HARDEEVILLE, S.C. – Fueled by an increase in new residential construction, Hardeeville continues to be the Lowcountry region’s fastest-growing city since the 2010 Census figures were released.

According to data released by the U.S. Census Bureau, Hardeeville’s newest population estimate for 2018 stands at 6,515. The new figures reveal a 120 percent growth in the City’s population since the 2010 Census, with an average annual percent population increase of 15.09%.

City officials anticipate continued strong growth as the number of construction permits continue to rise year after year. A majority of the recent population growth has occurred in the newly developing areas of the City along US Highway 278 and Argent Boulevard corridors in the Sun City, Latitude Margaritaville, Hilton Head Lakes, and Hearthstone Lakes neighborhoods. The addition of the East Argent development will also add to the growth in population over the next ten years.

The numbers released do not reflect additional growth Hardeeville has seen since July 1, 2018. Since that time, over 300 additional Certificates of Occupancy have been issued by the City for both single-family and multi-family structures.

This is the last time city population estimates will be released before the 2020 Census.
