The Town of Hilton Head Island recently purchased two commercial buildings on a 5 1/2-acre lot, continuing its hopes to bring a University of South Carolina Beaufort satellite campus to Office Park Road. The Carolina Office Park development was purchased for $1,675,000. The town plans to purchase two more buildings to make way for the campus — the nearby Kiawah Building and the Time Warner Cable building on the corner of Office Park Road and Pope Avenue. Once purchased, all buildings will be demolished to make way for the new satellite campus, which will be home to USCB’s hospitality-management degree program and a brand of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. The town originally wanted the campus in the Coligny area but moved its focus to Office Park Road after residents in that area raised concerns about traffic.
