The full-service design-and-build firm prides themselves on providing top-notch features for its custom homeowners. A few of their standard features include:


  • Customized RiverLights home plans designed with their client in mind

In addition to bringing its homebuyers a familiarity with the Wilmington area and years of experience, Plantation believes in the importance of communication with its customers and feels that the development process should be an exciting one — not a stressful one. In the home-buying process, a homeowner wants to feel as if his or her opinion matters — and with Plantation, it absolutely does. The company enables its customers to communicate how they see their dream custom home — seeing the homeowner’s vision come to life is what Plantation strives to accomplish.

At RiverLights, Plantation will be spearheading the residential components of Marina Village, the new community’s central hub of activity that will feature beverage and dining opportunities, a range of local businesses, the RiverLights Wilmington information center and expansive views of the Cape Fear River. Included at Marina Village will be 40 units of new townhouse construction, all designed and built by Plantation. Upon completion, the team will then begin custom home construction on legacy lots throughout the community.

The topography and historical beauty that RiverLights encompasses perfectly align with Plantation’s architectural philosophy and vision, which place priority on things like protecting the area’s natural resources while catering to the community’s input. The future residents of RiverLights will appreciate the opportunity to work with esteemed home builders like Plantation and will certainly love calling RiverLights home.
