Nexton Named Best Master Planned Community in South Carolina

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

Demonstrating excellence in forward-thinking design and sustainable land planning, Nexton, South Carolina’s most innovative and walkable community, was awarded the 2020 Pinnacle Award for Best Community by the Home Builders Association of South Carolina (HBASC).

Considered the HBASC’s most prestigious honor, the Pinnacle Awards recognize professionals in the home building industry who have achieved the highest standards of quality craftsmanship, innovative problem solving and customer satisfaction. This year, the Pinnacle Awards acknowledged achievements in five categories including new home construction, remodel projects, energy efficiency, subdivision/community and marketing.

“At its inception, Nexton embraced the cornerstones of design, innovation and diversity to create a community that nurtures the symbiotic relationship between people, home, nature, work and health,” said Nexton’s Marketing Director Cassie Cataline. “Today, Nexton continues to be a leader in modern community design, fostering large-scale commercial and residential growth in a business-friendly environment where residents can navigate from career to retirement without leaving the place they love.”

Located on 5,000 acres in the heart of Charleston’s I-26 growth corridor, Nexton is considered a national model for master planned communities, featuring four residential villages, three luxury apartment communities, 300,000 square feet of office space, state-of-the-art schools, 20 miles of trails, 2,000 acres of green space and multiple commercial nodes.

“In less than five years, Nexton’s substantial economic growth and attractive quality of life have helped generate the third largest employment hub in metro Charleston, resulting in a crucial demand for homes, schools and community for the region’s workforce,” said Brent Gibadlo, vice president and general manager of Nexton. “By listening to the market and understanding who’s coming here and what our community can do to better their businesses and lives, Nexton has become the top-selling community in the region.”

Nexton is a lifestyle-driven destination that artfully blends the best of live, work and play – all within close proximity to the area’s top employers, including Volvo, Mercedes-Benz and Boeing. Despite the many obstacles 2020 presented, Nexton exceeded its 2020 sales goals in September and surpassed its 1,200th home-sales milestone earlier this year. In October, the community unveiled its next development chapter with Midtown, featuring more than 2,500 single-family homes, townhomes and multifamily residences.
