The number of new homes for sale in Wilmington NC has increased significantly in recent years thanks to the introduction of several new communities in and around the region. One of the most popular has been TidalWalk.
If you’re in the market and researching available homes in the Wilmington area, TidalWalk is certainly one you might want to consider. This neighborhood review may help you determine whether or not it’s a contender.
TidalWalk sits on 106 acres, where construction began in 2007. It’s planned to feature 198 home sites and as of April 2015, the community is about 70% completed. The community’s original developers were Tim Wilson of Latheron & Gunn, Inc. and James Martin of Martin Development Group, both of Wilmington.
