Typically, development is a force that either comes from without or comes from within, but rural West Ashley represents a combination of the two.

The thousands of raw, undeveloped acres are a prime opportunity for far sighted developers, timber harvesters and speculators alike.
This area is expanding quickly because of the growth from West Ashley on Hwy 17, and the large amount of raw land in Rural West Ashley that is available to builders.
