HILTON HEAD ISLAND — A group of Chinese property developers has visited Hilton Head Island to get some ideas for a resort island on the Pacific Ocean.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reported (http://bit.ly/NlrnxZ) that Tuesday’s visit came after a Bluffton businessman talked with them during a boat show in Shanghai earlier this year.

Ed Modzelewski says the group had recently acquired a 22-mile stretch on the Pacific Ocean and wanted to develop an ecologically responsible resort.

Modzelewski chairs Applied Technology and Management Inc., a coastal consulting firm with offices on Hilton Head Island and Charleston.

He took the five-person delegation from the Vanion Group to Harbour Town in Sea Pines first. The group will visit other locations on the island before leaving Thursday.
