Okatie Village

Project Details


Delhaize America


Bluffton, NC


140,000 square feet

Located on a site with excellent visibility along the main thoroughfare to Hilton Head Island, the design for Okatie Village captures the spirit and essence of the historic Low Country. Fashioned after a downtown environment, the retail development incorporates an internal “Main Street” designed with regional materials and styles to create visual interest and suggest architecture that developed over time.

The development is organized around a central traffic circle that adjoins to one end of a pedestrian plaza. The plaza features extensive landscaping, filled with plants that thrive in the region’s climate, and a clock tower visible from the main road. A Food Lion prototype store anchors one of the primary retail buildings while other buildings include a mix of retail, restaurant and office space.
