New housing development headed to Berkeley County off SC 41
Site work is set to begin after the Fourth of July weekend on a new housing development slated for a piece of the city of Charleston in Berkeley County.
Gulf Stream Development of Charleston will begin moving earth and preparing to install underground utilities and roads for a 68-acre site called Wando Village on S.C. Highway 41 at Tuxbury Farm Road.
A division of Pulte Home Co. of North Charleston is developing the site just across the Wando River from Mount Pleasant.
The number of homes slated for the development was not immediately available, but at one point in 2014 about 420 units were planned for the site.
The property sits in the city of Charleston and is owned by an affiliate of The Beach Co., according to Berkeley County land records. The developer bought the property in 2007 for $14.9 million.
