Del Webb Expands into Myrtle Beach with 55-Plus Community at Grande Dunes
MYRTLE BEACH, SC Del Webb continues its expansion in the southeastern coastal markets with its first Del Webb community in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Del Webb's newest community will be located in Grande Dunes, one of the area's most luxurious master-planned developments. Del Webb will be building 524 single-family homes, with the first phase of the neighborhood expected to open in February 2018.
"Myrtle Beach is a true destination location for many baby boomers looking to retire in an area with a low cost of living and endless activities. We are excited for Del Webb to be part of the Grande Dunes master-planned community and all it has to offer," said Charlie Tipton, Coastal Carolinas Division President for PulteGroup, which builds under the Pulte Homes, Centex, John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, and Del Webb brands.
Tipton added that Myrtle Beach is among the fastest-growing areas in the country, and is forecasted to experience strong population growth over the next four years. "We believe that there are many boomers who have long vacationed here with their families and are attracted to the extensive recreation, entertainment options, and youthfulness of the town. We expect many of those longtime vacationers to buy their retirement or pre-retirement home at Del Webb at Grande Dunes."
