The above video provided by Surfside Beach resident Allison Hansen Byerly shows today’s demolition of the existing Surfside Beach pier. New pier construction will begin immediately.
The completion of the new concrete and steel pier will put Surfside Beach firmly ahead of the City of Myrtle Beach in destination tourism.
Consensus Construction is spearheading the building of the new pier.
Said John O’Brien, President Consensus Construction, “It’s an honor and a privilege to be working on such landmark project. I believe this project sets Surfside Beach apart. The town, the designers, and the contractor are working collectively for the common good of this project.“
Surfside Beach rentals already surpass the City of Myrtle Beach in rev par and occupancy.
With completion of the new pier, Surfside Beach will continue to surpass Myrtle Beach with the quality of families the two very different destinations attract.
