New Economic Era for Belhaven

It's a $15 million project that has been three years in the making for Belhaven in Beaufort County.

Developers, county and state leaders broke ground Wednesday on the waterfront to build 36 luxury condominiums, including over 40 boat slips.

Developers say once completed each unit, which will have two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths overlooking the water, will be worth $400,000 to 500,000 a piece.

Developers hope to have the condos livable by sometime this summer.
