Burton states, “We have been building active adult communities for over 46 years. We are excited to bring this pioneering spirit to the area of Charleston. The tremendous response to the Homesite Preview Day shows that people are interested in the community, trust our brand and know they will be moving into a great home. Active adults who become residents of a Del Webb community understand that it’s not just about purchasing a home; it’s about participating in an active lifestyle and living amongst peers.”

Active adult communities historically have less strain on municipalities than their counterparts while still contributing positively to the local economy and its residents. The new Del Webb development will generate an estimated $22.6 million in tax revenue upon the completed sale of their 1,000 homes. In addition, an estimated $3.9 million in property tax revenue will be generated annually for Berkeley County.
