Bluffton Strikes Deal On Buckwalter Place Construction

Bluffton Mayor Lisa Sulka recently announced the signing of a public-private partnership agreement between the town of Bluffton, the Bluffton Public Development Corporation and Southeastern Development Associates (formerly known as Blanchard & Calhoun Commercial) that will further develop Buckwalter Place Commerce Park.

The agreement provides for continued public infrastructure investment supportive of the multi-county commerce park, which is the home of eviCore Healthcare’s corporate headquarters (formerly known as CareCore National), the Don Ryan Center for Innovation and the town’s Law Enforcement Center. The agreement establishes the preliminary framework of the development and now both parties can proceed with site planning and permitting. The developer plans to build a 113,000-square-foot Kroger Marketplace that will be surrounded by other retailers and apartments.
