Chamber Breaks Ground on Addition
June 11, 2012 - Southport, NC - The
Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce broke
ground on a 1,700 square foot addition to its existing
building. Carolina Coastal Designs designed the addition
which will include a conference room, galley kitchen and
storage room. McCullough Construction and Carolina
Creations were awarded the bid to construct the facility
which will be completed by early fall.
Funding for the addition came from revenues received
from the sale of the previous Chamber building to North
Carolina Department of Transportation, a donation by Dr.
Brad Hilaman and fundraisers.
The NC DOT purchased the previous Chamber building as
part of the R-3324 highway project to connect Highway
133 to Highway 87. That road project is slated to begin
construction in February of 2013.
