Stocks in this article: PHM

DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An official VIP ceremony was recently held to break ground for the City of Durham's first Del Webb community, Carolina Arbors by Del Webb.  Targeted toward residents age 55 and older, Carolina Arbors sprawls across 460 acres and consists of 1,275 single-family ranch homes with a 30,000-square-foot amenity center.

The groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by local politicians, community leaders and representatives of Del Webb, was designed to familiarize the local community with the unique features and amenities of Carolina Arbors, as well as unveil renderings of the community and amenity center.  Construction is expected to begin immediately, with the first models projected for completion by summer 2013.  Residents will be able to start moving in as early as this summer.

"This groundbreaking ceremony marks an exciting step as we move closer to making this unique community a reality," said Lawrence Lane, the division president for Del Webb in the Raleigh/Durham market.  " Del Webb has been building active adult communities for more than 50 years, but this is the first time we've introduced our legendary Del Webb lifestyle concept in the city of Durham.  We expect Carolina Arbors to attract people who want to enjoy an active retirement without having to move away from family and the familiarity of the community where they've spent much of their lives."

Carolina Arbors by Del Webb Carolina Arbors is in close proximity to the vibrant Brier Creek area which is best known as the premier outdoor shopping mall in the Durham market with more than two million square feet of retail space.  Additionally, there are more than 40 restaurants within a two-mile radius of Carolina Arbors.
