Cainhoy’s Point Hope continues to prosper as new businesses grow

Clements Ferry is growing and nowhere is that more evident than in the Point Hope area. 
Point Hope is the first phase of the 9,000-acre Cainhoy Master Planned Development. The Point Hope project encompasses 2,200 acres south of Clements Ferry Road. 
The flourishing region will be getting a variety of new retail and service businesses. Fritz Meyer of Meyer Kapp & Associates LLC said Clements Ferry is the largest undeveloped parcel left in the city of Charleston.  
“A lot of the building blocks are already there to make the area successful; it is primed for development,” Meyer said. “The infrastructure is already being put in place, both in terms of the public infrastructure funds and the infrastructure that’s being put in by the master developer.”
For those with a sweet tooth, the area will have some tasty treats. Point Hope will be running on Dunkin’ by 2024. The popular donut shop recently signed a lease at the Gates at Point Hope Development, a 38,000-square-foot commercial project. Located within the Point Hope master planned community, this Dunkin’ Donuts location will also include a drive-thru.
Another sweet treat favorite, Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Shop, signed a lease for 3,000 square feet in the same development. This will be the business’ seventh Lowcountry location.
Even with all the availability of sugary snacks, residents will be able to keep their teeth healthy when Coastal Kids Dental & Braces and Coastal Family Orthodontics opens its 10th office. Dr. Isabel Driggers said the location is the perfect place to expand their business.
“We have two teenage sons that go to Philip Simmons High School, so we have seen firsthand how the area is growing so quickly,” Driggers said. “It’s hard to believe that there is an elementary, middle and high school all together. That’s a lot of kids and teens that need dental care and braces. It will be great for the families that live in that area to be able to stay close by and not have to get on (Interstate) 526.” 
Driggers said there have been a few building challenges along the way, but things are getting near completion. “We have had supply constraints that have pushed back our open date, but we will be open in the spring.”
Krista Mingo of Coach’s Canteen will be expanding to include beer and wine along with a new outdoor patio. Once completed the space will have outdoor dining, music, cornhole and much more.
In the future, the commercial space will be filled with restaurants, wellness services, offices and a diverse collection of retail. Several new commercial properties are already in the  construction phase including a wine bar/bottle shop and a restaurant.
“When it’s all said and done it’s going to be a wonderful master development,” Meyers said. “These developments will truly be the best in class because of their location and the quality of the master plan guided by DI Development and the vision of the Guggenheim family, the
original owner of the property. DI Development has been very thoughtful about the way they look. That will set the standard.”
