Providing affordable,
workforce housing

The Story

Key workers in the city of Charleston, SC including first responders, teachers, municipal city employees, hospitality and food & bev workers etc. are the lifeblood our metropolitan area. These workers are often priced out of homes within a short drive of their workplace, and instead, spend hours each day commuting. It’s not a surprise to know that there is a severe shortage of high quality, centrally located, energy efficient housing. Until now.

Union Heights Residential - part of an award winning Charleston-based development team with decades of experience - is offering naturally affordable, non-subsidized ownership housing, with monthly “all-in” house payments similar or equal to lesser rental alternatives.
