Lanier Islands still mulling what to do with old PineIsle site
More than a decade after closing the old PineIsle Resort on Lanier Islands, the South Hall resort is trying to decide what to do with the now-vacant property.
The idea of a technology-oriented training and conference center at Lanier Islands resort in South Hall has been given a thumb’s down by a Chicago-based consulting firm. But that doesn’t mean the resort has ditched the idea of a second hotel on the resort — or some other use of a long-vacant 200-acre site once occupied by PineIsle resort. “We’re taking the next step trying to determine what is the highest and best use of that site,” Lanier Islands Vice President Grier Todd said last week.
