The rebounding new homes construction market is showing progress as more projects continue to take shape throughout Charleston’s tri-county region.
Homes are going up in the Carnes Crossroads 2,300-acre project mixed-use development in Goose Creek.
One of the more obvious developments is the renovation underway on the massive old green barn, which was planted as a centerpiece for the development.
The 1939-built barn is being transformed into an open-air pavilion that will serve as a venue for special events, according to developer Daniel Island Co.
The firm says the barn will keep its original framework and other historical details.
The barn will eventually “serve as the centerpiece for a future resident amenity that will include a pool,” according to the company’s recent newsletter.
The project is expected to be completed this fall.
Also, builders Sabal Homes, David Weekley Homes and Eastwood Homes are offering incentives to nudge buyers to the closing table.
The three are offering a $15,000 credit toward options, upgrades and closing costs on homes in Carnes Crossroads.
Incentives have been a growing trend among new home builders.
Late last year, Ryland Homes offered a washer, dryer and refrigerator for buyers in select developments like Carolina Park, Charleston Oaks and Taylor Plantation.
New homes construction is also moving forward in Mount Pleasant.
Ryland Homes started building a new luxury model townhome called the Alexander at Six Fifty Six Coleman, a gated community at 656 Coleman Blvd.
Officials say the Alexander model will offer 2,414 square feet of living area with three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, in addition to a two-car garage and covered porch priced from $364,000.
Ryland has 22 home sites remaining at Six Fifty Six Coleman for the three-level luxury townhouses that range from 2,100 to 2,414 square feet, priced from $335,000 to $364,000.
