We’ve had a banner year so far and our second residential phase, situated among the scenic Riverwalk trail and River District, is nearing completion!

This emerging neighborhood includes 69 single family homes and 26 townhomes built around an active, outdoor lifestyle. Featuring Raised River Cottage, Upcountry Mill House, River Craftsman and Piedmont Homestead architecture, our award-winning local builders Saussy Burbank, Evans Coghill and Chesmar Homes are excited to share updates on the growth of our dynamic community!

RIVR-Saussy

We are pleased to report that we have 41 families closed and enjoying their new Saussy Burbank homes in Riverwalk with 7 additional families scheduled to move in prior to the holidays. We have sold half of our 12 Twin Townhomes as well as 5 beautiful homes in our exclusive cottage section overlooking a well landscaped green space.

Our current “move-in ready” homes include our gorgeous model plan, the Savannah, our master down cottage, the Dalton, and the porch over porch Augusta as well as two Twin Townhomes.

We will be starting construction on a Cooper, a Linville, a Santee and a couple of Portland cottages over the next few weeks. We eagerly anticipate completing Section 3 of Phase 1 to prepare for the release of 33 new homesites in Phase 2 this Spring. With 22 new Saussy Burbank homes sold thus far in 2014, we’re well on our way!!

Evans Coghill

RIVR-Evans

Evans Coghill has seen a big surge in buyers with a special interest in ranch and master-down homes as well as low-maintenance townhomes with an attached garage or master-down option.

With no two floor plans  the same, our buyers are enjoying the custom homebuilding process that allows them to move walls to truly personalize their homes. Our “Heating & Cooling Monthly Bill Guarantee” through Environments for Living gives homeowners security in their monthly budget and our fresh-air exchanger with MERV 10 filter is ideal for those with allergies.

With 6 new homeowners over the past 2 months and 6 more reservations for our new phase we are running out of home sites! Buyers enjoyed our interactive scavenger hunt during this September’s first annual Tawba Fest. Even with more than 3,000 event attendees, our spa shower was still spacious enough for several intrepid hunters and their dog!

Three Businesses Break Ground

Posted on: No Comments

We’re excited to announce the groundbreaking of three new business at Riverwalk Carolinas. The recent uptick in development kicks off with the decision by accountant Bernie Ackerman to build a $3.5 million building in the emerging River District area. Ackerman broke ground for the BNA building at Riverwalk with about 150 local residents watching and participating.

In addition to Ackerman’s five-floor building, a second 36,000 sf building will be the future home of Baxter’s Grapevine Wine Shop & Wine Bar, a local running group and a spa.

The Charlotte Business Journal also covered the recent purchase of a third building by two York County developers, the nearby pump house.

RIVR-PumpHouse

Elliott Close of the former Springs Industries family and developer Colby Mosier plan to open the restaurant as soon as later summer 2015, according to one source with knowledge of the project.

David Williams, lead developer for Riverwalk owner the Assured Group of Companies, says the restaurant would be a definite plus for the young $600 million development on the former Celanese industrial site.

Williams says plans call for using some of the unique features of the pump house in the design of the building. The structure is cantilevered over the Catawba River at the U.S. Highway 21 bridge. Other details of the project, including the name for the eatery, weren’t disclosed. Neither Close nor Mosier could be reached immediately for comment.

“It’s got the potential of being the best restaurant in York County,” Williams says. “We’ve always envisioned that type of use for the river pump house.”
