Hilton Head Island Mayor David Bennett has a new proposal for planned apartments along Broad Creek at Shelter Cove Towne Centre. Instead of one large apartment complex, Bennett wants to split the development into two smaller four-story buildings on either side of Veterans Memorial Park.
One building would have 130 to 140 units and the other would have 100 to 110 units; each building would also have its own parking. The land swap involved would allow the park to expand to make room for another pavilion, a picnic shelter and 60 new parking spaces. When the new plans are submitted, town staff, the Planning Commission and Town Council will decide to either accept the new plan or resort to the old plans.
