132-Unit Student Multifamily Housing Development on Druid Park Ave given preliminary approval. Myrtle Beach Developer College Acres has proposed to build a four-story #apartment development aimed at Paine & AU students. David Despain, the developer, has developed a number of similar properties, and was also involved in working with Coastal Carolina University for the development of the HTC Center in Conway, SC.
It is great to see developers take notice of what’s happening in Augusta. This looks like a great project and should have a big positive impact in that neighborhood!
