New six-story hotel planned for Mount Pleasant
An aging two-story hotel in Mount Pleasant could soon be replaced with a six-story accommodation.
A Charleston development group has plans to replace the aging 119-room Masters Inn at 300 Wingo Way, at the corner of McGrath Darby Boulevard near the base of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, with a 133-room Hilton Garden Inn.
The 3.75-acre property is owned by OTV Masters LLC, which bought the 27-year-old hotel for $3.75 million in July 2011.
The plans, which include a one-acre parcel fronting Johnnie Dodds Boulevard for a 5,000-square-foot undetermined restaurant, were filed with the state Department of Health and Environmental Control.
“Our timeline, we hope, is to be out of the ground no later than July,” said David Tart, a partner in the project with David Swentor, both developers with Premiere Development Group of Charleston. They are also partnering with OTV Masters LLC on the project.
Demolition of the existing hotel could take about a month, Tart said. Construction could take about a year to complete.
