The Kalikow Group Breaks Ground on Johns Island

EYC Companies, a 25-year veteran of real estate development and management based in the Carolinas, and development partner The Kalikow Group, a fourth-generation, New York-based company, has begun site work on The Exchange at Maybank. The Class A mixed-use commercial center will be located at the heart of a rapidly-emerging commercial corridor on Johns Island in the City of Charleston, South Carolina and will enjoy dual access from both Maybank Highway and Cane Slash Road.

Just eight miles from downtown Charleston, The Exchange will have direct frontage on Maybank which generates 14,000 vehicles per day. It is a master-planned development with three phases: (1) 56,000 +/- SF of Medical Office space available in 5 buildings, anchored by a 24,000 SF, two-story flagship building; (2) 50,000 +/- SF of Flex / Office space in four buildings and (3) an additional 12,000 +/- SF of Flex / Office space in two buildings. Vertical construction will begin in mid-2021 on both the first and second phases. Suite sizes will start at +/- 1,500 SF.

“The Johns Island population has doubled in the past decade and it’s becoming crucial for residents to have closer access to basic services,” said Ellis Coleman, principal of EYC Companies. “They shouldn’t have to leave the island to get medical care. And more available flex space means service providers won’t have to constantly commute back and forth across the bridges.”
