By Airman 1st Class Chacarra Walker Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

Forest City Military Communities, the privatized housing at Joint Base Charleston - Air Base, recently completed Phase 1F of the new housing development.

Phase 1F opened up 50 new homes on the base.

"The houses are built in phases," said Allison Pack, Forest City property manager. "We build about 40 to 50 homes each phase and a phase may take around six months."

According to Pack, currently, 265 homes have been built at JB Charleston. Phase 1A through 1F have been completed. Two more phases are scheduled to be completed by Aug. 2013.

"I'm excited to be able to offer the families new homes," said Pack. "Improving the quality of life for someone is great."

The estimated date for all the homes to be up and running is late Aug. of 2013.

Those living in Hunley Park will be the first occupants of the new homes. Families living off base wanting to move into the new housing development will be placed on a waiting list.

"Currently, single military members do not qualify for housing," said Pack. "The new homes are only available for military members and their families right now."

When construction is complete, a total of 335 new houses will have been built.
