About Daniel Island

Welcome to Daniel Island

It has taken a quarter of a century, but the previously unoccupied expanse of Daniel Island has transformed into a crown jewel of Lowcountry real estate. Originally inhabited by the native Etiwan indians it was granted to former South Carolina Governor Robert Daniel. In 1947 it was purchased by the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation and used for farming, cattle ranching, hunting, and fishing. The area was difficult to access until the opening of the Mark Clark Expressway (Interstate 526) in 1992. At this point the location became of great interest for development, and the Guggenheim Foundation sold the island to the newly formed Daniel Island Company. The first house was built and sold in 1997, and from that point the multi-phase master plan began development of what is today one of Charleston’s premier island towns that has stayed true to its goal of creating a diverse, open community whose social and recreational engagements converge in a bustling city center along with over 50 parks and over 25 miles of walking trails. Nearly three decades later, the promise of Daniel Island’s sustainable development plan has finally come to fruition with the last lots to be sold in early 2023.
