New office and retail center coming to Nexton's Parkway District

Home Telecom

Nexton announced today the groundbreaking of CoOp@Nexton, the first high-profile commercial parcel in Nexton’s Parkway District.

The new office and retail center will include several commercial businesses, a mid-rise multifamily community and a Refuel gas station and market, according to a news release. The area will also have green spaces, multiple trails and park elements.

Home Telecom, one of the largest independently owned telecom companies in South Carolina, is building a two-story, 20,000-square-foot office building featuring a service center. The buildings’ first floor will consist of the customer service center and an additional 5,200 square feet designated for traditional office space or ground-level retail. The second floor will offer 10-gigabit internet access and workshare or concept office space for small and start-up businesses. The building is expected to open by May 2020.

William S. Helmly, Home Telecom’s president and CEO, said the company is a “natural fit for CoOp@Nexton” as its technology partner.

“This high-tech building provides the ideal location and resources for employees and the inclusion of concept offices fills a void for Summerville’s growing number of small, entrepreneurial business owners,” Helmly said.

Gas station and convenience store, Refuel, is opening a 4,500-square-foot flagship store at CoOp@Nexton. This will be the brand’s sixth Charleston-area location.

The Spectrum Companies, a commercial real estate firm based in Charlotte, North Carolina, is developing a community of 345 apartment homes featuring a variety of floorplans as well as some carriage-style units, all with upscale design and finishes.

Amenities include a resort-style saltwater pool and expansive clubhouse with a two-story fitness center, pool-side lounge areas and grilling and fire pit areas across the property. Spectrum expects to break ground this fall and open the community first residents by spring 2021.

“This project will provide a high-quality multifamily housing option and offer easy access to employment centers and lifestyle amenities in this fast-growing part of the Charleston region,” Spectrum Vice President Ian Wagoner said.
