Developers broke ground Wednesday for the new Kroger Marketplace that will anchor one end of Hilton Head Island’s new Shelter Cove Towne Center, formerly The Mall at Shelter Cove.
The 87,588 square foot Kroger will be the largest grocery store on Hilton Head. It will feature a Starbucks coffee kiosk; Murray’s Cheese Shop; a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating; fresh sushi; a walk-in beer cooler; a “growler filling station,” where people can fill up jugs with draft beer; a resident wine expert; a drive-through pharmacy; and an outdoor bicycle-repair station. Kroger is expected to open in early December of 2013 with the addition of other new mall tenants arriving as the center opens fully in 2014. Collins and Arnold Construction of Atlanta will build the store.
Mike Schlotman, Kroger chief financial officer said, “We see opportunity in the growing year-round population of this beautiful place … and in the millions of visitors that return year after year.”
Mayor Drew Laughlin called the development “a vote of confidence in the future of Hilton Head Island.”
The 42-acre Towne Center is estimated to cost $74 million dollars and will include 290,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. It will be built in three stages. The shopping area will be bisected by a walking area that will have views of Broad Creek and lead to ...read more

Yep, that’s right. The developers won final approval Tuesday to build a new outdoor mall to replace The Mall at Shelter Cove.
Architects Wood + Partners can rest a little easier. The Town of Hilton Head Island’s Design and Review Board unanimously approved the plans for our new outdoor mall.
It will be called Shelter Cove Towne Centre, a mixture of shops and cafes that will be a part of the revamped mall. The developers, Blanchard and Calhoun Commercial are delighted as well as property owners and guests of Hilton Head Island.
Demolition of the mall began on January 10. New construction will begin within the next 30 days. Unbelievable excitement abounds with all the locals. We have seen this in bigger metropolitan areas and wondered if it was ever possible on our “little island called Paradise.” Well, I’m here to announce proudly …. It is….!
We will have an outdoor mall with several single story shops and cafes set between a Kroger grocery store on one end and the existing Belk department store on the other.
Best of all is a walking area leading to views of Broad Creek that will bisect the mall.
The cost is expected to be around $40 million and feature 290,000 square feet of retail space which will be completed in two phases. Kroger will be completed first with opening in the fall of ...read more

We welcome The Don Ryan Center for Innovation!
When most people think of Hilton Head, we think of exquisitely maintained golf courses, clean expansive beaches, relaxing properties and everything perfect about a vacation. It is surprising that some of us do work here too, and we are proud to say we are ready for new business opportunities.
Debbie Lowman and I recently met Jordan Berliner who is the Director of The Don Ryan Center for Innovation at Buckwalter Place in Bluffton. Jordan generously spent time with us explaining how The Don Ryan Center came about, the type of businesses it is focused on and how The Center plans to grow. We found an exciting new source of business opportunity beginning to root itself in Bluffton and Hilton Head. The Don Ryan Center for Innovation is designed to support new technology company formation and development in Bluffton. The Center is a collaborative effort between the Town of Bluffton and Clemson University and is well supported by other area businesses and locals.
“Technology” has a lose definition at the Don Ryan Center for Innovation as you will see when you read about the new companies being fostered there; take a look at their website.
Thriving businesses will play an instrumental part in the strength of our community as we move forward. If you are looking for ...read more

While watching the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last April 29, no one ever imagined anything could top that. But this weekend we were all proven wrong. Everyone loves The Queen! It took over a year of planning, but it has all been worth it. What a celebration for a deserving queen who has served her people and all the world admirably for 60 years. As I become older, I appreciate what has gotten me to where I am. It was a delight to watch videos of The Queen when she was a young lady riding horses, being a mechanic during World War II. It made me appreciate her more and to appreciate age. She demonstrates “aging gracefully.” And myself for one don’t mind aging quite as much after watching the celebration. She is 86 years old and proves that life is worth living. The Diamond Jubilee Celebration started with a horse race, The Derby, on Saturday. Our Kentucky Derby with all the hats did not hold a candle to what was on show in London to mark the beginning of the Diamond Jubilee Celebration. On Sunday a live coverage of the 1,000 Flotilla Boats parade down the River Thames was a sight you would have to see to believe. Millions of people, small boats, dinghies, big boats. Yes, 1,000 boats going 4 miles per hour in a cold pouring rain to honor The Queen. The cold rain did not dampen the spirit of the British at all. ...read more
