      MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- A new development in Mount Pleasant isn't even completed and it's already lost one of its tenants.

      According to a release from Maverick Southern Kitchens, the restaurant and the new owner of 'The Boulevard' have mutually agreed to end their contract.

      The contract was originally made with the Beach Company back in June 2013. The new owner said the opening of the new restaurant would be delayed by 4-5 months.

      "Construction of the restaurant was set to begin September 1, 2013 when planners discovered that major building changes were needed to accommodate it." the release explained. "The design, engineering and permitting of the changes were complete in mid-January, just as the property was sold to an institutional investor represented locally by Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC."

      The restaurant would have featured 145 seats in the dining room and full bar, with additional seating outside, and would have served dinner seven nights a week with brunch on Sundays.

      "When we learned the process was delayed an additional four to five months, we decided the restaurant could not wait that much longer," said Dick Elliott, founder and President of Maverick Southern Kitchens. "We were excited to be part of the revitalization of Coleman Boulevard, so we're disappointed that won't happen."
