Final Builder Team Announced for New Wendell Falls Community

Newland Communities, the nation’s largest private developer, unveiled its team of builders for Wendell Falls, the master-planned community slated to open in spring of 2015. The award-winning list includes Lennar Homes, Homes by Dickerson, Garman Homes, Wynn Homes, Dan Ryan Builders, M/I Homes and a new brand, Fresh Paint by Garman Homes.

Wendell Falls is owned in a joint venture between NORTH AMERICA SEKISUI HOUSE, LLC (NASH), the U.S. business unit and full subsidiary of SEKISUI HOUSE, Ltd., Japan’s largest homebuilder and leading diversified developer, and AMERICAN NEWLAND COMMUNITIES, LLC, whose development business, Newland Communities, is the master developer of the community. Wendell Falls is one of more than 30 assets the NASH-Newland partnership owns or manages together in 11 states across the United States. 


“We’re thrilled to partner with this team of premiere craftsmen,” said Laurie Ford, vice president of operations, Newland Communities. “Given that the our community is a short 15-minute commute from the Raleigh city center, and with these builders’ broad experience, Wendell Falls will undoubtedly become one of the Triangle’s leading places to live.”


The team of local, regional and national builders will provide a variety of green-certified homes. Floor plans range from 1,400 – 3,200+ square feet at price points from the $170,000s to the $400,000s designed to appeal to buyers in all stages of life.  


Wendell Falls will feature several new home styles unique to the community, and a new brand known as Fresh Paint by Garman Homes will also debut for the first time in the Triangle. The Fresh Paint line combines the affordability of an efficiently built home with the style and signature flair of Garman Homes by including a variety of interior design packages for the buyer.


“With the diversity and innovation offered by our builder team, Wendell Falls is poised and prepared for a season of forward momentum and growth,” said Keith Hurand, senior vice president and division manager for the Mid-Atlantic region, Newland Communities.


“This multi-faceted team has the expertise to craft a distinctive community that will attract strong interest while honoring the local traditions of the Wendell culture.”


In addition to an array of industry awards, the Wendell Falls builder team leads sales in the Triangle market, claiming spots on Metrostudy’s 3Q14 top 25 builder list based on annual starts in the Triangle as well as on the Triangle Business Journal’s 2014 list of top 25 builders in the Triangle by volume.  


Wendell Falls’ initial offering contains approximately 355 home sites on a property that is entitled for up to 4,000 residential units, all of which will be constructed solely by the designated builder team. Construction is slated to begin in January 2015. Presales will commence in early first quarter 2015 with homes available for occupancy in spring 2015.
