As we previously reported, Wild Water & Wheels recently sold. The new developers are filing a rezoning request with the Town of Surfside Beach so the site can be repurposed to become a number of new homes. A commercial zoning request has been made for the land directly adjacent to Highway 17 Business.
A rezoning application was filed for Wild Water & Wheels by Marrob LLC of Myrtle Beach, Wild Water & Wheels Inc., and Surfside Beach Associates Inc. Surfside Beach Associates Inc is also of Myrtle Beach and listed at 676 PROVIDENCE DRIVE, MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina 29572
Former Horry County Council Chairman Mark Lazarus signed as an agent and owner of all three companies in the application.
The request calls for a list of “mixed use of multifamily and commercial” for future development in the area where the park formerly operated on Highway 17 Business. It would also allow the park to continue operations until construction plans are submitted. Sources, however, have informed MyrtleBeachSC News, should the plans be approved the park is unlikely to ever re-open.
The project would be broken into two districts located along the frontage road, with a 2.28-acre commercial district located along the frontage road and a 14.34-acre residential portion behind it. The residential portion would have four, four-story buildings along with space for parking and ponds.
Engineering and design are set for late winter and early spring 2023 with a period for permits set for spring and fall of 2023. Construction wouldn’t begin until winter 2023 with an estimated completion of summer.
