Phase 2 of the project includes the resident gate, bus shelter, island club refurbishment followed by enhancements to the Island Club Pool and Café restaurant.
“These renovation projects are to elevate and enhance the island community and increase property values, not simply maintain the status quo,” says Williams Island General Manager Janette Giddings, LCAM. “TheWilliams Island lifestyle is all about the amenities and we must offer 5-star resort-style amenities and services to our residents, members and guests.”
