Construction has begun on McLean’s new commercial marina on South New Hope Road at the bridge to South Carolina.

McLean and Morningstar Marinas are developing the facility, which will have 300 dry slips, 32 wet slips, a ship’s store, waterfront event lawn and more. The marina is expected to open in 2021.

Morningstar Marinas will handle day-to-day operations. The 35-year-old company offers exceptional facilities and first-class customer service at several locations along the East Coast, including St. Simons Island, GA., and Jacksonville, Fla.

“This marina will combine state of the art technology and a design tailored to the character of McLean,” said community developer Steven Hinshaw.

With five miles of Lake Wylie shoreline and easy access to Charlotte and points north and south, McLean is a natural site for a marina. Adjacent to the marina are three commercial parcels, including space for a future waterfront restaurant.
