The Municipal Center Project

The Town’s vision for the new Municipal Center and site is to create a “Gateway” to the Town of Kiawah Island.  The facility will feature a high quality entrance commensurate with The Sanctuary Hotel, River Course Clubhouse and Cassique Clubhouse. The facility will house the Town’s current departments and allow for growth, expecting to provide space to accommodate up to 30 employees based on a ten year look ahead. It will include Council Chambers, Municipal Court, Visitors Bureau space, generous public meeting space and customer service areas for the public.  Preliminary estimates indicate a building size of about 18,000 sq. ft.

 

The total Municipal Center project, inclusive of architectural design, construction, site development, and landscaping, is projected to cost approximately $9 million.  The Town ended up contributing $1.5 million from the sale of the former municipal center, $4,675 million from cash reserves and financing the $3 million balance over 25-30 years.
