Withers Swash District Plan

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina


  • Title: Withers Swash District Plan
  • Address: Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  • Phase: complete


The intent for the Withers Swash District Plan is to repurpose an environmentally stressed region of the City of Myrtle Beach into a highly sustainable, ecologically rich park environment; and recognize and preserve the historical significance and heritage of the region.  The resulting green space should integrate a sustainable approach to storm water management, create qualitative green space for the surrounding residents and provide a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization and interconnectivity for the district.


Implementing an integrated approach, the planning process included a comprehensive strategy creating opportunities to address transportation, land use, community connectivity, preservation of cultural heritage, economic catalysts and development density.
