The Air Force base is located next to the Charleston International Airport. In 2009, Boeing Aircraft moved to North Charleston, establishing it as one of the major aircraft centers of the world. It is a now a thriving industrial city.
Homes vary from condominiums to exclusive homes. Residents range from single professionals, to families with kids, to retirees.
One of the first areas to be designed and developed was Park Circle, which included sections for industrial, commercial, and residential usage. Park Circle was planned as one of only two English Garden Style communities in the US and most of the original planning concept remains today.
The properties in the area are priced in the range of $100,000 to $500,000, and up.
There are many subdivisions to choose from, and many offer a wide-range of amenities.
