What is the progress on the Riverside development in the Wrightboro area?

The Riverside residential development at the intersection of Castle Hayne Road and North Kerr Avenue in the Wrightsboro area is planned for 308 units – 236 of them single-family homes, said Sam Burgess, subdivision review planner in the New Hanover County Planning and Zoning Division.

There will be 72 multi-family units – three buildings of 24 units each – behind the Food Lion shopping center. All Riverside residents will be able to walk or bike to the shopping center, he said.

Secof Construction, in Carolina Beach, is developing the project as Riverpoint Group LLC, Burgess said.

They “are continuing to move forward to put in their infrastructure,” he said.

“The land use has changed quite a bit and they are making preparations for installing sewer lines, and have rough-cut roads,” Burgess added.

The development required a transportation impact analysis, Burgess said, and the developers have been required to put in signals at the intersection. They are working in conjunction with Hanover Lakes, a residential development near the 2000 block of Castle Hayne Road, he said.

    What about plans to widen Castle Hayne road to 4 lane? This will drastically impact traffic flow on Castle Hayne road! Who will pay for that impact and mitigate the time delays in getting downtown and elsewhere?

    Infrastructure improvements for the planned Riverside development in the Wrightsboro area “have almost come to a standstill because of the economy,” said Sam Burgess, principal development planner with the New Hanover County Planning and Zoning Division. “We have not received any updated site plans.”
    But the site plans for the development, by Secof Construction in Carolina Beach, remain valid because the N.C. General Assembly has extended the validity period for current preliminary plans to Dec. 31, 2011, Burgess said.
    Explaining the normal process, Burgess said, “If the economy was doing fine, typically our preliminary site plan approvals are valid for two years, and the developer could come in and ask for a one-year extension. But all that is moot now.”
