The Miami-based home builder recently asked state environmental regulators for permits for stormwater, wastewater and water line construction.

The development is part of the 72,000-acre East Edisto Tract. About 53,000 acres that flank the Edisto River in the tract in Dorchester and Charleston counties are protected from development under a 2016 agreement.
