Triple S Pier Demolition Underway; Sportsmans Pier Sold
Deconstruction of the Triple S Pier in Atlantic Beach is underway and another of North Carolina's piers has fallen victim to the pressure from the coastal real estate boom. Despite the recent proposal from NC Sea Grant to protect existing coastal developments through economic assistance, it's a little too late for Triple S Pier. We're all going to miss this Atlantic Beach landmark and it seems now that another may soon be sharing its fate. Sportsmans Pier has also been recently sold, and while no one is certain of the pier's future, history seems to be repeating. More on the Triple S demolition is available from WCNT Greenville.
