Business Climate

It is hard to tell what is more impressive about Hardeeville, the business climate or the quality of life. When you look at our Regional Map (PDF), you can see why all business roads lead to Hardeeville.

Many municipalities have to fight their county or neighbors on business projects. Hardeeville is not in that situation. Hardeeville and Jasper County have governments and populations that are pro-business and have worked together to embrace the growth that is coming and make sure it happens the right way. Jasper County and its municipalities do not allow developer "venue shopping" which assures that only quality developments will survive.

As a result, Hardeeville has been able to make sure that a balanced economy is the foundation upon which the future will be built. With 60,000 residential units approved for development, a minimum of 5 million square feet of commercial space in the works, and over 8,000 acres of prime industrial land in the beginning stages of development, prosperity is in the forecast for generations to come.

Then there is our quality of life. With Hilton Head Island, Palmetto Bluff and Savannah nearby, the region has family activities, nightlife and lifestyle amenities that run the spectrum. For housing, we have everything from apartments to affordable homes to workforce developments all the way up to some of the nicest resorts in the country.

"A lot of areas might have pieces of the puzzle but Hardeeville has it all. We have the property, the utilities, the major roads, the rail, the ports and the residential and commercial growth. Not to mention we're right next door to some of the finest resorts in the world. You can see why any business would want to be in Hardeeville."
