February 2019 News: Homes Under Construction + Waterfront Lots Sold

After years of anticipation, we are breaking ground on our first homes!

Saussy Burbank’s construction team went to work, bringing together these clean structures into the air in early February, hoisting up homes that will one day host the love and life of our sea islands community.

So far, Kiawah River has completed many of the horizontal projects, including the construction of roads and safe relocation of ancient live oak trees throughout the property to preserve and sustain the sacred nature of our land. With this progress, we look forward to seeing new homes throughout Kiawah River!


We are pleased to announce that nine out of 10 of the waterfront homesite lots have officially sold! The team is full of excitement to bring these homes to fruition, and we look forward to welcoming future homeowners for celebration gatherings at the Farmhouse as we introduce the families who will be creating community in our new homes.

Kiawah River will offer 1,000 homes and homesites dispersed among distinct villages with waterfront and wildlife views guided by the vision of our Builders Guild and Design Guild, who have put thought and intention into every detail. The community will feature a diverse array of home offerings from multifamily and cottages to semi-custom and waterfront custom homes among 2,000 acres along 20 miles of waterfront.

Our active outdoor and culturally-enriching lifestyle is starkly different from the homes of golf-centric resort communities with gated access and club membership dues. Kiawah River offers a rare opportunity to live amongst nature and to experience sea islands’ culture of outdoor pursuits unlike any other community in the Charleston area with first-class amenities coupled with natural wonders and authentic experiences.
