NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) -

Monday, the North Myrtle Beach City Council and RealtyLink, LLC held a groundbreaking ceremony for Coastal North Town Center in North Myrtle Beach.

"North Myrtle Beach has been an area that's been a little bit under served with a lot of the national retailers," said RealtyLink partner Phil Wilson.

The Town Center, located on the site of the former Robber's Roost Golf Course, will offer 348,000 square feet of commercial space and will open for business in late 2014.

"It's an aggressive schedule, but it looks like we're well underway," Wilson said.

During the groundbreaking event, Phil, identified the big box stores that have committed to Coastal North Town Center. They include Publix, TJ Maxx, Ulta Beauty, Hobby Lobby, Dick's Sporting Goods, Ross Dress for Less, Rack Room Shoes, PetSmart, and Versona Accessories.

"It's the first time we have had the bigger stores here in our area, and we love our small businesses, but it's nice to have the mix," North Myrtle Beach Mayor Marilyn Hatley.

La Quinta Inn hotel manager Mike Mishra said he looks forward to the new shopping center.

His hotel is right across the street from the construction.

"We are very excited. We were very excited about the new sports arena opening up in North Myrtle Beach, and we are very excited about this shopping center because this is in front of us, it's right on the corner," Mishra said.

RealtyLink will identify out parcel tenants at a later date. The out parcel tenants will be a mix of restaurants and smaller retail stores.

Financing for the project is provided by NBSC. The general contractor for the project is Vannoy Construction.
