New strip shopping center planned at mall in Myrtle Beach

Coastal Grand mall in Myrtle Beach is growing.

A new 9,610-square-foot strip center with a restaurant that has an outside patio and two other tenants is in the works to be built behind Red Robin where Oak Forest Lane intersects with Coastal Grand Circle, according to plans submitted to the city of Myrtle Beach for approval.

The developer, Burroughs & Chapin Co. Inc., declined to comment on the project including when it would open and the names of the restaurant and other tenants, with spokeswoman Lei Gainer saying the company doesn’t comment on “pending contractual matters.” Mall officials referred questions to B&C.

On Thursday, the city’s Community Appearance Board signed off on two parts of the project, the building’s aesthetics and the placement of the building, but the board wanted B&C to tweak the landscaping plan and return before final approval is given.

The CAB must sign off on the project before it can move forward.

Coastal Grand has more than 100 stores and restaurants, including Bed Bath and Beyond, Belk, Old Navy and J.C. Penney.
