In February 2019, The Cliffs was acquired by South Street Partners, one of the largest developers and operators of luxury residential private club communities in the U.S. and master developer of Kiawah Island. In addition to experiencing significant sales growth, South Street made a series of club investments over the past year including breaking ground on The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards Lakehouse, releasing 26 premium lakefront homesites at The Landing at The Cliffs at Keowee Springs, and announcing plans for the Keowee Springs clubhouse as well as extensive new club amenities at The Landing.
In October, The Cliffs announced the launch of a new internal homebuilding program, Cliffs Builders, which broke ground on its first home within The Meadows neighborhood at The Cliffs at Walnut Cove. The homebuilding program is modeled after a successful program implemented by South Street at Kiawah Island and is expected to release new homesites later this year. Potential buyers can choose from a range of options, from turn-key cottages clustered around amenities to higher-end spec homes with a variety of options including unique floorplans and interior packages.
