The Beach Company, of Charleston, SC, announces that major renovations at Island Center on Isle of Palms wrapped up as Harris Teeter opened April 30. Owned by Pastime Amusement Company and managed by The Beach Company, the 55-year-old property underwent a major rehabilitation as the previous grocery building was demolished, and a brand new one was built to suit the specifications of a new Harris Teeter supermarket.
Isle of Palms residents and visitors will now have on-Island access to a full-service butcher’s market, farmers’ market produce, full-service floral department, artisan bakery, pharmacy and an extensive wine and beer selection.
Three new restaurants are also making their homes at Island Center. Bushido Japanese fusion restaurant, Yobe Yogurt, and Pizza Hut open in May.
“The Isle of Palms deserves a Class A shopping center in their own neighborhood,” said Leonard Way, Vice President of Asset and Property Management of The Beach Company. “The upgrades at Island Center were planned to better serve the Isle of Palms community.”
The Island Center renovations also included new roofs and a new façade, the demolition of a former bank building, three tenant relocations and an additional building rehabilitation. One 2,000 sf outparcel remains available for lease.
