Mount Pleasant investors are buying multiple lots for a proposed mixed-use project

SUMMERVILLE – A pair of Mount Pleasant real estate investors paid nearly $ 10 million for approximately 70 acres along North Maple Street and Old Dairy Road in Summerville, where a mixed-use commercial and residential development is planned near the new Nexton Parkway Interchange on Interstate 26.

Thomas Massey of SUP Real Estate and business partner Jason Ray, through a subsidiary called CVEA Summerville I LLC, have bought four different plots in the region from different landowners since September 2020. They also have nearly 3 hectares under contract. The initials CVEA stand for the first letters of each of Ray’s four children.

The property is just within the Dorchester County line. Last year, just over 50 acres were added to the city under a mixed-use classification that allows for a variety of structures, including retail, offices, single-family homes and apartments.

Commercial real estate company NAI Charleston recently represented the seller of a 21 acre property that was incorporated into the city in 2014 and will be included in the master’s planned development. This section spans Maple Street and is bordered to the east by the Robyn Wynn subdivision.

The property is at the beginning of the four lanes of Maple Street leading to Interstate 26 and investors intend to see proper development.

“We’re trying to do something nice and don’t have mall after mall,” said Massey.

As soon as the entire property has been acquired, a development plan for commercial buildings along the street and a mixture of residential uses will be presented to the city for review in the spring.

Ray said he has been putting the project together since 2018 and, with Massey’s help, started purchasing the packages last fall.

He said land contract negotiations had taken a while and then the coronavirus reset the project as well, but he and Massey are now ready to move forward.

Ray said the project will be put together on site, which means he and Massey have a vested interest in making sure it tastes great.

“Our priority is to get things right and to listen to people,” said Ray. “I have a feeling that if we start there, everyone wins in the end. … We won’t just develop it and leave town.”

The next step is to do the engineering for the water, sewage and drainage before the project goes to the city’s Design Review Board for review.
