Let’s Be Friends

Our name means “friend” and we embody that. Not for us, but for you. We work to put everything in place to make you feel welcomed, invited, cherished. As any good friend would. We believe that a community has the power to show up for its people in all the ways that matter.

We strive to create an atmosphere that makes you want to kick up your feet and stay awhile. Where apartments feel like more than just a place to stay, it’s a place you don’t ever want to leave. Amenity spaces where neighbors, families, and pets can live, work, play, and bond together. A warmhearted energy permeating every inch. And a perfect location in downtown Nexton, placing you steps away from making your next friend at one of the local shops, restaurants, or neighborhood events.

Since you’re here, why not stay awhile?


We’re only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the best of Nexton. High-end spots to shop. One of a kind restaurants brimming with low country flavors. Lush trails beckoning you for an unplugged day. Grocery stores, offices, top-rated schools, major employers, the Medical University of South Carolina Hospital. Interstate I-26. You get it, the list goes on. And yes, Nexton was named the best master-planned community in the U.S. Not to brag or anything. But take a look around and its easy to understand why we consider Nexton to be our best friend. That is, after you, of course.
