Nexton Named Best Master-Planned Community in the U.S. by NAHB



Press Release

Nexton was recently recognized as the top master-planned community in the U.S. by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

During NAHB’s 2021 Nationals virtual ceremony on March 5th, Nexton received Gold Awards for Best Master-Planned Community in the U.S. and Best Brochure (Master-Planned Community). The community was also recognized with Silver Awards for Best Community Welcome Center and Best Signage.

“Since its inception, our talented team recognized that Nexton offered a unique opportunity.  We set out to develop a sustainable, mixed-use, master-planned community that applied thoughtful architecture and innovative design in a socially responsible way,” said Nexton’s Vice President of Operations Brent Gibadlo.  “Six short years later, Nexton is a regional commercial hub, comprised of corporate headquarters, fine dining, shopping and an array of recreational choices. And most importantly, Nexton is home for over 6,000 people living in a vibrant environment where everything is connected by nature and technology.”

Presented annually by the NAHB, The Nationals recognizes the year’s most outstanding work in residential real estate sales, marketing and design by individuals and communities across the country. Showcasing the most exciting trends in new home sales and marketing throughout the U.S., Gold Award winners were selected from a field of over 900 entries by a panel of industry professionals.

“The Nationals are the most prestigious awards of their kind, setting the benchmark for innovations in new home design, marketing and sales,” said Angela Harris, chairperson of the Nationals. “NAHB’s commitment to recognizing originality, imagination and success has been exemplified by its award winners since the competition’s inception.”

Located on 5,000 acres in the heart of Charleston’s I-26 growth corridor, Nexton has been recognized as an international model for master planned communities. It features an array of new homes by hand-picked homebuilders, as well as luxury apartments, commercial and office space, and destination dining and shopping.

“Through its cornerstones of wellness, design, innovation and diversity, Nexton constantly strives to improve the lives of people who live and work here,” said Nexton’s Marketing Director Cassie Cataline. “We’ve created a place that draws people together around shared ideas and values, and we are proud to be recognized as the best in the country.”

Nexton is a lifestyle-driven community that blends the best of live, work and play – all within close proximity to the area’s top employers, including Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, and Boeing. Having recently surpassed its 1,500th home-sale milestone, Nexton is poised for growth on all fronts in 2021.

In November 2020, the community was named the Best Master Planned Community in South Carolina by the Home Builders Association of South Carolina (HBASC) for demonstrating excellence in forward-thinking design and sustainable land planning. Nexton was also recognized as a Top 50 Selling Master-Planned Community in the U.S. by Robert Charles Lesser & Co. (RCLCO).
