CCU trustees approve purchase, leases of real estate
At its recent quarterly meeting, Coastal Carolina University’s Board of Trustees approved the purchase of 1.6 acres on S.C. 544 near the campus. The acquisition of the property, located between the main campus and the University Place (UP) student housing complex, will help fulfill CCU’s Comprehensive Master Plan, which calls for steps to be taken to connect the two areas in order to improve access to the main campus for the approximately 2,000 students housed in UP. Purchase of the property enhances the goal of establishing a pedestrian and bicycle path connecting the main campus and UP, as well as access to a parking lot scheduled to be constructed on S.C. 544 on a contiguous parcel CCU has acquired. The University will purchase the 1.6-acre property at its appraised value of $190,000.
