What's Happening in Cayce, SC?

First, it was SCANA's decision to relocate from downtown Columbia to the Frink Street area at I-77 in Cayce.  That was late 2009 with over 1,000 employees.  The next big company to open was Amazon in Fall 2011 in a 1.25-million-square-foot fulfillment center with approximately 1,000 employees.  And, coming soon will be Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation.   The new $313 million pharmaceutical campus is expected to generate 707 new jobs.  These companies (and more) are all located in the Saxe Gotha Industrial Park in Lexington County near the intersection of Interstates 26 and 77.

What follows next?  NEW HOMES.
Concord Park is located just off Frink Street and close to all of these fine companies.  I've already sold one new home in CONCORD PARK, a new homes subdivision developed by Mungo Homes.  Mungo builds their Concord Park homes with hauSmart - the new standard in homebuilding.  This new construction offers features for efficiency, affordability and convenience.   These homes offer quality construction at outstanding value.  Home prices are generally in the $150,000 to $200,000 price range.  Plans run in size from about 1600-2900 square feet.

In addition to being very close to SCANA and Amazon, Concord Park is also conveniently located to Columbia Metropolitan Airport, UPS and Fort Jackson.
