SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (PRWEB) July 18, 2016

The state’s first gigabit community, opened in Spring 2015, and sales at Nexton have been as supercharged as the internet speeds.

Earlier this week, Nexton ( celebrated the sale of its 100th home, confirming that the marketplace demands what the community delivers: a tech-friendly neighborhood with a new school within walking distance, move-in ready homes, a network of trails and a vibrant social scene focused around the community pool. All with easy access to major commuting centers, area businesses and the greater Charleston region.

“Nexton has emerged as one of the most successful communities in the region,” said Kenneth T. Seeger, president, WestRock Land and Development. “Thoughtful, responsive community planning has made this a place that people want to call home. We’re grateful for such an enthusiastic response and look forward to the momentum continuing.”

Located directly on I-26, the region’s most important commuter route, Nexton’s commercial center takes full advantage of its proximity to the region’s fastest growing job hub. With Class A offices, GigaFi infrastructure, and easy access the location continues to attract significant investment.

In addition to attracting families and jobs, Nexton has also become a popular place for community gatherings. Events at Brown Family Park include a free Piccolo Spoleto performance and the fully sanctioned, 2,000-runner Cocoa Cup 5K.

Seeger noted that Nexton is attracting a mix of locals and relocating residents. “We’re seeing a diverse community of residents, each of whom seems to share that very modern desire for unique experiences and meaningful connections.”

The Charleston Homebuilders Association named Nexton, “Master Planned Community of the Year.” And the best is yet to come: Nexton is unveiling numerous new home styles and releasing additional homesites this year. In 2018, the new Nexton Parkway interchange, currently under construction at exit 197, will open and pave the way for new office and retail space.
