Private Development Residential
Waterford Plantation, Horry County, SC - This is an 812-acre mixed-use Planned Unit Development (PUD) located in the International Paper Company’s “Carolina Forest”. This innovative project was the first project developed within Carolina Forest and DDC is very proud to have been involved by providing all planning and civil engineering services for the residential development.
The first challenge involved development of a land plan for the project surrounding the 335-acre golf course complex. Upon completion of the land plan, DDC developed a master water, sewer, and stormwater management plan for the project. DDC was also responsible for rezoning the entire tract to an R-4/PUD which allowed for construction of 3,250 units comprised of single-family, duplex and multi-family buildings on the 465-acres of property. Through our approach, the golf course was included in the PUD, thus overall project net density was increased, allowing the developer the flexibility required to ensure a successful project. Waterford Plantation’s success has set the tone for other projects in Carolina Forest.
