JANUARY 23, 2015 - LSTAR ANNOUNCES PLANS TO CREATE TWO NEW RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS WITHIN GRANDE DUNES IN MYRTLE BEACH, SC

January 23, 2015, Myrtle Beach, SC - LStar, the owner of Grande Dunes - Myrtle Beach's premier, luxury resort community - is excited to announce plans for the creation of its two newest neighborhoods. The 54 lot "Enclave" is located in the private, gated section of Grande Dunes' Golf Village community. Many of the lots will front directly on the exclusive Members Club 18-hole golf course; others will overlook a beautiful existing pond.

This new neighborhood is projected to break ground in early March and will offer prospective homeowners the opportunity to build their dream home on lots from 85' to 120' in width. LStar will work with a select group of builders to ensure the exceptional architectural integrity of the exclusive Members Club community is strictly protected. The Grande Dunes Properties staff will begin taking reservations for these lots shortly

"The creation of this new neighborhood is a very important milestone in our stewardship of this exceptional community. This is a very special plot of land with rare and precious natural elements surrounding it. The existing natural ponds must be protected and respected. The design of this neighborhood carefully balanced the desire to capture the beautiful golf course views with Grande Dunes' commitment to limiting the intrusion of homes on its golf experience. After many months of careful planning, we believe we have found the proper balance between growth and a respect for the rare environmental elements of this site," said Kyle Corkum, Managing Partner of LStar.

LStar also submitted plans this week for another new neighborhood in Grande Dunes located near the Claire Chapin Epps YMCA. This new neighborhood will include its own amenities and will connect to the new 21 mile Grande Dunes Trail network that will front on the Intracoastal Waterway. The first phase, consisting of 164 single-family homes, is expected to begin construction in mid 2015.

"The first long term plan LStar committed to after acquiring Grande Dunes was the creation of a 21 mile trail network that would link Grande Dunes to the East Coast Greenway. Perhaps the most exciting element of this new trail was our commitment to build more than 3 miles of it along the Intracoastal Waterway so everyone in Myrtle Beach could enjoy the exceptional experience of this beautiful amenity. A critical aspect of this planning required us to immediately begin working on the creation of a large neighborhood that would interact positively with the YMCA and would link its open space to the new trail network we will create. This new neighborhood is an important first step in what will ultimately be viewed as one of the most desirable housing locations in Myrtle Beach and we are very proud to be advancing this vision just 12 months after acquiring the community,"" said Kyle Corkum, Managing Partner at LStar.

The creation of these new neighborhoods follows on an unprecedented surge in home construction in Grande Dunes. Currently, there are 81 homes under construction (representing more than $40 million in construction) in the community. This represents the most new home building activity the community has ever experienced at one time.

MAY 27, 2014 - LSTAR MANAGEMENT UNVEILS CONCEPTUAL MASTER PLAN FOR GRANDE DUNES COMMUNITY

Proposed New Public Trail System Connecting Atlantic Ocean to Intracoastal Waterway, Marina Village and Beautification of Highway 17 Bypass Highlight Concepts for Community

May 27, 2014, Myrtle Beach, SC - Representatives from LStar met with Myrtle Beach officials today, in a joint meeting of the City Council and Planning Commission, to discuss the results of a comprehensive six month planning process that explored preliminary design and development objectives for Grande Dunes. After purchasing the 2,200 acre property in December, representatives from LStar expressed a commitment to undertake a thoughtful planning process that would include a close collaboration with City officials, prior to exploring any prospective commercial or residential development within the community. Today's meeting signaled the beginning of that collaboration. LStar expressed an earnest commitment to work closely with City, County and State representatives to help shape a visionary future for this outstanding oceanfront property.

LStar's initial concepts include a 21 mile network of trails and parks that would connect Grande Dunes to the extensive East Coast Greenway trail system. This proposed pedestrian and bicycle park system would provide a contiguous network of trails that connect all of the undeveloped land within Grande Dunes to the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.

Grande Dunes possesses many miles of undeveloped frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway, and this area was singled out as a crucial component of LStar's long range plans. The firm outlined a plan to preserve this water frontage as open space to create a 3.2 mile linear public park. The community also owns undeveloped land fronting on numerous natural ponds as well as one of the last undeveloped sites on the Atlantic Ocean. Grande Dunes' contiguous landholdings make it possible to link these extraordinary natural amenities to each other as well as other key activity areas. Focal points along the trail network would include the existing marina, the YMCA and dog park, new parks, as well as many miles of waterfront trails that would be open to the public.

LStar also expressed a desire to work closely with City, County and State officials to investigate an extensive beautification project along the 3 miles of frontage that Grande Dunes' possesses on Highway 17 and the 17 bypass. A key component of the visual enhancement program is the creation of pedestrian crossing points along these two major traffic ways. LStar is committed to working collaboratively with local officials to explore different methods of creating safe pedestrian crossing points so the new trail network can safely link all of the landholdings.

"As stewards of this extraordinary property, we feel a keen sense of responsibility to ensure that our plans for the future of Grande Dunes will enhance and improve the lives of our residents, neighbors and the entire Myrtle Beach community." said Kyle Corkum, Managing Partner of LStar. "We are committed to emphasizing planning goals that will inspire exceptional commercial and residential development alongside a network of beautiful open space parks that welcome visitors to our exceptional community. We intend to promote a healthy lifestyle in which Grande Dunes residents and visitors from Myrtle Beach can live, work and play in beautiful waterfront environments."

LStar's conceptual plans included artists' rendering of a vision for Grande Dunes Marina Village. The firm presented a grand vision for the existing marina and jetty situated along the Intracoastal Waterway. Preliminary ideas for the Marina Village, which could be accessed by car, or through the proposed trail network, could include a waterfront park which could act as a venue for public events and performances. The Marina Village concept envisions the creation of waterfront restaurants, hotels, extensive retail development as well as residential neighborhoods with trails linking all the elements to the park system.

"Based on the conceptual design, the Marina Village will serve as the community's epicenter and would be an ideal meeting spot for families and friends wishing to explore the area," said Corkum. "From the Marina Village, visitors could use the 21 mile trail system to explore waterfront parks, restaurants, entertainment venues, retail shops, hotels, medical offices, senior housing, residential neighborhoods and restaurants."
