Daniel Island Charleston's Island Town

Daniel Island, South Carolina is an award-winning Master Planned Community built on nearly 4,000 Acres located in the City of Charleston, South Carolina. the island remained undeveloped until the early 1990s when the newly constructed I-526 expressway was completed. At that time, the Guggenheim Foundation sponsored the development of a master plan that would guide the island’s development as a natural extension of this affluent suburb of Charleston. Development of the first residential properties began in 1996, and in 1997 the island was purchased by the Daniel Island Company, a developer of master-planned communities. Hundreds of acres of parks have since been created.


Daniel Island has hundreds of acres of land that are home to beautiful parks, and passive greenspaces.
