SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCSC) - The Nexton community in Summerville is planning to grow in 2021.
The master-planned community has already brought new homes, restaurants, hotels, and businesses to the I-26 corridor.
Nexton’s Vice President of Operations, Brent Gibadlo, says they are creating a community environment where individuals can thrive.
“By making a genuine effort to understand the market and recognizing Nexton’s unique opportunity to positively impact our customers, we have created an ergonomic community plan that applies thoughtful architecture, innovative design and social responsibility in order to optimize human well-being,” Gibadlo said.
Work is expected to begin on more than 500 new homes in Nexton within the next year. Developers hope that some of these homes will be completed by the Summer of 2022.
Developers say the first 250 homes in the Midtown development phase of Nexton are expected to be delivered in 2021.
The Lou Hammond Group says the Birmingham, Alabama-based Capstone Communities recently announced the introduction of 282 single-family, for-rent homes at Nexton. These rental homes are scheduled to be delivered in late 2021 and be completed in the Summer of 2022.
Another 100 lots by TrueHomes are planned for the North Creek neighborhood this year as well.
In February, the Lou Hammond Group says they plan to see the groundbreaking of the Midtown Club. It’s a swim and fitness center that will serve the Nexton Residential Association.
A full-service First Citizens Bank branch is expected to open at Nexton in late 2021. Construction recently began in January on the new bank.
Developers are also planning to break ground on “Downtown Nexton” this year. The downtown area of Nexton will be separate from the existing Nexton Square, where events like the Sounds on the Square have taken place. However, Downtown Nexton is expected to be located within walking distance of Nexton Sqaure.
Downtown Nexton is planned to be 100-acres and come between Brighton Park Boulevard and Sigma Drive.
More specifics will be shared soon on the downtown area, but initial plans show it will have a new gas station and offer multifamily community opportunities.
