A new upscale apartment community is now under construction near Summerville, and a recently completed Mount Pleasant office building lands two new tenants.
New Jersey-based Sharbell Development Corp. broke ground in mid-June on the first 64 units in The Lofts in the mixed-use Downtown Nexton.
The one- and two-bedroom apartments are being built on 3.3 acres at Metropolitan Avenue and Sigma Drive in the Nexton community. The units will be built above 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, restaurant and service-industry space.
The amenities will include a clubhouse, pool, firepit, cabanas, dog park, and outdoor café tables and bar area.
The new residences are the second multifamily property in Downtown Nexton. Woodfield Development of Charleston is building the 304-unit Ames Apartments.
Downtown Nexton encompasses about 100 acres between Sigma Drive and Brighton Park Boulevard. When completed, it will offer retail, dining, hospitality, residential, service, office and commercial options.
In Mount Pleasant, the recently completed 32,400-square-foot office building at 302 Wingo Way near the base of the Ravenel Bridge is now home to Center Park Homes, which leased 8,855 square feet on the entire top floor, and dermatologist Dr. Gabriella Vasile, who leased 3,880 square feet on the third floor.
Building developer Raines, a Florence-based hospitality management, development and investment group, also occupies part of the third floor.
The commercial real estate firm Lee & Associates handled the leases.
A second phase of a new home community is offering new residences in an established but still growing Berkeley County mega-development.
The addition to Lochton at Cane Bay off U.S. Highway 176 west of Goose Creek will offer 50 homes with prices starting in the $400,000s.
Sizes will range from 2,068 square feet to 4,182 square feet for the three- to six-bedroom houses with two- to four-and-a-half bathrooms and a three-car garage option.
Nine floorplans are being offered for the one- and two-story homes. Most designs include a home office, flex/bonus room or extra bedroom. The first floor features 9-foot ceilings. Some inventory is available while other sites are build-ready. The 18-acre property includes a pond with wooded and/or protected wetland homesites available.
Energy-efficient features include tankless water heaters, LED lighting, natural gas heat and insulated windows.
Among the amenities are green space, playground, biking trails, pool, pavilion and high-speed fiber.
Built by Mungo Homes, the residences are being marketed by Carolina One New Homes. Lochton’s first phase had 55 houses.
