I read somewhere that River Lights development is being built on swamp land. I'd like for someone that knows anything about this to clarify . We are getting ideas of where we want to look in that area, just not had the free time to do so yet. We do like the areas off Carolina Beach road that are close to the beach . Please feel free to interject ideas and clarification about River Lights.

Read it where? Was it a credible source? Define "swamp land". Its a riverfront development in coastal NC...obviously parts of its are wet/low. I'm sure the houses aren't built in those areas. You can look on here and check the flood zone situation:

The article was from a newspaper but now for the life of me I can't remember which one now.

Its 1,400 acres along the Cape Fear River. I'm sure some of the land is wetlands. You're way overthinking it.

I'm sure about the wetlands being there just wondered about the "swamp" that was referred to in the article.
Just curious .

Most of the land at Riverlights was fairly high ground with pine trees...its basically large sand deposits, as much of Wilmington is. Anyone who drove the old road (before they relocated it) knows it was fairly hilly.

The swamp land being marketed to be built on is south of Riverlights (south of Sanders Rd) on the river side where there is a sign for like 70 lots...I would be much more concerned with building in that development.

Default Riverlights

Riverlights is a nice new development that is along the river and some of that land might have been wet, but they moved the highway 1/2 mile away from the river for the development. It is an excellent development and after a long delay from the great recession, they really kicked it in gear in the past couple years. A number of quality builders to choose from. 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.
