The Town of Hilton Head Island today announced the acquisition of a 1.5 acre tract of property in the Shelter Cove Marina area for $875,000.

The property at 18 Harbourside Lane was once the site of the former Kingfisher Restaurant. As part of the acquisition, the Town will remove the existing buildings on the property.

"The Town is continuing to build its bank of properties and use them for the greater good of the community," said Deputy Town Manager Josh Gruber.

"The acquisition of property in the Shelter Cove Marina area opens up opportunities to enhance open space, pathway connectivity, parking and public access to the waterfront. It also allows for additional uses consistent with the Town's Comprehensive Plan," Gruber said.

Proceeds from real estate transfer fees were used to buy the property. Last month, the Town purchased two tracts of property totaling 4.58 acres along William Hilton Parkway (U.S. 278) in the Stoney area. With today's acquisitions, the Town's inventory of land includes 149 parcels totaling 1,299.21 acres, with a total expenditure of $177.91 million.
