Indian Land is located along Hwy 521 in the northern portion of Lancaster County, South Carolina, near the border of North Carolina. Indian Land also lies east of the fast-growing area of Fort Mill, SC. Ten years ago, Indian land was mainly a sleepy rural community with lots of farmland and rolling pastures. However, the development of nearby Ballantyne in Southern Mecklenburg County has drawn significant attention to this area because of its affordable land and proximity to Charlotte.
Several businesses have locations in Indian Land. There are two major business parks on either side of Charlotte Hwy: 521 Corporate Center, home of Red Ventures, and Edgewater, which houses URS Corp.and SOI. Other tenants in Edgewater's 90-acre park include a surgical center and a day-care center.
Another business park, Bailes Ridge is located on SC Hwy. 160 and is expected to be the new home of China's Keer Group Co. LTD, a new yarn spinning plant. Bailes Ridge already boasts Honeywell International, Howe Roofs, and Grace Communications as major tenants. The Enclave at Bailes Ridge adds a 246 unit luxury apartment community to the business park.
The addition of a Publix Grocery Chain across from Indian Land High School, Lowe's Home Improvement, and a Walmart Superstore next to the NC & SC state line have attracted a new surge in development to the area as well.
Successful new home communities in the Indian Land area include: BridgeMill, Chastain, Legacy Park, and Bretagne, a high-end European themed development with multi-million dollar homes. Del Webb has developed Sun City Carolina Lakes, a resort-style active adult retirement community that has also flourished in this area.
