Second Active Adult Community Planned for Hilton Head, South Carolina

Orlando, FL (May 25, 2017) – Minto Communities and Margaritaville Holdings today announced that Hilton Head, South Carolina will be the second location for their new LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE active adult residential communities.  The new 55-and-better community, built on the “no worries” tropical vibe of Margaritaville, will sit on 2,739 acres and include a 72-acre site for a 290,000-square foot Margaritaville-inspired festive retail center. 
"From our College ambassadors to those ready to move to Latitude Margaritaville right away, the extraordinary level of enthusiasm and interest generated from the announcement of our first development on Daytona Beach with Minto has been exciting and gratifying,” said John Cohlan, chief executive officer of Margaritaville. “We look forward to creating another port of paradise for those looking to live a life of fun and relaxation on the shores of South Carolina.”

Featuring world-class amenities and design, LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Hilton Head will boast a resort-style pool, fitness center, social hall, game and hobby rooms, arts and learning programs, indoor and outdoor dining with signature food and beverage concepts and tennis and pickleball courts. A destination retail center, developed in partnership with Sutton Holdings, will consist of a Margaritaville signature- concept restaurant, specialty stores, grocery store and entertainment venues.

“The Hilton Head area has long been an established coastal destination for those seeking fun, sun, golf and water,” notes Minto Senior Vice President William Bullock. “Through our partnership with Margaritaville, we are redefining active adult living, focusing on the creation of iconic locations to live inspired- by the food, fun and music of the Margaritaville lifestyle. LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Hilton Head will be influenced by the spectacular South Carolina setting and charming classic coastal architecture.”   

LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE Hilton Head is located on Highway 278, two-and-a-half miles east of I-95 in the city of Hardeeville, South Carolina – the scenic gateway to world-famous Hilton Head Island and within nearby proximity to the historic cities of Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC.  Current plans call for 3,000+ homes with a wide range of home designs and floor plans starting in the low $200’s.  Development will begin immediately with a sales center opening targeted for early 2018. 

In February 2017, Minto and Margaritaville Holdings announced their partnership, combining Minto’s years of experience in building award-winning communities and homes with Margaritaville’s unique and proven ability to deliver fun and escapism, to present LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE in some of the nation’s most popular destinations.  The groundbreaking ceremony took place in March 2017 for the first LATITUDE MARGARITAVILLE community in Daytona Beach, Florida. That sales center opens later this fall and model homes are scheduled to open in early 2018.
