Nexton is…

...anything but ordinary.

We're WestRock, a Fortune 500 company with deep roots in the Charleston region. For decades we've nurtured and cultivated this land for its timber. But now its location and scale make it the next logical step of growth for metro Charleston and one of the region's most important employment centers. (In fact we've located the new headquarters for WestRocks's community development group in Nexton's very first corporate building.)

So we've brought in the best local and national talent to help us create a new model for town-building. One that weaves together new homes, office and retail space to form a tight-knit community. One that looks forward and back, combining the latest ideas for connectivity and efficiency with the wisdom of Charleston's inspired, walkable cityscape and historic neighborhoods. Where the community itself plays an active support role for businesses and residents. Improving productivity. Simplifying and enriching everyday life. And where everything about the place is designed to help people feel more connected. To the various parts of their lives. To each other. To the Lowcountry. And to the rest of the world.
