More development coming to Park Circle as Mixson neighborhood grows

NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

One of the oldest areas in North Charleston is getting a new look.

The Mixson neighborhood near Park Circle is now in the next phase of development.

The Flats at Mixson will include 268 one and two bedroom apartments and will be priced somewhere between 800 and 1,400 a month. 18 homes have already been built and either sold or rented. More will be built in the next phase of construction.

The first group of apartments at The Flats at Mixson will be open by November.

Steve Corbin manages Corbin's Hitch Shop and has seen Durant Avenue transform over the decades.

"It's amazing to see how quickly it transitions from one aspect to another. One door closes, one opens is the way I see it," said Corbin.

The business has been on Durant Avenue for more than 40 years. The Mixson neighborhood didn't come along until 2007, but Corbin believes something new will be good for Park Circle.

"I think anytime you bring a variety of other people into the area and these kinds of opportunities with providing homes, you're going to revitalize and area. It's going to happen," said Corbin.

Mixson isn't the only environmentally friendly neighborhood going up. Just down the street Oak Terrace Preserve is expanding. Some neighbors living in the older part of Park Circle are ready to welcome their future neighbors.

"I think Park Circle is kind of an island and it's wonderful, but if you go a little bit this way or a little bit that way, it's not so wonderful. So we're kind of hoping that it will spread so that the crime will be diminished," said community member Amanda Wanninger.

The Mixson neighborhood will bring many things the community could use, from Basico, a new restaurant and with a membership, a pool and racquet club. Some neighbors say there's room for everyone.

"I think it could be a good combination of both. You could have the older neighborhoods and older homes and still bring in the new and make it trendy and new," said Wanninger.

The neighborhood will hold a grand opening sometime in early spring of next year.
