Federal Capital Partners® (FCP) announces the $16.37 million acquisition of Gates at Summerville, a 232-unit, one, two and three bedroom garden-style apartment community in the Summerville area of Charleston, SC. The Gates at Summerville marks FCP’s 6 th investment in the Charleston area.

We’re excited to add this acquisition to our growing portfolio in the booming Charleston market.”

FCP plans to add a dog park and a sport court and improve the landscaping, common areas and curb appeal in order to enhance the community experience for residents and their families.
