CHARLESTON, SC - Quarterra Multifamily, a subsidiary of Lennar Corporation and a vertically integrated multifamily apartment builder, developer and asset manager, announced the opening of Cormac Apartments. Cormac is a mixed-use apartment community on Charleston's upper peninsula and represents the first joint venture between QMF and Cresset Partners and was capitalized in their Cresset Diversified Qualified Opportunity Zone (QOZ) Fund I.
Cormac, featuring 303 apartment homes and 13,068 square feet of retail space, as well as a pair of public ground level courtyards – offers an unprecedented level of modern living to the rapidly growing North Morrison "NoMo" district. The mid-rise community's unique and enviable location puts residents within easy reach of employment centers and dining options, as well as entertainment and sporting venues. It also provides prime access to Downtown Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, Park Circle in North Charleston, and West Ashley.
"Cormac represents a significant step in the evolution of Charleston's Upper Peninsula district, bringing an element of sophistication through next-level living and retail opportunities," said Beach Corontzes, development manager for Quarterra. "The Upper Peninsula has become a destination dining and nightlife locale, not to mention a coveted neighborhood to call home. We're excited to welcome residents and help to accelerate the surging momentum in the neighborhood."
Situated at 1310 Meeting Street Road, Cormac is central to regional employment, shopping, dining and entertainment options.
