The 268-unit Link Apartments Mixson, formerly Flats at Mixson, in North Charleston will begin offering leases on the first 30 units on Thursday.
Residents were forced to vacate the Flats at Mixson in May 2016 because of structural defects that plagued the buildings.
New residents will begin moving into the repaired apartments in August.
Ken Gepfert, spokesman for Grubb Properties, which owns Link Apartments Mixson, said the plan from there is to open another one of the 10 buildings each month, with the goal of having them all open by next summer.
“We are proud to restore this residential community for North Charleston and the thriving Park Circle neighborhood,” said Clay Grubb, CEO of Grubb Properties. “We have worked closely with North Charleston city officials and partnered with local engineers to carefully repair and upgrade the property.”
Grubb Properties, based in Charlotte, bought the apartment complex from Jamestown L.P. for $5.3 million in October. Jamestown was told in June 2016 to repair or demolish the water-damaged buildings by December. When Grubb bought the buildings, North Charleston’s Public Safety and Housing Committee extended the deadline to the end of 2018.
In a news release, Grubb Properties said the newly renovated complex will have a coffee lounge, screened porches, a community garden, a fitness center, a swimming pool and a dog park.
Link Apartments is a national brand of apartment complexes, with other communities in Greenville, Raleigh, Richmond, Va., and Winston-Salem, N.C.
