SUMMERVILLE, S.C. – Today, Nexton, the most innovative and walkable community in South Carolina, announced the sale of its 2,500th home. This milestone is significant because it aligns with the 10th year anniversary of the community’s groundbreaking in March 2013. Named Best Mixed-use Community by the Charleston Home Builders Association and ranked #26 on RCLCO’s 50 Top-Selling Master-Planned Communities of 2022, Nexton has become a destination that includes dining, shopping and five hotels, catering to both business and leisure travel. In the last 10 years, Nexton has delivered 1.5 million square feet of commercial space which has attracted thousands of jobs and brought over 8,000 residents to the community.
“While this home sale milestone speaks to the success of Nexton, it also illustrates the increasing popularity of our region as a whole,” said Brent Gibadlo, Senior Vice President, Development for Brookfield Properties at Nexton. “We are providing more than a place to live and work – Nexton is a way of life, and we look forward to serving our community as we continue to grow over the next 10 years.”
Nexton is centrally located along I-26 with accessibility to the area’s major employers including Volvo, Boeing, Bosch and Mercedes Benz Vans. While new employers and regional job growth attract employees, the area also provides an attractive option for retirees with its proximity to Charleston International Airport and vibrant natural amenities that support a healthy and active lifestyle.
Currently in year 10 of its 20-year master plan, Nexton is a lifestyle-driven destination that artfully blends the best of live, work and play by offering conveniences such as state-of-the-art schools, modern infrastructure, 20 miles of trails and 2,000 acres of green space. The community’s four residential neighborhoods include apartments, built-for-rent homes, townhomes and a variety of for-sale single-family homes that cater to first-time buyers, executives and 55+ retirees.
In 2023, residents can expect to see construction on new Harris Teeter and Publix grocery stores, new retail and office space in Downtown Nexton, commercial developments including One Nexton and Dayfield Park and phased openings at The Hub at Nexton. Phase two of the Midtown neighborhood was also recently released featuring regional and national homebuilders.
