Once a private hunting retreat for the Guggenheim family, Daniel Island is a bustling master-planned community situated on 4,000 acres, just outside of Charleston, SC. Nestled by the Cooper and Wando Rivers, you will find residential neighborhoods, parks, trails, recreational amenities and a wonderful downtown comprised of shops, restaurants, schools, churches and offices.
The island that was used primarily for farming and cattle ranching, remained undeveloped until the early 1990's. With the guidance of the Guggenheim Foundation, a master plan was developed that would help guide the island's unfolding of residential life as we presently know it today. In 1997, the island was purchased by the Daniel Island Company, a developer of master-planned communities.
Two professional sports/entertainment facilities – the Family Circle Tennis Center and Blackbaud Stadium – are located on the island, along with a private country club, the Daniel Island Club. Each year, top tennis players will meet in Daniel Island to play in the Family Circle Cup and top names in the entertainment industry will be found performing at Blackbaud Stadium.
The community and its developers have been nationally recognized for responsible planning and "smart growth" practices with numerous awards and accolades. It was a 2007 recipient of an "Award for Excellence" from the Urban Land Institute.
