Wendell Falls to Open the First 55+ Active Adult Rental Community in Wendell

Wendell, N.C. – September 7, 2022 – Wendell Falls, one of the largest master-planned communities in the Triangle, closed on its first age-eligible rental community plan, Arden at Wendell Falls, that will offer 140 open-concept units, as well as exclusive onsite amenities.

Wendell, along with the entire Triangle region, is experiencing tremendous growth, and there is an upward trend of people looking to right-size for new, maintenance-free homes. Until now, there were no 55 and older apartment home communities in Wendell. This addition to Wendell Falls will support the demand for those 55+ seeking community without a “buy in” fee and at an attainable monthly rate.

Arden at Wendell Falls is being designed to inspire delight and create connection while fostering community, all with the foundation of inclusion and utilization.

“With a focus on universal design concepts, both the community spaces and unit layouts are designed for comfort and accessibility,” said Kevin Woodley, managing partner, Arden.

This will be achieved through features such as wide door frames, accessible bar and furniture heights and a zero-step experience.

Additional details in the units include modern kitchens with stainless steel appliances, tiled backsplashes, granite countertops, walk-in showers and wired for high-speed internet.

The fresh interiors will include classic white cabinets with stylish hardware, modern stainless-steel appliances and warm brown, wood-plank-inspired flooring in the kitchen, bath and common rooms.

Arden at Wendell Falls offers a purpose-led and an independent active lifestyle without paying for unnecessary services. Residents will have access to onsite community amenities, including a creative arts and business center, fitness center and wellness room, a library, various gathering rooms and ample outdoor spaces.

“The optimization and programming of outdoor space will be an integral element of Arden at Wendell Falls, making this the perfect addition to the community” said Tanya Matzen, vice president, operations, Brookfield Properties. “Arden’s plans to leverage existing outdoor spaces into terraces, covered lounges, a fire pit, swimming pool, pickleball court and an al-fresco dining area with a grilling station reflects the lifestyle that draws people and families of all ages to Wendell Falls.”

The 55+ rental community is expected to break ground in April 2023. Visit for more information or contact to learn more about Arden at Wendell Falls.
