The Forks at Barclay is a brand new home community located near the intersection of 17th Street and Independence Boulevard, adjacent to the Cameron Art Museum and the Cross City Trail, in Wilmington. Construction by Trusst Builder Group began in 2014. Prices start at about $285,000 for town homes and about $360,000 for single family homes. Five different floor plans are available at The Forks, including the “Plum Island 2” model, winner of the Parade of Homes Gold Award in 2015. All floor plans range from about 1600 to 2300 square feet, and feature traditional architecture that incorporates southern style and classic touches. Homes will also come with many upgrade options, such as granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, energy efficient heating and air-conditioning and sound systems just to name a few.
When complete, the community will consist of 72 detached, single family homes and 52 town homes, situated on 46 acres. The major draw to this community is the prime location, just minutes away from shopping and restaurants, downtown, medical facilities and area beaches, but residents also enjoy the unique landscape of The Forks. It offers a lot of green, open space with native plants and trees. Since it is also very close to Cross City Trail, the neighborhood will be very pedestrian-friendly with multiple sidewalks, footbridges and walkways.
