Habitat Wake strives to build in all parts of Wake County. To date, we have built more than 600 homes in 11 of the 12 Wake County municipalities.
*Homes are currently under construction in neighborhoods or towns with an asterisk.
In 2009, Habitat Wake began building in Abbington Ridge, located off Rock Quarry Road, near I-40. This neighborhood features townhomes and single-family homes, and is conveniently located nearby schools, employment and shopping opportunities.
From 2009 to 2015, Habitat Wake built 34 single-family homes in this Raleigh subdivision. Homes in this subdivision were all one-story and built on concrete slabs. With the addition of 34 homes, Augusta Crossing is a community of 83 standalone homes.
Habitat Wake broke ground in the established Callan Park neighborhood in 2007. Several Western Wake churches and businesses came together to build five town-homes. Each home is connected with a storage shed.
Habitat Wake's presence in the established Consolidated Pines neighborhood began in spring 2012 with Home Builders Blitz. In one week, local builders built four homes. In 2016, more than 100 AmeriCorps from across the east coast traveled to Fuquay-Varina to help build four more homes as part of Build-A-Thon. Consolidated Pines is currently a focus area for our neighborhood revitalization program.
Hit by the recession, only 25 homes were built prior to the economic downturn. Habitat Wake acquired the remaining 55 lots, and began construction in 2015. Located in southeast Raleigh, homeowners have quick access to groceries and transit lines. In 2016, Habitat Wake broke ground on the second phase of construction in this up-and-coming community.
Construction began in this Raleigh neighborhood during the 2006 Home Builders Blitz. Professional builders came together to build 20 homes in one week. Volunteers joined us on the build site in fall 2006 to complete the remaining 16 homes. In 2017, Habitat Wake returned to Dowling Ridge to build more single-family homes. Dowling Ridge is home to Tom Gipson Drive, in honor of the founder of Home Builders Blitz.
Over the past 32 years, we've built 40 homes downtown. In 2017, Habitat Wake was awarded four lots from the City of Raleigh to build in the Idlewild Area. Additionally, Habitat Wake plans to build homes as part of the East College Park and Martin/Haywood redevelopment plans. Homes built in downtown Raleigh will feature cement fiber siding, brick veneer on all four sides of the home, nine-foot ceilings, and will be built on a crawlspace.
Conveniently located at Old Apex Road and Falcone Parkway near the heart of downtown Cary, Falcone Pointe quickly became a desirable location for building. In fall 2008, Habitat Wake broke ground on seven energy-efficient, minimally attached single-family homes. Falcone Pointe features a modest lawn area for green space, with sidewalks and benches.
From 2004 to 2007, Habitat Wake constructed 18 homes on Idlewood Village Drive. Idlewood was an existing development with predominantly single-family residential properties.
Jubilee Village is Habitat Wake's oldest neighborhood. Led by Sid Gulledge Sr. of Edenton Street Methodist United Church, volunteers built the first home in Jubilee Village in 1987. This home was the first of 25 subsequent homes, which were built over a decade and a half. Jubilee Village remains at the center of Habitat Wake's neighborhood revitalization work in Wake Forest.
Home to two outstanding partnerships, Lake Wheeler Road has become a close-knit community. The first three homes in this development were built as part of the Building Independence project, in partnership with Lutheran Services Carolina and the Serving Cup. Shortly after the completion of Building Independence, the NC State community came together to break ground on Build-A-Block. With the help of 5,000 volunteers investing more than 20,000 hours over the course of nine months, 11 families purchased energy-efficient, attached townhomes.
Long Acres is an established area in downtown Raleigh, and became the first coalition as part of our neighborhood revitalization program. Habitat Wake built eight single-family homes from spring 2011 to fall 2012.
Located near Anderson Pointe Park, the Neuse Ridge community features a beautiful greenway and a mix of one- and two-story homes. In 2017, 14 professional builders came together to build five homes in one week as part of Home Builders Blitz. These homes are five of the 21 Habitat Wake homes in this neighborhood.
The development of Rosalynn Place began as part of the second Home Builders Blitz. Local builders partnered to build 24 homes in one week in December 2003. In October 2005, we celebrated the completion of the neighborhoods final eight homes, bringing the total number of Habitat Wake homes to 42. Rosalynn Place is located off of Poole Road and is home to Jimmy Carter Way.
In spring 2013, Habitat Wake began construction on the White Oak Villas development. Located along the south side of Lynch Street at its intersection with Second Street in Apex, this neighborhood features commercial and residential properties. To date, we have built 16 single-family homes in this neighborhood.
