Middleburg Communities to Develop Hamlet Barclay West: A New Paradigm of Living in Wilmington

Middleburg Communities, a noted name within the multifamily real estate sector, has recently finalized the acquisition of a significant land parcel in Wilmington, North Carolina. This approximately 30-acre plot, positioned at the juncture of S 17th Street and Independence Boulevard, will soon become the site of the build-to-rent community named Hamlet Barclay West. The 280-unit neighborhood is poised to usher in an idyllic living experience in a city known for its burgeoning growth and vibrant lifestyle hubs.

Wilmington, a coastal city that has seen an explosive increase in population and development, has an appetite for stellar build-to-rent offerings like Hamlet Barclay West. Alexi Papapieris, Middleburg’s Senior Vice President of Development for the Carolinas Region, has affirmed this perspective with enthusiasm. He stated, “Wilmington’s explosive growth over the years has resulted in strong demand for high-quality, build-to-rent communities like Hamlet Barclay West. We are excited to break ground on this project and deliver a product that meets the needs of the market and offers a lifestyle that is coveted by individuals and families alike.”

Location is paramount in real estate, and Hamlet Barclay West doesn’t fall short. It promises convenience and accessibility, situated a mere stone’s throw from critical Wilmington destinations such as the vibrant Historic Downtown, picturesque beaches, reputable educational institutions, and key employers. The community’s design will cherish neighborhood aesthetics, featuring lush, tree-lined thoroughfares and green spaces, granting residents the essence of single-family living minus the stress of down payments and property upkeep.

Bearing in mind the essentials of modern living, Hamlet Barclay West will boast a range of one to three-bedroom floor plans, each endowed with upscale interiors: quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and vinyl plank flooring, affirming Middleburg’s commitment to quality and comfort. Anticipated amenities are all-encompassing, including a resort-like clubhouse with a pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, eco-friendly electric vehicle charging stations, a pet-friendly park, and even a pet spa, addressing the lifestyle demands of individuals today.

Middleburg’s initiative resonates deeply with the needs and aspirations of rapid-developing Sunbelt cities. Austin Knapp, Partner and Senior Managing Director of Development, provided his insights, “Wilmington is a city that we project will continue to experience robust population inflows and investment activity over the long-term as it offers the charm, quality of life, and employment drivers that make it an ideal place to live, work, and play.”

As Middleburg Communities embarks on this new venture, it is evident that their deep-rooted expertise and strategic foresight stand to enrich the multifamily landscape. Hamlet Barclay West is earmarked to be more than just a living space—it is poised to become a community that anchors itself in the quality of life it offers and becomes seamlessly woven into the fabric of Wilmington.
