Commercial Space coming to Wendell Falls!

Commercial Space coming to Wendell Falls!

Wendell Falls clears way for 2M square feet of commercial

Ben Graham, The Triangle Business Journal
January 23, 2018

The Wendell Falls master-planned community, just outside of its namesake town in eastern Wake County, is still just a shadow of what it could be in the future.

Open fields and mounds of dirt still make up much of the 1,100-acre property. Neat rows of single-family homes have cropped up, but only a little more than 400 of the potential 4,000 have been built thus far.

All that could change soon.

Construction is underway on the commercial phase of the Wendell Falls community, and plans are in the works for even larger development in the near future. Crews have begun work on a Cruizers convenience store at the development, being built by real estate developer Newland Communities. In March, a new childcare center will go vertical. But the bigger news is what lies just beyond the horizon. The Newland team behind the master-planned community is laying the groundwork for a grocery store, a medical facility and restaurant and retail space. All told, the commercial component of the project will total 2 million square feet.

There is even space for a corporate headquarters office complex, something that could help draw companies to the other side of Wake County. “This east side has been overlooked,” says Dan Klausner, Newland’s director of commercial real estate.

An 11-acre parcel has been prepped for a 100,000-square-foot medical facility, and one of the pads is in the final stages of negotiations with a tenant. Another 50-acre parcel is being graded to make way for retail space, restaurants and a new, higher-end grocery store. Work on the commercial side of the development comes at the same time that the developers are making headway on the residential component. More than 380 homes have been sold to-date, while another 680 lots are ready for construction. The work represents a significant about-face for the project, which was in limbo for years until Newland scooped it up in 2013 for $34 million. Development of the community had been suspended in 2008, after the original developer, Burroughs & Chapin, defaulted on a Wells Fargo loan. The bank foreclosed on the land two years later. When its complete, Wendell Falls could double or even triple the population of the town of Wendell, which had 6,745 residents in 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

And it could get even bigger. Those behind the development have talked about luring a larger company to relocate to Wendell Falls. The corporate headquarters site is 50 acres and could accommodate up to 6 million square feet. That would require getting additional approval from the town, but the potential is there, Klausner says.
Newland has offices in cities across the U.S. and also is responsible for building Briar Chapel in Chapel Hill.

Let’s Talk Design: An Interview with Turner Underhill
by Cali Buhrman, Marketing Coordinator

Have you ever walked into a model or staged home and thought to yourself, “Oh my, these designs are amazing!”

Everything flows together perfectly, the décor complements the home features, and you are instantly in love.

Working around gorgeous homes at Wendell Falls, I know the feeling well—which is why I was so excited to
down with Turner Underhill, the designer behind Homes By Dickerson’s custom plans in our community.
Read our interview below to hear what Turner had to say about inspiration, her favorite home so far,
and what sets Homes By Dickerson apart from any other homebuilder.

CB: There are so many great homebuilders in the Triangle. What sets Homes By Dickerson apart?

TU: Homes by Dickerson is not only a custom green home builder, but we also pride ourselves on the fact that
clients can walk through our spec houses and know that what they see is a “standard” option and would be
included in the base price of the home.  We have wonderful options in our standard levels and as a designer,
we work hard keep our programs up to date and current (like tile, flooring, and backsplash programs).
Since we are a custom builder, we can do just about anything for our clients but we have many
homebuyers who are pleased and happy with the standard options.

CB: What’s the first thing you think about when designing a home? Do you usually know
immediately the character of the home and what you want it to be, or does it come together
later in the project? 

TU: With each home I work on I come up with a theme.  I am given an elevation and a floor plan and from
there I create the bigger picture.  Whether it is a coastal farmhouse or masculine craftsman house, each home
has a main idea and I build on it from there.  I keep the theme in mind when picking exterior colors, interior
floor stains, backsplash tile, cabinet colors, etc.  A coastal farmhouse would be light and airy while a more
masculine house might have some stained elements and a darker overall color scheme.

CB: Okay I have to ask, do you have a favorite home you have designed at Wendell Falls so far?

TU: My favorite home in Wendell Falls so far is the Concord plan we built for Parade of Homes. It ended up
winning Gold in 2017 and our team loved the finished product! The theme for this house was actually a coastal
farmhouse and when you walk through the front door, you can see that come through and carry throughout the home.

Thanks Turner! For more information on Homes By Dickerson and their plan offerings, click here.
