PRESS RELEASE: FrontDoor Communities Breaks Ground on Freeman’s Point in James Island

CHARLESTON, SC - Last week, FrontDoor Communities celebrated the groundbreaking of Freeman’s Point, a 130 home community on 40 acres located just south of historic downtown Charleston in James Island. The master-planned community features a 1,000 linear foot waterfront park – accessible to every homeowner – that includes an amenities center, community dock, access to ecotourism and a series of walking trails all adjacent to Seaside Creek.

“At FrontDoor Communities, we deliver better homes through quality design,” said Terry Russell, CEO of FrontDoor Communities. “Not only will Freeman’s Point offer high-quality homes with thoughtful design, but the community’s walking trails, waterfront park and countless other outdoor amenities reinforce our objective to embrace the local community’s devotion to the outdoors by fostering an active lifestyle.”

Construction on the project is expected to begin later this year, and is estimated to bring hundreds of jobs to the local community over the next several years. Homes will range in price from the upper-$300,000s and will be available in 2014. The site plan of the first phase and waterfront park design were both unveiled during the groundbreaking ceremony.

FrontDoor is developing Freeman’s Point in a joint venture with MiddleStreet Partners, an award-winning, Charleston-based residential developer.

Located close to top-notch schools, Freeman’s Point is FrontDoor’s third community in Charleston and the company’s first in desirable James Island.
