Downtown Master Plan
With the adoption of the Downtown Master Plan, Phase 1 Implementation has begun. Thank you for your interest in Downtown and we ask for your continued engagement and support.

Arts & Innovation District
Local architects and planners with LS3P have taken the Downtown Master Plan to the next level with an Advanced Plan view of the core downtown district, i.e. the new Arts & Innovation District. This district encompasses Opportunity Zones and the Downtown Historic District. There are several projects already completed, underway and in active planning stages within the Arts and Innovation District. The link below will take you to the most recent presentation to City Council.
Broadway Theater and More
Next steps for this amazing project are underway. This includes the BID opening for careful removal of non-contributing façade improvements made to the buildings over the years. Once complete, an assessment of the façade and necessary repairs will be completed, then final submittal of Historic applications. All qualified expenses of the project thereafter will be eligible for state and federal tax credits. The project also anticipates receiving SC Abandoned Building tax credits.
One Grand Strand (OGS) Downtown Development Framework
One Grand Strand has convened business, civic, and institutional leaders to:
- Support the development of a broader vision for Myrtle Beach’s Opportunity Zone that builds upon and weaves together the planning efforts the City of Myrtle Beach has spearheaded.
- Demonstrate the value and further the establishment of a “networked governance” model for Downtown Myrtle Beach that incorporates nationwide best practices and builds capacity in support of implementation.
