4410 River Rd., Wilmington, North Carolina
On the Southern North Carolina Coast, Riverlights is a New Waterfront Community with Shops, Restaurants, a Boardwalk, a Freshwater Lake and a 55+ Single Family Home Neighborhood
Riverlights is a new mixed-use, master-planned community along the Cape Fear River in Wilmington, North Carolina. It broke ground in late-2016 and is named after the lighthouses that once stood in this area. At completion, the community will have nearly 2,300 homes. Some of these properties will be in a 55+ neighborhood built by Del Webb.
The community has 1,400 acres sprikled with live oaks, red cedars, sawgrasses, tidal marshes and sand dunes. Nearly half of these acres will remain as open space, giving Riverlights a soothing quality. Homes, including condominiums, town homes, single family homes and apartments, will spread across the other 700 acres. Seven developers in addition to Del Webb are constructing residences, each creating a separate neighborhood. Many of the homes are single story, and cottage and Cape Cod are a couple of the architectual styles. All 10 Del Webb floor plans are single story single family homes with two to four bedrooms, two to four baths, a pitched roof, a prominent two-car garage facing the street and a small front porch.
Home prices in the general community begin in the high-$200,000s. Del Webb homes begin in the low-$200,000s. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are bound to change.
Marina Village is the heart of Riverlights and will have shops, eateries, a shaded riverfront boardwalk, a crab dock, an event lawn, offices, a 112 slip marina and a dock master. Red Oak Commons is a park with plans to host concerts, a farmers' market and more. Four other parks are also on the drawing board. A 38-acre freshwater lake will provide opprotunities for fishing and canoeing. Del Webb plans its own amenity center with a large, resort-style swimming pool, tennis courts, shuffle board courts and more.
