Developers have broken ground on a 336-unit luxury apartment community in Charleston near the intersection of Clements Ferry Road and Charleston Regional Parkway

Developers plan for construction to be far enough along to start leasing for fall 2024 at Aventon Mikasa. (Rendering/Provided)Aventon Companies, a multifamily developer and general contractor with active projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, announced the start of construction in a news release.

Aventon Mikasa will house 336 units built over 19 acres and consist of four-story elevator-serviced buildings. Construction is expected to be complete to starting leasing for fall 2024.

Options are one, two and three-bedroom floorplans, the news release said. Also included are a clubhouse with remote working lounge, game room and fitness center as well as a resort-style pool.

"With the debut of Aventon Mikasa, we look forward to deepening our footprint here in Charleston, a high-end and rapidly growing, yet still underserved, community," Ron Perera, senior managing director, said in the news release. "The property will not only offer close proximity to the historic downtown Charleston peninsula but will also serve as the ideal commuting location for residents in this ultimate live, work and play destination."

Aventon Mikasa's buildings were designed by Scott + Cormia of Orlando, Fla., with interior design curated by Studio 5 Interiors Inc. of Alpharetta, Ga. Civil and landscaping for the property was created by Charleston engineering firm Thomas & Hutton.

Since 2019, Aventon Companies has assembled $2 billion portfolio of ground-up developments bringing more than 9,000 Aventon-branded apartment homes to Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and the Mid-Atlantic, the company said in the release.
