RiverLights Announces Line-up Of Homebuilders

By Cece Nunn, posted Feb 3, 2016
RiverLights, the master planned community on River Road expected to add thousands of residents to Wilmington in the next several years, announced Wednesday the group of builders that will be creating many of those homes.

The seven local and regional builders are:
  • Plantation Building Corp
  • 70 West Builders
  • H&H Homes
  • The Cottages
  • American Homesmith
  • Trusst Builder Group
  • Charter Building Group

“We employed a thorough selection process to find the highest-caliber builders to partner with us for RiverLights, and we’re thrilled to announce this team,” said Livian Jones, vice president of operations for Newland Communities. “Many were founded in or have ties to Wilmington, and our goal is to work with as many local companies as possible while mirroring the feel of Wilmington. Each builder’s home designs will be approved soon, with many of them brand new and debuting at RiverLights, and construction on their RiverLights model homes should begin in just a couple months.”
According to the announcement, the builder team is creating high-performance, third-party certified homes that fit the design aesthetic set by RiverLights, under development on 1,400 acres. Home styles include townhomes, single and multifamily, as well as condominiums, with prices starting in the $200s.

“Each talented builder group brings their own unique touches to their customers’ projects, and many will work with their clients to add custom touches to their new RiverLights homes,” the news release said.

An announcement regarding builders for the age-qualified section of RiverLights is expected in the coming weeks, according to the release.
In addition to about 2,500 homes at full build-out, RiverLights will also include public parks, a 38-acre freshwater lake, commercial space and other amenities.
The RiverLights community is owned by a business entity of North America Sekisui House LLC (NASH). RiverLights is one of 30 assets the NASH-Newland partnership owns or manages together in 14 states across the U.S.
