Station)

By
Real Estate Agent with Coastal Palmetto Realty LLC

For those of you not familiar with our area Carolina Forest is a mega development that has and will continue to choke the infrastructure of our county.  That being said International Paper (the developers of Carolina Forest) announced another mega development in our area Carolina Station

Folks, I'm not against developers or development.  I developed property and advise others daily on developing their property; However, I would like to see this done responsibly.  International Paper promises to learn from the mistakes of Carolina Forest, but promises are often made and forgotten.  I own property adjacent to this project and would love to see it's value skyrocket.  I don't plan on ever selling it, but I like the fact the bank thinks its valuable.  18,000 homes, That is around 50,000 people, on 6,000 acres.  Do the numbers.  It's a monster project to undertake.  Let's make sure we do it the right way the first time that is all we ask....

Stay tuned to this blog I promise to keep you all up to date on the rezoning meetings.  If you would like to come the public is invited.  First meeting in Nov. 1, 2007 Conway Court House on second ave in conway, SC.

Sorry you missed it.  Not quite the fireworks I expected, but a good showing none the less.  The second reading will be Dec. 6.

Hi Brandon, I used to come to Myrtle Beach all the time.  We had a plant in Conway.  You have a great area....developments of that size need to be done with real planning and care.  I look forward to your next post after the Dec. 6 meeting.  Maybe folks will have had time to absorb the magnitude of this project.  Nice post.

I'm glad you're going to be keeping us updated.  I have heard the name Carolina Station but not much else about it.  I am not the hugest fan of Carolina Forest but some of our clients love it.  Hopefully Carolina Station will not be more of the same.
