Imagine waking up and starting your morning with a run on a serene nature trail. Walk your children to school. Ride your bicycle to work. Work more efficiently with an unmatched GigaFi™ connection. Eat your lunch in the park underneath large trees. Admire the blooming azaleas on your stroll back to your state-of-the-art office. Meet up with friends after work for dinner and drinks on a nearby restaurant patio. On your way home, pop into a few boutiques for a little retail therapy. Then rest your head in a home built specifically with your Lowcountry lifestyle in mind. This is life at Nexton®.

Well-positioned at the front door of Summerville, Nexton sets a new standard for living. This innovative community combines the best low country -inspired features with new technology to simplify and enrich life. A fresh, playful, sophisticated concoction, Nexton is designed for life today.

“Every detail in Nexton has been thoughtfully conceived with your day in mind,” said Kenneth T. Seeger, president, MWV Community Development and Land Management. “We spent a lot of time listening to and learning from families in our community. They told us that they value their relationships with friends and family, healthier lifestyles and the conveniences of modern technology. We’ve gone to great lengths to create a place with their needs and aspirations in mind.”

Nexton is designed to help people feel more connected by combining new homes, apartments, offices and shopping in one tight-knit community. Home, work and play are all within walking or biking distance of one another in order to make everyday life more efficient. Nexton is a new choice for the Charleston market. It’s not urban. It’s not suburban. It’s innovative and accessible.

Located at the intersection of I-26 and Highway 17A, Nexton lies directly in the path of growth and is positioned to be the Low country’s next major job center. MWV, who nurtured and cultivated the land for timber, believes in the idea behind the community so much that they chose Nexton as the site of its new headquarters for its community development group. They share their state-of-the-art, Class-A office building with AIG Insurance and the administrative offices for Palmetto Primary Care Physicians. Office space remains available for lease.

Palmetto Primary Care Physicians, the state’s largest network of private healthcare providers, is also currently in the planning and design phases to bring an innovative health and wellness campus to Nexton. The group will be able to provide the latest developments in office, diagnostics, telemedicine and minimally invasive ambulatory care. Since Nexton is South Carolina’s first community-wide gigabit community network, it is an ideal location for this new medical campus. Provided by Home Telecom, GigaFi is a 100% fiber optic internet connection that is 100 times faster than the current average connection in South Carolina.

In planning Nexton, MWV was not just focused on jobs, but also making the community a great place to live. The community has a full range of housing options from single-family homes built by the area’s leading homebuilders to luxury apartments.

Keeping the goal of connectivity in mind, Nexton residents will have easy access to a network of parks and connected by over 50-miles of trails. Holding true their core value of environmental responsibility, they have chosen to preserve 2,000 acres of parks and nature including large trees, ponds and preserved green space. Not only does this reduce carbon emissions and recapture storm water runoff, but it makes Nexton an exceptionally beautiful place to call home.

To round out the community, Nexton Square will be home to an array of retail boutiques, restaurants and hotels and entertainment options. The Carolina Ale House opened a location at Nexton in the summer of 2014. It was the restaurant group’s most successful opening in the company’s 20-plus restaurant group. In the fall, Summerville’s first Courtyard Marriott hotel opened its doors and sold out in the first weekend.

To improve access to Nexton and Summerville, the Lowcountry Loop Trolley has a stop on its route just steps away from the Carolina Ale House, allowing for an easy commute to and from Historic Downtown Charleston. By the end of 2017, a new interchange on Interstate 26 will be added at Sheep Island Road between the existing Summerville and Jedburg exits and the Nexton Parkway, running from I-26 to 176 will be complete. . This will help accommodate the new residents moving to the area and allow ease of access for those visiting.

An extraordinary level of attention to detail can be seen in every facet of Nexton. Those living in the community’s first neighborhood, Brighton Park Village, will only be a short walk or bike ride from Berkeley County’s new Nexton Elementary School, slated to open for the 2015-16 school year. The 105,500 square foot elementary school will cater to approximately 900 students in the Summerville area. This represents a key piece of the county’s commitment to new and renovated schools. It is also central to Nexton’s long-term vision.
