This is an article I found online about the community I am buying in.
Background: This article was written a few years ago. Back then the development was started, but then abandoned after less than 10 houses were built b/c the developer went bankrupt. It sat abandoned for 2 years. It is now re-open and Wells Fargo is developing the property.
The price points and names of the sections of changed (prices dropped drastically, they now start in the 140's). The elementary school is already built and open.
I wonder how much of this the new developer is planning to keep too. We were told, as far as our Rep knew, that were going to try to keep the original plans for the development as much as possible.
Here's the article:
I have to tell you about a wonderful new community being planned in Concord, NC. I visited today and found LOTS of information about The Mills at Rocky River. This community is being developed by Grace Development , Crosswinds Development, and Ryan Homes is the primary builder. Ryan Homes currently has three different price points open in four different phases of the neighborhood. The first price point is The Manor. These homes are located on roughly .2 acre. They start in the $220,000s. The next price point if The Estates. These homes are on roughly .25 acre and start in the $260,000s. The final price point for Ryan is The Preserve. Third of an acre lots, with a couple of lots up to half acre. These homes start in the $360,000s. Ryan plans to build both ranch and two story plans. They also have many basement lots available due to the lovely rolling topography of the land.
In addition to Ryan, the development companies are talking with several custom builders to build in two of the center sections of the neighborhood. Again, these will be larger lots and the pricing looks to start in the $500-$600,000s.
There is a future section for villas to be built. This will be for the active person who isn't quite ready for a town home but is ready to give someone else the yard work! There is a space for this project but not a date just yet. As well, town homes will wrap around a retail section. This retail was being likened to Phillip's Place by the model agent this afternoon. For those of you from out of town, Phillip's Place is quite nice. Upscale shopping, Restoration Hardware, Dean & Deluca, etc.
The map of the neighborhood also shows a space for a grocery store and a proposed elementary school. Does that mean the developer is offering the land to the county? I don't know but a GREAT location for an elementary school!! After all, CC Griffin Middle School is RIGHT next door.
The two entrances are going to have four lane boulevards to the beginning of the residences. There are several multi-level water features to be built and an awesome looking clubhouse with state of the art fitness center, meeting rooms, and kitchen. Amenities to include a resort style - zero entry pool, kiddie pool, whirl pool, and splash pad, and playground. There will be both walking trails and horse trails (several equine facilities close by!) throughout the neighborhood. And the vision of the neighborhood developer; this inspired the development of the neighborhood. A working millhouse with a working water wheel at the main entrance to the community.
The neighborhood has, thus far, sold five homes. This is the ground floor!!!
