With more homes than RiverLights and Landfall, Surf City development underway
The development is approved to contain 3,200 residential units on 195-acres of purchased land on a 240-acre rezoned tract
SURF CITY—With one-fifth of the amount of land of RiverLights, a master community in Surf City could pack in 3,200 single-family homes.
Waterside, to be located on a 240-acre tract, will contain several neighborhoods and serve as a community within a community.
In 2015, Surf City Town Council approved the rezoning of the 240-acre tract on Belt Road from residential to a Planned Unit Development. It was pitched as a “community within itself” that would contain over 3,200 residential units and four acres of commercial property.
Waterside is approved for at least 400 more units than RiverLights and 1,500 more units than Landfall on significantly less land.
With a blend of single and multi-family units, the development would contain 13.5 units per acre. Compared to RiverLights and Landfall, which span at least 1,160 and 1,960 more acres than Waterside, the Surf City community will be densely packed.
