Affordable housing to break ground near Charleston's historic Angel Oak

Angel Oak

An affordable housing development will break ground in the spring near the historic Angel Oak Tree on Johns Island.

Columbia-based Mungo Construction plans to start construction in April at Maybank Highway and Bohicket Road on Esau Jenkins Village, a 72-unit development for Sea Island Comprehensive Health Care Corp.

The nonprofit, which has an office in front of the 7-acre development site, operates programs for senior citizens and the disabled in parts of Charleston and Colleton counties.

The construction site abuts a nearly 19-acre undeveloped tract owned by Angel Oak Park LLC, 6.5 acres owned by the city of Charleston around the Angel Oak Tree and nearly 8 acres owned by St. Johns Church.

An existing 88-unit, single-story, subsidized housing complex affiliated with Sea Island Comprehensive is across the highway.

Mungo said it's been involved in several affordable housing developments across South Carolina, including working with the North Charleston Housing Authority.
