There’s been no shortage of news over the past 30 months about office vacancies. In large gateway cities, office occupancies fell dramatically during the pandemic as staffs found they could work from home. Moreover, occupancies have remained stubbornly low, as employers and staff faced off over remote work.
Though the weeks since Labor Day have seen a number of firms’ employees return to in-office mode, many corporate tenants in the nation’s biggest office markets are downsizing to considerably less space.
But let’s pause before assuming the well-reported empty office is the ubiquitous norm. In an assortment of cities in the Southeast U.S., the opposite trend has taken hold. Developers and communities in Alabama and South Carolina, for instance, have noted growing tenant interest in office space, particularly in high-end office buildings.
The Jasper, a luxury 12-story, mixed-use structure in the historic downtown district of Charleston, S.C., features 75,000 square feet of AAA office space, as well as 25,000 square feet of first-floor retail space and 219 luxury multifamily units. All spaces in The Beach Company building, which touts its riverside geography, are currently filled.
The Range, situated within a designated Opportunity Zone in the western end of downtown Huntsville, Ala., not far from acclaimed restaurants, museums and parks, is a commercial office development offering three floors and 49,000 square feet of Class A commercial office space. Walking a fine line between big-city office environments and those with a small-town vibe, The Range offers pedestrian-friendly access to a variety of the Rocket City’s most popular dining, retail and entertainment options. That may be why it recently welcomed two new corporate tenants, Eyecare Partners and Bridgeworth Financial Services.
“People are leaving western and northeastern markets for small and mid-sized Southern cities like Huntsville,” says J.C. Darby, development manager at The Beach Company. “In the past decade Huntsville has become Alabama’s No. 1 city with the addition of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in investment from companies like Mazda, Toyota, The Boeing Company and Remington, all things The Beach Company looks for when scouting development sites.
“The Range is equidistant to the Interstate and all of Huntsville’s economic drivers, including the medical district, Cummings Research Park, NASA’s Space Flight Center and Redstone Arsenal. And we are predicting occupancy growth as a result of this, its walkability and the structure’s distinctive modern design.”
Near job hubs
Meanwhile, demand for office space sparked the development of two new office buildings in Nexton, a master-planned Summerville, S.C. community situated near the region’s top employers, including Volvo and Boeing. One, Atelier Downtown Nexton, offers two-story buildings featuring 2,500 to 18,000-square-foot spaces in a campus like setting where office structures are connected by walking trails.
Developed by Sharbell Development Corp. of New Jersey, the development is the latest within the live-work-play milieu of Downtown Nexton. “The Southeastern U.S. has appealed to Sharbell for years, especially South Carolina, due to its population and job growth, as well as its burgeoning diversity,” says the company’s Thomas Troy.
“Many companies are relocating to the South in search of lower costs and higher quality of life for employees, and our developments reflect that shift.”
Not to be outdone, Workplace at Nexton, a Class A office park within the community, offers 3,000 to 20,000-square-foot spaces, and connectivity to Nexton’s residential side. Residents can walk to Nexton Square’s shopping, hotel and other commercial businesses. Workplace at Nexton’s office spaces had all been claimed before construction was completed, and there’s been no attrition.
“Garden office space with minimal shared common spaces, private entrances and outdoor parks have become the gold standard for commercial leasing in the Charleston, S.C. region,” says Cassie Cataline, Nexton director of marketing.
“Leasing interest for Workplace at Nexton was so great we are developing additional commercial campuses, such as The Hub, to provide office, retail and medical space to address this demand.”

MONCKS CORNER — Voters approved two separate 1 percent sales taxes to pay for infrastructure and school construction projects in rapidly developing Berkeley County.
The infrastructure tax, which will be collected by the county, passed with 74 percent of the vote. The education capital improvements tax, which will be collected by the Berkeley County School District, passed with 71 percent of the vote.
The infrastructure tax is a continuation of a seven-year tax voters first approved in 2008 to pay for road improvements throughout the county. Officials have touted the completion of projects like Phase 1 of the widening on Clements Ferry Road as proof of the tax’s success.
The referendum also asked voters to approve $89 million in obligation bonds to pay for initial projects while the tax is first being collected. It will be repaid with money from the tax. Voters passed it with 71 percent of the vote.
The infrastructure tax will pay for a $74 million second phase of widening Clements Ferry on Daniel Island; two phases, each about $30.4 million, of widening Henry Brown Boulevard in Goose Creek; $58 million worth of widening and intersection improvements along Interstate 26 in the Jedburg area; and a $61 million widening project of U.S. Highway 176 between U.S. 17A and Nexton Parkway.
Ten percent of the money collected from the tax will go to preserve green space throughout the county. It received support from several conservation groups, including the Coastal Conservation League and the Conservation Voters of South Carolina.
“In poll after poll, voters say Berkeley County is growing too fast, leading to record losses of open space and wildlife habitat, polluting our rivers and lakes, and threatening our quality of life,” John Tynan, executive director of CVSC, said in a statement. “With today’s overwhelming YES vote on the transportation and greenspace referendum, Berkeley County voters sent a resounding message that they value their quality of life and the environment.”
The education capital projects is a new seven-year tax that will pay for three new schools, additions to four more and improvements to each of the high schools’ athletic facilities.
“I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our community for their support and commitment to our students and schools,” said district Superintendent Deon Jackson in a statement Nov. 9. “Our students deserve first class facilities and ample space to learn. With this overwhelming vote in favor of the educational capital improvements referendum, we will get to work planning for and completing the projects as approved.”
The district is growing by as many as 1,000 students a year as more people move into developments like Nexton, Carnes Crossroads and Cane Bay.
District officials have said they will look into other ways to fund the capital projects if the referendum does not pass.
Next community in Nexton to break ground
Contributing WriterThe local master planned community named the best in the nation has begun work on another phase, on the way to 7,500 residences.

The local master planned community named the best in the nation has begun work on another phase, on the way to 7,500 residences. This new phase of the Nexton community in Summerville and Berkeley County is expected to add apartments for rent, hotel, office space and 150,000 square feet of shopping and dining space when it is completely built out over the next five to seven years.
Nexton has sold nearly 24 acres to Charlotte-based Crosland Southeast, which plans to develop the new One Nexton segment in multiple phases, starting this coming summer. The first phase of One Nexton will include 351 new apartments and 37,500 square feet of retail space anchored by a Publix supermarket.
One Nexton is consistent with the mixed-use development philosophy of the larger Nexton community, which sits between Interstate 26 and U.S. Highway 176 and was named the “Master-Planned Community of the Year” in 2021 by the National Association of Homebuilders.
Nexton sold 456 homes in 2020 and another 576 in 2021 to earn a spot on the RCLCO Real Estate Advisors list of fastest-growing planned communities. More than 1,800 homes currently comprise greater Nexton, including 250 under construction.
Located at the northeast corner of Brighton Park Boulevard and Nexton Parkway, the first phase of One Nexton will break ground in the summer and is expected to be complete in the fall of 2024.
“One Nexton illustrates that Nexton continues to be a national leader in modern community design,” said Brent Gibadlo, vice president and general manager of Nexton. “By fostering thoughtful commercial and residential growth along Charleston’s I-26 growth corridor, we can provide everything our residents want and need while cutting down on commute times and improving quality of life by allowing them to live, work and play and shop all within a short walk or drive from their homes.”
One Nexton will include green space, parks and trails that connect to the rest of Nexton. The master plan for the entire Nexton development calls for 50 miles of walking/biking trails; 2,000 of the total 5,000 acres set aside for woodlands, wetlands and open space; and 400 acres of office, commercial and retail.
One Nexton is the latest phase of the community, built one section at a time over the past decade. Originally developed by WestRock, the real estate company that was formed from lumber giant MeadWestvaco. Today, the development is under development by Brookfield Residential, which acquired the previous developer, Newland, last year.
Nexton’s previous phase to begin development was Midtown, five districts built around a central area of shops, restaurants and a wellness center complete with tennis center, lap pool, yoga studio and more. That followed on the heels last year of Downtown Nexton, 100 acres between Sigma Drive and Brighton Park offering the same amenities and walkability.

Tatum here. Did you know there’s a new Viva Chicken location in Nexton? If you love chicken, Peruvian food, or exploring Nexton’s restaurant scene, this spot should be on your radar.
Viva Chicken is a Peruvian rotisserie chicken joint whose co-founder is from Peru. The menu includes bowls, salads, sandwiches, and rotisserie chicken or pollo a la brasa.
I recently got to check out the new location in Summerville. Keep reading for insider tips (read: what to order) + discover how you can Try This.
What we tried (with pricing):
I tried the quarter chicken with yuca + plantains ($9.55), the maracuya juice ($3.25), and a churro ($3.50). My pollo a la brasa was crisped to perfection + I got the huacatay sauce for a bit of a kick.
When I bit into the yuca (which is like a potato) I thought I’d fried + gone to heaven. Pro tip: Dip the yuca in the huancaina cheese sauce or pair it with maracuya for a sweet and tangy complement.
What not to miss:
If you’re craving pollo, order the quarter, half, or whole chicken with sides like cilantro rice, green beans, and plantains. The chicken is charcoal-fired + marinated in spices.
The eatery has plenty of healthy options like the Andina Power Food or the Inca Wrap. Plus, the menu is 70% vegetarian with the option to add a protein.
Choose from three sauces (all made in-house daily):
And wet your whistle with one of three signature juices:
What we’re still talking about: I learned that Viva Chicken partnered with No Kid Hungry and donates 50 cents for every churro sold. Talk about a win-win.
Also, the outdoor patio was the perfect spot to eat. If it’s a nice day, order on the app ahead of time + enjoy your food in the sunshine. ??
How you can experience this:
There are several ways to get your fix — order through the Viva Chicken App, online, curbside, in-store, or over the phone. Pro tip: Download the app, make an account + start earning VivaPoints. Earn 750 points to reach Aji Status and receive $5 off, 2,000 points to reach Haucatay Status and receive $7.50 off, and 3,500 points to reach Rocoto Status and receive $10 off.
Getting there: After turning left onto Nexton Square Drive, turn left again when you see Poogan’s Southern Kitchen + Viva Chicken is up ahead. Luckily, there’s plenty of parking.

SUMMERVILLE — A Charlotte real estate company recently paid just over $12 million for nearly 24 acres in Nexton where a new mixed-use, grocery-anchored development will be built.
Crosland Southeast plans to build a Publix supermarket and 351 apartments on the western side of Nexton Parkway where Brighton Park Boulevard now ends. The property is undeveloped without any streets.
The site, called One Nexton, is directly across the road from a planned Harris Teeter supermarket and is less than a mile from U.S. Interstate 26.
The sales agreement calls for at least 54,000 square feet of retail construction to begin by March 22, 2023, with two more phases and an additional 31,000 square feet of commercial development by one year later.
Publix announced in December it has leased property for the new store, but the Florida-based grocer did not say when construction will begin or how large the store will be.
If the Charlotte firm fails to start construction by the start date, the deed allows Nexton developer Brookfield Residential to repurchase the property at the original sales price.

Construction on the multifamily development is expected to start by late summer, with an opening in 2024.
Future phases will include a hotel, office space, additional retail and more apartments, according to a statement. In all, another 65,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space will be added.
Plans also call for an office core to be developed around One Nexton in about five to seven years.
The new project is part of Nexton’s effort to provide housing, services and job opportunities within its boundaries to allow residents to live, work, play and shop without long commutes, according to Brent Gibadlo, vice president and general manager of Nexton.
“One Nexton will create more employment and business development opportunities for Nexton while also providing meaningful spaces where people can connect and be active,” said Peter Pappas, managing partner with Crosland Southeast.
After One Nexton is completed, it will be connected to a network of parks and trails throughout the 5,000-acre Nexton development where as many as 7,500 homes could be built about 25 miles from downtown Charleston.
At the end of 2021, the subdivision, which is mostly in unincorporated Berkeley County, had 1,675 occupied homes and another 250 sold and under construction, according to spokeswoman Cassie Cataline.
At full buildout, Nexton could be home to 18,750 residents, larger than the current combined populations of Moncks Corner and Hollywood.
Just west of Nexton near the Nexton Parkway interchange at I-26 sits about 1,000 acres annexed by the town of Summerville in 2020. The tract almost abuts the One Nexton site.
It’s approved for up to 700 homes, and plans for the first 177 along Linda Way near Drop Off Drive have been presented to the town. Drop Off Drive is a frontage road between Nexton Parkway and Jedburg Road along the northern side of I-26.
