Plans are beginning to take shape as the 40-year-old Pineland Station gets its make-over. Conceptual renderings of the new Sea Turtle Marketplace include seven new buildings, ample parking and redesigned access points.
The existing Steinmart and Starbucks buildings will remain while the other structures are demolished. Once completed, Sea Turtle Marketplace will be home to a new anchor retailer, two smaller junior anchor retailers, a smaller box store, about 23 boutique shops and a gas station.
Some of the previous tenants found nearby spots in sleek shopping centers and north-end spots. For example The French Bakery has moved to the new Shelter Cove Towne Centre. Marek Belka, owner of the French Bakery, said the new space has outdoor seating and more interior space allowing more than twice the number of customers to enjoy their menu.
Relish Café, known for its traditional Southern fare, has taken up residence in Park Plaza. Tradewinds Ladies Apparel has relocated to Port Royal Plaza. And AT&T relocated to Shelter Cove Town Centre.
We are excited for the opening of the new and improved Pineland Station, now known as Sea Turtle Market Place. We’ll keep you updated as we get details.
