Another neighborhood planned for latest New Bern development

Tucked away behind Carolina Colours, off of Old Airport Road, lies one of New Bern’s newest large-scale residential developments.

With more than 500 total acres and the potential for 1,000 single-family lots, the Bluewater Rise community features four subdivisions and has plans for another, all conveniently positioned between downtown New Bern and MCAS Cherry Point.

Monitor Cape is set to be the latest neighborhood in the A. Sydes Construction project and will join the existing, coastal-themed sites of Fenwick Isle, South Wind, Bendigo Bay and Hutton Pointe.

“Compared to other neighborhoods in the Bluewater Rise community, Monitor Cape is considered a high density, single-family residential development,” said John Thomas, owner of Thomas Engineering.

Monitor Cape spans a total of 46.01-acres and will harbor 120 lots when development is complete. The targeted lot size is 8,740 square feet, however some are slightly larger, Thomas said.
