Up-and-Coming Neighborhoods in Wilmington

Sponsored Content provided by Neal Johnson - Licensed Real Estate Broker , Network Real Estate

If you're currently looking around the Wilmington, North Carolina area for a place to live, you definitely don't want to miss the boat on these up-and-coming neighborhoods.

Most of these communities aren't entirely new, but they're growing quickly in popularity because they're either adding awesome new amenities or are improving/renovating existing ones.

So, check them out below, and don't hesitate to contact one of our friendly agents if any of the neighborhoods spark your interest.


Brooklyn Arts District


If you're an artistic or a creative type, the Brooklyn Arts district community is unparalleled. The area is a thriving creative center for local businesses, largely because of Acme Art Studios.

The business was created 27 years ago with the dream of being a central supportive hub for local artists. Based on the current culture of the area, that goal was clearly achieved!


Sunset Park


How would you like to wake up to gorgeous views of the Cape Fear River or Greenfield Lake? Well, when you move to Sunset Park, you can! Not to mention, this incredibly affordable neighborhood has been beautifully renovated over the last five to 10 years.


RiverLights


Imagine never having to leave your neighborhood if you didn't want to. Well, if you move to RiverLights, that dream can become your reality!

That's because of Marina Village, which is RiverLights' community square. It offers enough shops, restaurants and entertainment options to keep you and your family busy for years.


Monkey Junction


If there's any location around Wilmington that has really "grown up" in the past few years, it's Monkey Junction.

The area, which only used to have a few gas stations and a Piggly Wiggly, now offers tons of entertainment options. Additionally, this suburban hub has extremely affordable housing options.


The Cargo District


And finally, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention Wilmington's very own Cargo District. Imagine if you never had to drive to the office again. Well, if you buy in the Cargo District, that's completely possible. But despite what you may be thinking, I'm not talking about simply working from home.

Instead, I'm talking about two completely separate buildings that are stacked on top of - or placed beside - one another. How is this possible? Well, it's because all the spaces in the Cargo District are made from shipping containers. Not only is this a cool trend - it's incredibly good for the environment!

Looking for more information on any of these up and coming neighborhoods? One of our friendly agents would love to help you with that today!
