Excitement continues to build for the December 3rd grand opening of Del Webb Wilmington in North Carolina. Developers are preparing for the anticipated grand opening event that will include a holiday-themed festival with live music, a 5k, vendors, and several home models that will be open for tours.
This new 55+ community, which is part of the master-planned development of RiverLights located on River Road, will offer a total of 547 single-family homes, private amenities, outdoor recreational facilities, and thoughtfully designed floor plans. Seventeen model homes are currently under construction and a handful of prospective buyers have already signed pre-sale contracts to purchase their dream home. Pricing for homes within the age-restricted neighborhood start in the low $200s and go up into the low $400s.
RiverLights will be a 2,700-home master-planned community sprawled across 1,400 acres along the Cape Fear River waterfront. The master developer, Newland Communities, purchased the property ten years ago and sought to build a large-scale community with mixed-use buildings, premier homes, world-class amenities, a 38-acre freshwater lake, walking and biking trails, parks, and a marina with 112 boat slips.
The master-planned community will be built in ten phases with the first phase focusing on the amenities that will be available for all residents to enjoy. According to Vice President for Newland Communities Jim Henry, the development is built on the theme of “connectivity,” that aims to bring together people, nature, and the community, incorporating all of these aspects into RiverLights’ design.
Active adults will also love the community’s prime location in Coastal North Carolina where they can find plenty of attractions, healthcare facilities, and entertainment nearby. With easy access to the Cape Fear River, beaches, and downtown, Del Webb Wilmington will be a top-notch retirement destination for Baby Boomers in North Carolina.
