Point Hope: Charleston's Last Frontier

The Future of Living in the Lowcountry

As Charleston’s last true frontier for large-scale development, Point Hope is bridging the city’s historic charm with a sustainable, conservation-minded future.

This 9,000-acre master planned community is a rare opportunity to thoughtfully integrate residential and commercial growth while prioritizing environmental preservation in the Charleston MSA. Over half the total acreage will remain permanently protected wetlands, buffers and natural areas. 

Even within the developed residential sections (9,000 homes and over 2,000 apartments at full buildout) extensive parks, trails and open spaces will create a haven for nature. Point Hope boasts Charleston’s largest private conservation easement – a 650-acre professionally managed nature sanctuary. 

Just a short drive to Daniel Island, Mt. Pleasant, and historic Downtown Charleston, Point Hope aims to become a new commerce and residential hub. Residents will have easy access to everything that makes Charleston desirable including beaches, F&B, hospitals, and recreational opportunities.

A New Urban Vision

That being said, development is here, and is creating considerable buzz along the way. The beginning of the commercial phases are underway, with Point Hope Commons and The Hub leading the way from an F&B and service retail standpoint.

Point Hope presents a unique opportunity to dramatically alter the commercial landscape of the heavily-travelled Clements Ferry Road. Rather than a small assortment of random sites, the vision offers an urban commercial corridor unlike any other in the region. The area is slated to become a regional destination providing a full mix of uses including retail, office, multifamily, healthcare, senior living, and professional services.
