The 77,000 square foot complex will be a state-of-the-art, three-story Class A office and premier shopping center, located on Olde Regent Way, adjacent to Waterford Commercial Village and Harris Teeter. SAMM developers Steve Anderson and Parker Anderson aim to make it a high-end mixed-use commercial development, featuring upper-level offices and lower-level boutiques and fine dining.

Modern design by Mark Loudermilk of Mark Loudermilk Architecture will consist of two separate three-story buildings, which will be connected by an outdoor plaza.

“As we approached the design of this project, we intentionally created an exterior ‘hall’, rather a plaza, which connects pedestrians to the hallways of each building,” Loudermilk said in a press release, adding that the green space will allow to sit outside. for gastronomic tenants.

SAMM Properties is behind several high-end office developments, totaling over half a million square feet. The company’s work can also be seen at Howe Creek Landing, in the six office buildings of the Mayfaire offices in downtown Mayfaire and the offices in Airlie.

Tenants interested in securing a place in Waterford will have the option of owning the space, the developers noted. When it built the 80,000-square-foot, three-story Bradley Creek station in late 2020, the company said the spaces were partially sold out in the first quarter of 2021.

SAMM Properties is strategizing for its development plans based on the market and noted that it is eyeing Brunswick County. The fastest growing in North Carolina between 2009 and 2019, the 2020 census report shows that its population has nearly doubled in 20 years, from 73,000 to 136,000 in 2020.

“We have paid attention to this region of Brunswick, and every indicator tells us that this market is ready for our product,” SAMM Properties’ Steve Anderson said in the release.

“We are delighted that an established and very successful developer such as SAMM Properties has chosen Leland for the location of this major office and the development of some retail businesses,” said Leland Director of Economic and Community Development Gary Vidmar, in the press release. “We can imagine office users offering services and professional employment opportunities that currently do not exist in the city, as well as a distinctive group of retail businesses selected locally to include fine dining that will be welcomed. by our community. “
