More than just Charleston's first Bass Pro Shop is moving into development along I-26 in North Charleston

Posted: Updated:

More than just Charleston's first Bass Pro Shop is moving into development along I-26 in North Charleston.

If you've noticed quite a bit of construction activity in the woods along I-26 near highway 78, you're not alone. The 1800 acre Ingleside Plantation is in the process of being developed.

One of the first signs of development was Ingleside Plantation Apartments. Nicole Coffey is the site manager at Ingleside Apartments. "For awhile, Ingleside was the only property on this road, and we've been here since 2008."

Fritz Weber is Vice President of development for Weber USA, the company that owns the property. "We're looking to have a large retail and commercial component… with some big box stores, like a Bass Pro Shop."

Bass Pro Shop's announced their new store last year. It will be built just off the interstate about half-way between highway 78 and Ashley Phosphate road. Another interstate exit was planned for that site, so the Bass Pro Shop will be built at that location.


Several industrial businesses are already open at the back side of Ingleside, along Palmetto commerce Parkway, which have already had an economic impact. Weber says, two of the companies already in place, "have probably created several hundred jobs."

Jobs and business from other nearby businesses is part of what the development plans to bring and attract.

Nicole says that's already happening. "We're seeing a lot of Boeing. And hopefully, that will, you know, drive some more business in this area too."

Marie Thomas now lives at the Ingleside Plantation Apartments. "I just moved out here in about November of last year." Marie works at Boeing. She is looking forward to all the new stores and activity in the area. "It's gonna be nice, just to have maybe a few things closer, maybe a new grocery store or stores to shop."

You can see work underway now, along the interstate, and especially along Palmetto Commerce Parkway, as infrastructure, including $36 million worth of county roads, are being built.

Weber says, "it's taken about 15 years for it to become an overnight success. It's a long-term project. We're talking about a 25 year build out."

While there is not a set date for the opening of the Bass Pro Shop, Weber says they are hoping to see it open as soon as September of 2015.
