Myrtle Beach's Downtown Redevelopment Corp. will request a specific proposal from LS3P, which in 1994 completed a downtown-revitalization plan for Myrtle Beach. No other firms are being considered. The DRC picked LS3P and its partner, Economic Research Associates, because that team also is planning the redevelopment of the former Myrtle Square Mall site a few miles down the road.

Perhaps they'll go another route than trying to get rid of the Pavilion. I doubt it, but maybe. And the former Myrtle Square Mall needs it too, who knows what will happen.

Since this developer seems to have *infinitely* more credibility, I'd say Pavilion MAY be seeing its demise next year...details should come pretty quicly now... :(

Everyone knows the public wants record-breaking shopping centers.

Well, the article says that B&C has not publicly agreed to move the amusement park, although I am not naive enough to believe it won't happen. I still hold out a glimmer of hope that it will be preserved.
According to the article, it does appear now that they are also concentrating on the blighted blocks south of the Pavilion, which in my opinion is the real eyesores in downtown Myrtle Beach.
If they could buy out all those seedy motels and create their fancy smancy year-round mall there, and leave the amusement park alone, I will be satisfied.....

Let's hope for the best. I haven't been down there in a long time but I am sure the area won't suffer to dismantle those seedy motels. There's about 20 billion motels in the area?

Indeed, I was just down there last week. I happened to visit the Pavilion, and it's a nice little family park. The Hurricane is just that, a rough, edgy, white knuckle ride.
I think they should leave the park there, it certainly brings in some money.

I'm with you Swampfoxer. I walked through that blighted area you mentioned, and it definitely could use help way more than the Pavilion itself!

I was at the park the other day less than a half-hour before it opened and there wasn't a sole in the park. Personally I really don't care if the park is dismantled. The park is rather small and people don't want to bear hot Mytle Beach weather for a park with no shade. Overall I'd rather do other things involving air conditioning and pools/ocean rather than frying to death in a small Amusement Park.
