Representation of prominent developer in creation and acquisition of 99-year ground lease for 38 acres in Charleston, South Carolina, to develop a $250 million mixed-use project, including a Hilton hotel, a 450-slip marina, a retail center, vacation resort condominiums, and cottages. At inception, the ground lease was not financeable.
