As several Daniel Island businesses expand, construction of residential real estate keeps pace with the momentum. Several DI businesses that are growing include Sparc, BenefitFocus and the Daniel Island Animal Hospital. Details about these businesses are included below, but let’s talk real estate first.
David Weekley homes is the builder of the River Green Townhomes in the prestigious Daniel Island Park golf community. With two floorplans to choose from, the stately townhouses range in size from around 2,600 to 2,900 square feet. The customizable units feature gourmet kitchens, a sprawling private owner’s suite with spa-like bathroom stylings and a walk-in closet and high-end exterior details such as striking gas-lit lanterns.
New homes are popping up all over Smythe Park, including in the waterfront Mitchell Wharf section of the neighborhood. David Weekley has several new single-family homes under construction on Daniel Island Drive and Settlers Street. The company offers more than a dozen home plans for lot owners seeking a builder. Pulte Homes has an offering on Wando Landing Street, and John Wieland Homes has 12 new homes in the works. JacksonBuilt Custom Homes also just finished a custom home in Smythe Park.
On to the growing Daniel Island commercial sector…
Daniel Island Animal Hospital on Seven Farms Drive recently expanded into the old Island Town Café, which was adjacent to its current offices. Carried out by Suiter Construction, the project included a full re-do of the current facilities. The new facilities were unveiled on February 24, 2013.
In December 2012, insurance technology innovator Benefitfocus opened a new 80,000 square foot addition to its Daniel Island facility and announced plans to add 300 jobs over two years. The new building has space for just shy of 500 workers.
Most recently, rapidly growing software developer Sparc broke ground on an $11 million construction project to expand its existing offices on Clements Ferry Road. The tech company plans to add 300 new jobs to the Charleston economy.
