Plans for Beaufort Marina Moving Forward

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, S.C. -

Ideas for what to do with Beaufort's downtown marina are beginning to take shape.

Developers are meeting with local community groups as well as government agencies to determine just what is to be done with the four acres of parking lot at the waterfront.

Suggestions are currently being gathered, like having a mixed use retail, living, and hospitality building there with an open-air plaza.

Right now officials say they are trying to make the most people happy while also maintaining the culture of Historic Beaufort.

 "Is there a better use of the four and a half acres for the quality of life in the community than a paved parking lot? That's really the question we're asking, and frankly it's our job to come up with those ideas," said Jim Chaffin, one of the developers.

Nothing is concrete at this stage. Developers are still gathering community input, and will present a proposal to residents later in the year.
