Baker Motor Company to Bring Automotive Dealership to Nexton

August 30th, 2016 by

Yesterday, Baker Motor Company of Charleston, Inc. announced its acquisition of a site at Nexton, a connected community in greater Charleston’s fastest growing job center.

A new Baker dealership will be located on a 12-plus acre site along I-26, adjacent to the future Nexton Town Center.  Baker Motor Company has not announced an opening date, but the company anticipates a multi-year build-out.

“The arrival of this luxury auto dealer in Summerville signals a new chapter in our retail story,” said Kenneth T. Seeger, president WestRock Land and Development. “We are excited by the resource this brings to greater Summerville, as well as to Nexton, which has always planned to include retail that is integrated into our walkable, sustainable community.”

Accessible from Sigma Drive, Brighton Park Boulevard and the new Nexton Parkway (opening 2017), the new Baker dealership will feature an assortment of new and pre-owned luxury auto brands.  The facility will feature a 30-car showroom, food court, gourmet coffee and snack bar, outdoor entertainment and event space, children’s play area, car wash facility for all Baker clients, and multiple client lounges.

Baker joins a growing commercial center at Nexton, which includes a Courtyard by Marriott, Carolina Ale House, Rainbow Childcare Center, CPM Credit Union, Starbucks (opening late 2016), a future Harris Teeter and numerous other announced entities.
