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.
