Wendell Falls is the only master-planned community in the Triangle built entirely with environmentally friendly homes that meet ecoSelect standards for energy and water efficiency. The award-winning, 1,100-acre community combines the quaintness of the old tobacco town it once was with the quality of life in a bigger city. Wendell Falls is entitled for up to 4,000 homes and features a town center, 10+ miles of trails, parks, playgrounds and a festival lawn that serves as the epicenter of community festivities and activities. McKim & Creed provided full civil and site engineering, master planning and surveying services for Wendell Falls.
When a contractor charged with clearing a site within the community uncovered two large knobs of solid granite rock, McKim & Creed developed a unique grading plan that saved the client $1.2 million and salvaged 30 lots.
