Designed to foster a coastal, wellness-centered environment, RiverLights™ offers the energy of a city amid miles of tranquil beauty. Set along the Cape Fear River, it’s a new kind of community that celebrates family, honors nature and breathes new life into Southern heritage. 

There are plenty of opportunities to walk, run or ride bikes along miles of trails, kayak in the 38-acre freshwater lake, or roam free in any one of the community’s many parks. Whether dropping a fishing line off the dock, gathering with neighbors for an oyster roast, or watching the sunset on the waterfront, exploration happens here daily. Ideally located less than five miles from historic downtown Wilmington, RiverLights is close to well-regarded medical facilities, cultural events, restaurants, and nightlife.

Whether starting a family, a first-time homebuyer, or an active adult seeking a 55+ community, RiverLights has home options suited to any stage of life. A variety of single-family homes and luxury townhomes are available from a carefully selected team of eight builders.

The RiverLights community information center is open seven days a week and offers 12+ beautifully decorated model homes allowing buyers to get a feel for the lifestyle that awaits in RiverLights.
