New Community Preview: RiverLights

If you’re familiar with Del Webb active adult communities for people 55 years of age or older, you’ll be happy to know one is coming to the western shores of the Cape Fear River below the Port of Wilmington. We’re pretty excited that RiverLights will be open for business in early December.

RiverLights by Newland Communities

This is a master planned community developed by Newland Communities, with over 2,500 homes to be built over the next 5-10 years. Each new home features an innovative design, high-end touches and flexible layouts to make sure your new house feels like home. Located on approximately 1,400 acres just 8 miles south of downtown Wilmington, you will be conveniently located with access to everything from outdoor adventures to world-class golf, the arts and plenty of restaurant and shopping venues.


The developer, Newland Communities, has already completely revamped a 3-mile section of River Road, which leads towards Carolina and Kure Beach. They are in the process of building a labyrinth of roads, sidewalks and lakes as well as carving out new neighborhoods that will offer various architectural styles and tiered pricing. With pricing starting in the mid $200s and reaching to the $500s, RiverLights is sure to have opportunities for just about everyone with their heart set on a new home.

RiverLights will be made up of 7 different neighborhoods, one of those being a new Del Webb neighborhood that will open their 8 fully furnished model homes in December 2016. The Del Webb neighborhood will have its own amenities in addition to the large array of RiverLights amenities. Those include over 7 miles of walking trails, parks, marina, commercial centers, fitness center, pools, tennis courts and more.


This non-gated community will have onsite builder representatives throughout their many neighborhoods. If you’d like a tour of the community, just stop by any homes that have an onsite builder representative present.

If you would like to receive information on RiverLights, our Carolina Plantations team has already attended two openings and has started showing the community to prospective buyers, so we are up to date on this new community.
