A newly proposed hotel would be one of the first on Johns Island if it comes to fruition.
New Leaf Builders is proposing a 55,000-square-foot lodging, with an unspecified number of guest rooms, according to plans reviewed last week by the city of Charleston’s Technical Review Committee, typically the first official stop in the permitting process.
The hotel is part of a larger mixed-used development to be called Jubilee. It includes 65 residential units, three restaurants and retail and office space.
The 3.27-acre property at 2935 Maybank Highway is just west of River Road. It was annexed into the city in 2017.
New Leaf did not respond to requests for comment about its plans last week. The company, which is headquartered on Johns Island, not far from the Jubilee site, builds homes in several residential developments in the Charleston region and in the Wilmington, N.C., market, according to its website.
The first hotel on Johns Island is well on its way. The Dunlin is set to open this summer at Kiawah River, a master-planned development off Betsy Kerrison Parkway. The luxury Auberge-operated boutique inn will offer guests 72 rooms, 19 villas, riverfront dining and a full-service spa, among other amenities.
The International African American Museum is once again offering free admission, this time as part of a public celebration on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Registration for a timeslot is required for the waiver for tickets that are good from noon to 5 p.m. on Jan. 15. Local vendors, food trucks and other activities will be on the grounds of the IAAM, which opened its doors in June.
Earlier this month, the waterfront museum next to the Charleston Maritime Center offered free admission to commemorate Emancipation Day on Jan. 1.
State utility regulators have approved a discount electricity deal for the secretive owner of a $510 million data center proposed near the Pine Hill Business Campus west of Summerville.
The S.C. Public Service Commission issued its decision Feb. 8 allowing Dominion Energy South Carolina to supply power to the mystery company, which has not been identified except by a series of aliases. They include Autumn Timber LLC, Project Dawson and Mallard LLC.
Dominion will provide a special “economic development rider” rate that amounts to 6 cents for every kilowatt hour of power, or less than half the 14 cents that residential customers pay, according to a heavily redacted public version of the service contract.
The commission approved the deal with Mallard LLC after the S.C. Office of Regulatory Staff, which looks out for the public’s interest in utility matters, said it had no objection.
A directive by the commission will require the Dorchester County data center’s operator to file an annual report to ensure the power deal is self-sufficient and not being subsidized by Dominion’s other customers.
“According to Mallard, it will invest a significant amount of capital in its data center, which will result in the creation of many new jobs in South Carolina,” the Richmond, Va.-based utility said in a letter to state regulators.
Mallard is believed to be affiliated with a major technology infrastructure investor, possibly Google, but Dorchester County officials have declined to comment on the data center’s ownership.
The contract with Dominion provides some potential clues. The billing address matches the Delaware address that Google has used for data centers it has built in other parts of the country and the person identified as Mallard’s manager has the same name as Google’s director of corporate strategy.
Dorchester County Council took steps last week to resolve a zoning issue that was holding up the project. It removed 231 acres adjacent to the Pine Hill Business Campus from a development agreement hammered out more than a decade ago by a previous landowner and rezoned the property for industrial use.

Charleston remains a popular destination, and the city’s expanding luxury hotel scene reflects that trend.
California-based Auberge Resorts Collection plans to debut its first planned luxury hotel in South Carolina come 2024 in the form of The Dunlin, located within the Kiawah River master-planned community on Johns Island.
“The Dunlin will offer an unforgettable escape where guests can immerse themselves in the pristine natural setting of Johns Island and the culturally rich attractions of Charleston,” Auberge Chairman Dan Friedkin said in a statement.
The Dunlin property will include 72 cottage-style guest rooms and suites and 19 villas, as well as a main lodge and porch, great rooms and a library lounge. Amenities encompass a pool with cabanas, full-service spa, community farmstead, and access to the community’s Spring House riverfront swim and fitness facilities.
A riverfront restaurant with outdoor deck will also be available, as will two event spaces, including a 10,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor event hall.
“We are pleased to partner with Auberge Resorts Collection to create The Dunlin, which will be one of the most remarkable new resorts in the country,” Beach Co. CEO John Darby said. “Auberge has a terrific track record of creating the most unique hospitality experiences in the world, and this endeavor’s intimate setting will bring highly personalized service with a coastal experience inspired by the local environment.”
Built into the Kiawah River community, which puts emphasis in natural surrounding elements, The Dunlin will consist of 2,000 acres of land with 20 miles of riverfront nature trails and marshlands. Guests will be able to participate in nature excursions on the property, including fly fishing, crabbing and boating, as well as paddle boarding, hiking and biking.
Architect Robert Glazier was chosen to design the resort, and Amanda Lindroth of Lindroth Design will lead the interior design of the property.
Construction financing was provided by United Bank’s Charleston offices.

The Charleston County Aviation Authority and Lowcountry Land Trust have announced in a news release the permanent protection of a 90-acre site once threatened by development in the heart of Johns Island.
The action comes after years of collaboration through the Johns Island Community Conservation Initiative, a partnership of The Center for Heirs’ Property Preservation, Coastal Conservation League, Lowcountry Land Trust, and Open Space Institute, a news release stated.
Positioned at the mouth of Burden Creek, only a few feet above sea level, and sitting along Charleston’s Urban Growth Boundary adjacent to the Charleston Executive Airport, Oakville-Burden Creek’s 90 acres were once marked for development, the release stated. Despite extensive discussion about the perils of developing flood-prone areas and vocal community opposition, zoning laws allowed for the construction of over 200 houses on the property, according to the release.
In 2021, Charleston County Aviation Authority purchased the land, and last month, the property was permanently protected under a conservation easement placed by Lowcountry Land Trust, the release stated. Funding for the purchase of the conservation easement was provided by South Carolina Conservation Bank and Charleston County Greenbelt Program.
“The protection of Oakville-Burden Creek represents the power of collective work and reinforces the integrity of Johns Island’s historical, natural, and rural heritage resources and guarantees that development will never threaten Burden Creek again,” said Ashley Demosthenes, president and CEO, Lowcountry Land Trust, in the release. “A broad base of partnerships and relationships truly made this effort possible.”
The property protection not only offers benefits for quality of life and conservation, but also it plays a role to ensure incompatible uses don’t occur immediately adjacent to an airport, according to the release.
“The Aviation Authority remains cognizant of the need to preserve the environment while at the same time allowing for development and growth,” said Elliott Summey, CEO and executive director, Charleston County Aviation Authority, in the release. “The greenspace north of the airport will enhance the protection of land allowing the Authority to potentially create a future runway within the airfield footprint, acting as a buffer zone for safety and operational purposes.”
Lowcountry Land Trust, which in the past has collaborated with entities such as Boeing, Volvo and the South Carolina Ports Authority, holds the conservation easement, according to the releaese.
The conservation easement comes at a critical moment as Johns Island’s agriculturally zoned farmland and forest properties, some close to Oakville-Burden Creek and the Urban Growth Boundary, are constantly threatened by development, the release stated.
“Permanent conservation of the open space along the edge of the Urban Growth Boundary helps stabilize traditional rural communities by preventing suburban sprawl and the associated increase in taxes and service fees,” Michelle Sinkler, special projects director for the Open Space Institute, said in the release.

JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County held a public hearing Tuesday night to discuss and hear from anyone interested in the development of a large medical village on Johns Island.
The planned development, located between 4357 and 4365 Betsy Kerrison Parkway, called the Island Park Medical Village would take up more than 17 acres.
The medical village has been a topic among residents of the islands for months now with polarizing opinions supporting and against the development.
More than 30 people spoke during public comment and hundreds of letters were sent to the council in opposition.
Developers are requesting to rezone the land from low-density residential to large-scale medical office park with almost 160,000 maximum square feet of business space.
The medical village was proposed to Charleston County Planning Commission Members back on November 13 with all 7 members denying the zoning request.
Tuesday night, the questions raised included what types of medical options and concerns about traffic.
“We do agree that we need medical facilities, that we do need access,” Long-time Johns Island Resident, Tamara Butler, says. “My question is just what kinds of medical facilities are going to be there and what services are going to be provided.”
Almost 900 property owners on Kiawah Island were surveyed with 80% saying they are against the medical village and think the size of the project is too large.
“In this particular instance, the site of it, the location, the scope and the scale, feels out of character with the area of the island,” Lowcountry Land Trust President Ashley Demosthenes says.
However some community members want the development, sharing why the area needs accessible medical facilities closer to their homes.
“We lack health care. So, this project, the wellness village, actually helps alleviate a lot of that for us because now we’re going to go in a different direction,” Long-time Johns Island Resident, Jim Hart, says.
Developers say they have held meetings to hear from the community about what they want out of the project, and have reduced the project’s size by 25%.
“We care about the community. All we want to do is to provide a development that meets the needs of the people, to curtail the traffic and to allow people to have a choice,” project developer Jill Skerchek says.
With no action being taken, the developers will present the plan again in two weeks to the county council with any possible changes they make in the meantime.

Charleston County Council members suggested there was an urgent need to approve $75 million last year to continue planning and buying rights of way for the Interstate 526 extension project.

Charleston County Council members suggested there was an urgent need to approve $75 million last year to continue planning and buying rights of way for the Interstate 526 extension project. Supporters claimed the money was needed to keep the project on track in anticipation that voters would approve a multibillion-dollar financing plan for it this November.
It turns out that little to none of that money has been spent. And very little might be spent until — and unless — county voters agree to extend a half-cent sales tax that would generate the additional $2 billion needed to complete what might be the single-most controversial highway project in the county’s history.
That’s actually a good thing, as further spending on 526 before the November vote likely would be a waste. But the disappointing aspect is while county officials apparently have been gaslighting voters as to the need for immediate funding for the Mark Clark, they have failed to make meaningful progress on the smaller-scale projects that are far less difficult to build and could provide congestion relief sooner, such as the pitchforks planned north and south of Maybank Highway, from the Stono River to River Road. Nor has the county found a way to add turn lanes at Main Road and St. Johns High or at Main and Chisolm, two other easily fixed chokepoints.
It’s hard to believe this isn’t an intentional strategy to perpetuate the wrongheaded notion that Johns Island needs a $2-billion-plus ribbon of concrete to solve its congestion problems. That’s simply not the case; that money would be much better spent on the more immediate improvements, and the county still would have more than $1 billion left over for conservation work that could ensure the island keeps at least some of its rural character. While the island’s southern half gets some protection from a rural-urban boundary line, we have seen more than one recent proposal on the rural side of the line that many considered too much, too dense. Don’t expect proposals such as the controversial health and wellness village planned at Bohicket Road and Betsy Kerrison Parkway to go away until the southern end is protected by conservation deals, not just a zoning line.
Most people recognize that traffic congestion is considered Johns Island’s No. 1 challenge, but it wasn’t until last November that Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg and a few Charleston County Council members held a news conference to announce their firm commitment to add lanes to Maybank Highway between the Stono River and River Road, and revive plans for a southern pitchfork that would create a new road off Maybank between the Stono River bridge and River Road and to realign Cane Slash Road to meet up better with that new southern pitchfork. County Council should express a similar sense of urgency to get them funded, perhaps with some of the $75 million that won’t be spent this year.
Diverting that money should not harm I-526, which remains in limbo until November at the earliest. And who knows? The November’s sales tax referendum, which is expected to feature 526 prominently, could finally be the fatal blow to this too-long-lived zombie project.
Johns Island has seen worsening congestion not only because of its growth but also because the specter of 526′s extension has slowed any meaningful progress on the smaller but still significant improvements that would help ease congestion. These smaller projects will be needed regardless of what happens on Nov. 5; those who truly care about addressing Johns Island’s traffic should focus on getting them built as quickly as they can.
