Myrtle Beach, S.C. — Landscape architectural firm Lifescapes International has been selected to design the landscape for the redevelopment of two entertainment centers in Myrtle Beach — Barefoot Landing and Broadway at the Beach. Burroughs & Chapin is leading the multi-year redevelopment of the two destinations.
At Barefoot Landing, the redevelopment will include 45,000 square feet of new retail space, a new restaurant district known as Dockside Village, the addition of an amphitheater and a new boardwalk on the south end of the property. Lifescapes will design the landscape for the entire redevelopment, and plans to incorporate a water entertainment feature and show, as well as increase patio space along the waterfront. The firm will use blue stone and brick pavers throughout the center to mimic the look of Charleston. In addition, Lifescapes will add a programmable lawn that will host activities including concerts and an ice skating rink during the holiday season.
At Broadway at the Beach, Lifescapes will design the landscape for the entire redevelopment, including The Avenue, the property’s entertainment and nightlife section. The Avenue recently underwent a renovation that included façade upgrades, relocation of Hard Rock Café, opening of Dave & Buster’s and a new architectural style built around the concept of a repurposed warehouse district. For the redevelopment, Lifescapes plans to incorporate recycled brick from New Orleans to give the property a nostalgic feel, as well as update the water entertainment feature to allow for varied performances. A construction timeline for the development was not disclosed.
