Services requiring higher-speed internet can also enhance security and energy management features that save homeowners money.

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCIV) – Developers and city leaders announced Wednesday a multi-million dollar business expansion project.
The development is a joint venture with MeadWestvaco Corporation and The Rockefeller Group called Nexton. It would include apartments, office space, hotels, parks and retail.
“I think it’s going to be an opportunity for the people who live here to see even more things happening that they can attend, events, cultural affairs, restaurants, maybe even another movie theater,” said Mayor Bill Collins of Summerville.
The first building on the 4,500-acre stretch of land has already begun construction. Developers say the project has the potential to lure in new jobs.
“We’ve seen in the past, business from outside the Lowcountry looking for proper places to relocate. And usually their criteria (is) strong community, good schools, class A office space and modern technology,” said Kenneth Seeger, the president of MWV Community Development and Land Management.
