Two Of My Favorite Things Are Coming To North Augusta Soon
Last week, Palmetto Peach Development announced their plans for a new mixed-use project that will be developed at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Center Street. The new development is being called Beacon Bluff. And I’m excited, because this means two of my favorite things are coming even closer to home for me in North Augusta.
Beacon Bluff Development
This project will renovate the old skating rink, and add two new building. As part of this, there will be new apartments, restaurants, and other retailers.
The renovation of the skating rink has been ongoing for about a year now, and they plan to have it completed by spring 2024. This part of the project is called “The Rink.” There will be 3 businesses on the first floor, and four 2-bedroom apartments on the second floor.
The Rink already has two tenants locked in. And I was so excited to see that now I won’t have to go quite as far for two of my favorite things.
As someone who’s big into fitness and who runs quite a bit, I was so glad to see Fleet Feet bringing a location to North Augusta. This will be their second location (the other is on Furys Ferry in Augusta). Fleet Feet is locally owned by Michael McCauley and North Augusta City Councilwoman Jenafer McCauley.
With so many runs going on in North Augusta, this just feels like a no brainer! I know that Fleet Feet has been doing runs in North Augusta for a while. I’m glad to see them opening the new spot nearby.
And after the run… there will be a new spot to eat, with one of my favorite comfort foods…
Melty is a specialty grilled cheese eatery. I’d never heard of this franchise, but I’m intrigued. I just looked at their website and it says: “I’m only here for the cheese!” And I just have to say… SAME!
Also, looking at the website, their only locations previously are in Utah. But I am excited to have them come to this area, because who doesn’t love a great grilled cheese? And these are just your everyday grilled cheese sandwiches. They’ve got a four cheese classic, a melty burger, a BBQ brisket melt, and more. YUM!
As someone who lives in North Augusta, I am looking forward to this new space that’s bringing new businesses and more options for those of us on this side of the river. And I can’t wait to see what else Beacon Bluff will bring in!
