They are adding a lot of amenities and creating some social events as well. Worth Checking out if you are moving to the area. There is also another nice riverfront development north of town called River Bluffs that is very nice with nice amenities and they are saving a lot more trees than RiverLights that is nice.
I've read about River Bluffs on this site some positives and negatives . They are fairly new also right ? What surrounds River Bluffs ? To the best of my memory seems like the negatives
were about what is beside or around River Bluffs that isn't too appealing .

Its pretty far from amenities like shopping, grocery stores, medical, etc. and it has a lot of heavy industry to the immediate north and west across the river.

I've read that also. The price seems high if not desirable around it

I believe that Riverlights claims ”water access” but can someone please clarify what that access is exactly? Just a day dock? Is there a boat ramp? Is the water deep enough for a typical boat or just kayaks (what I’ve heard)? Thanks!

See the write-up on the Newland website...

https://www.newlandco.com/newland-co...s/riverlights/

"Located in Wilmington, North Carolina, along a 3-mile stretch of Cape Fear River frontage, this 1,400-acre river-oriented community is planned for approximately 2,700 homes, including a mix of townhomes, diverse single-family home options, an age-qualified neighborhood, a 30-acre lake with lakeside amenity center, a mixed use commercial area, and an activated Marina Village featuring a 112-slip marina and dockmaster, live-work opportunities, shops, restaurants, a boardwalk, a crab dock, event lawn, and miles of trails to connect from the river into the community’s multiple neighborhoods"

I think you can launch kayaks now, but eventually there will be a marina. Likely they need to build out more before they start construction of the marina to make sure there is enough demand.

A site within the development for an Elementary or K-8 school is being negotiated right now with New Hanover County.

Any updates to this post after Florence such as flooding? Thinking about relocating there.

I'd like to know the same thing but considering the flooding in downtown Wilmington, I'd be worried.

We visited pre-Flo and the whole development sits right on the river. My guess, and it is a guess, is that it wasn’t pretty.

The Del Webb Riverlights Website says:

"While Hurricane Florence devastated many families, homes and businesses across North and South Carolina, the community in RiverLights has been fortunate to fare the storm. We are thankful to report that there has been no flooding in our community and no major damage to any homes or businesses."
