Nexton, a 5,000-acre master-planned community in the heart of Charleston’s growth corridor, has emerged as a national Top-50 selling master-planned community by RCLCO and a world-class residential and commercial destination. After launching with commercial nodes to drive regional employment, Nexton added outposts of the city’s best shopping and dining venues to attract homebuyers, workers, and tourists.

Nexton has a fully segmented residential program designed to attract renters, first-time buyers, move-ups, and retirees. Thoughtful planning and innovative design brought together a modern, mixed-use plan. The Nexton development team envisioned and executed the built environment, but the thousands of people who live and work here every day bring the community to life. The mix of uses in six short years is staggering: 2,000 homes and townhomes, five apartment buildings, built-for-rent single-family, class-A office, garden office, medical office, services, schools and a destination shopping and dining district. There are millions of sf of commercial and thousands of homes to follow. All these elements work together to provide everything needed in daily life, thus taking cars off local roads.
