A developing master-planned community in Berkeley County that’s as big as the Charleston peninsula recently reached a housing milestone.
The 1,000th house recently sold in Nexton, a mixed-use development on 5,000 acres between Interstate 26 and U.S. Highway 176 near Summerville.
For perspective, last September about 600 houses had sold in three separate housing developments: Brighton Park Village, Del Webb and North Creek. At full build-out, Nexton will have nearly 7,000 homes.
It also could house as many residents as the current populations of Clemson, North Myrtle Beach or West Columbia, roughly between 16,000 and 20,000. That would make it as big as Moncks Corner and Georgetown combined.
