Offering all of the benefits of living in both a major metropolitan area as well as a resort area, Hanahan also offers its 17,000-plus residents the best of small town life. Bordering North Charleston and just off Interstates 26 and 526, the city offers a central location with quick and convenient access to the shops and attractions of Charleston 16 miles to the south as well as the beaches of the Isle of Palms less than 40 minutes away.
Additionally, the town is fewer than a dozen miles from both the Charleston International Airport and Charleston Air Force Base. And with the adjoining city of North Charleston being the state’s retail sales leader for 21 years, residents can take advantage of the variety of products and services found there.
Sharing a rich antebellam tradition with North Charleston, Goose Creek and other communities, the town sits on the site of former plantation lands where cotton, rice, indigo and other crops were grown. More recently, the town’s history has been closely connected with the Naval Weapons Station Charleston, which merged with the Charleston Air Force Base in 2010 to become Joint Base Charleston. In its various facilities in Hanahan, North Charleston and Goose Creek, Joint Base Charleston employs more than 20,000 active duty, reserve and civilian personnel. The town’s economy also benefits from a major FedEx distribution center and North Charleston’s massive Boeing aircraft assembly plant that opened in 2011.
Hanahan homes represent a wide cross-section of styles and price points, with the current average sales price just under $220,000. Virtually any style home is available, from stylish condos, to inexpensive single-family fixer-uppers in well-established neighborhoods, to luxury new construction in planned developments.
