New North Myrtle Beach mall will have ‘modern Palm Beach style’, developer says

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) — What started as a wooded area is now a construction site that will eventually become the new Lake View Commons Mall.

Developer and owner of King One properties, Michael King, said the first phase will include 900 Prime Steakhouse, a fine dining restaurant created by the owners of Sea Blue.

Among other things, the center will also include shops and offices.

King said he wanted to meet the needs of all of the communities that make up North Myrtle Beach.

Through his experience and visiting many different areas, he wanted to bring something new and unique here.

“One thing I’ve tried to do in everything I do is think outside the box, bring something beautiful to our area that’s very popular in other areas,” King said.

King said he noticed residents wanted something done at the corner of US 17 and Ninth Avenue for a while.

Having lived in North Myrtle Beach since he was 11, he said he knows the area like the back of his hand and couldn’t think of a better place to invest.

“Everyone, the City of North Myrtle Beach is very excited about this, the residents are very excited about this,” King said. “For us, this three plus acres and really bringing something to North Myrtle Beach that everyone is excited for really excites me as a developer.”

The first phase is expected to open in the spring of 2023.
