News From the Home Front: Here’s the Latest RiverLights Update

As temperatures are steadily rising in our coastal North Carolina community, RiverLights is thriving and the future is looking bright. The community is preparing for another wave of exciting changes, some of which are already underway! Ahead, get more details on the latest RiverLights news and updates.

More homebuilders join RiverLights

RiverLights has added several new homebuilders with a variety of new home designs to its already impressive lineup. As more and more people start to call this community “home,” RiverLights has honed in even more on the wants and needs of residents. Now, with even more builders, RiverLights is able to accommodate families in all walks of life and create home designs that foster different lifestyles.

Newest to the RiverLights homebuilders list are Laurel Homes and Legacy Homes by Bill Clark, which brings the total to 10 homebuilders that buyers can choose from.

Laurel Homes

  • Laurel Homes is now offering new segments of townhomes ranging from $250,000 to $320,000.
  • These townhomes will feature spacious layouts and customizable amenities such as a one-car garage.
  • Three different floor plans will be offered to accommodate a wide range of needs, including an option for one-story living, private balconies, dual master bedrooms, and more!

Legacy by Bill Clark

  • Well-known and trusted in the Carolinas, this new builder is coming into RiverLights with a new product offering that is ideal for empty nesters.
  • The builder’s two unique home plans range in price from $369,000 to $389,000.
  • The homes will feature 3-bedroom, 2-bath designs with elegant porches that will be perfect for soaking in that Carolina sunshine. 

Plus, two new model homes from Trusst Builder Group & Charter Building Group are now open in RiverLights and ready for you to explore! Stop by the Marina Village Information Center for your community map, then tour the homes — open seven days a week!

Del Webb Amenity Center

Del Webb Wilmington at RiverLights is focused on offering an enriched lifestyle for residents aged 55 or better. At the all-new amenity center, residents will have the opportunity to connect with neighbors, relax and unwind, and spend time together outdoors.

The Amenity Center features 15,000 square feet of shared community space, indoor and outdoor resort-style pools, tennis and pickleball courts, a high-tech fitness center, and rooms for social clubs and activities. Plus, there are appliances for cooking inside and entertaining by the grill outdoors. And, there will be a full-time lifestyle coordinator who will provide residents with a wide range of activities, clubs, entertainment, and more. From book clubs to pottery classes to reading ’round the pool, the opportunities are endless.

Making the most of Marina Village

There are a million reasons to love Marina Village, the community’s thriving central hub. Here, you can shop al local boutique, grab a bite to eat, and get your daily fill of nature — all in one afternoon! Along the edge of Marina Village is the Boardwalk. Situated on the Cape Fear River, this is arguably the best place to watch the sunset in the Wilmington area! Plus, the nearby Day Dock is now open and ready to welcome boaters, kayakers, paddleboarders, and more.

Indeed, Marina Village is the heart of RiverLights and encompasses the balanced and wellness-centric lifestyle that the community boasts. In the past 18 months, RiverLights has opened two restaurants: Smoke on the Water, a traditional American and seafood grill overlooking the water; and Magnolia Social Café, a delightful breakfast and lunch restaurant full of sweet and savory treats. And now, Marina Village is going to drum up even more excitement in the summer and fall of 2018 with even more developments in the mixed-use building space. New additions will include more local restaurants and small local businesses — and that will continue to keep excellent dining and shopping close to home. In fact, RiverLights will be breaking ground on the second Marina Village mixed-use building in May — stay tuned!

Here’s to home sales!

The word is out, and it’s spreading like wildfire: RiverLights is an awesome place to live and grow. More and more families are choosing RiverLights to plant their roots, and with good reason. In total, RiverLights has now had 260 home sales!

Want to get in on the action? There are currently 450 lots still available, including those within Del Webb Wilmington at RiverLights.

Awesome entertainment throughout 2018

Get ready to mark your calendars, because RiverLights has a full 2018 lineup of nearly 100 events! Since the community's grand opening in December 2016, RiverLights has put a large focus on being a hub for the Wilmington community. It will continue to serve as such throughout the rest of the year, and will include a monthly farmers market at Marina Village Marketplace, live concerts under the oak trees, classic car shows, a “Discovery Series” to help you get to know the Wilmington area and its rich history, and so much more.
