1980 ushers in a new phase of growth in Pine Knoll Shores. It is the decade of McGinnis Point and Beacon’s Reach as well smaller multi-family properties. Side-by-side patio homes, town houses and condominiums encourage more North Carolinians to buy second homes here. There are plans to build a shopping center or “village,” which is to contain a supermarket, drugstore, variety store, bank and restaurants. But, the greatest source of real growth is in residential development by what the paper generally refers to as “the Roosevelt Interest.”
