Kernersville Multi-Use Development Will Have 500 Apartments

Welden Village, a 385-acre, mixed-used development proposed in Kernersville that is a “traditional” neighborhood development (TND), will include 500 apartments, 306 of which are being built by Parr Construction later this year. Here’s a description of the project from an article in the Triad Business Journal:

Instead of a development based on “pods” of similar homes, Arden plans to create one integrated walkable community with well-connected streets where residents can make short walks to parks, open spaces, civic amenities and new retail spaces. Traditional neighborhood development, sometimes referred to as neotraditional design or New Urbanism, harkens back to how neighborhoods were developed prior to World War II – before automobiles changed the dynamics…

The plans for Welden include three single-family areas with about 1,400 homes as well as about 200 townhomes and 500 apartment units. Rhodes said about 30 acres would be used for a commercial village…

Next up is Welden Park Apartments, a 306-unit complex adjacent to the village center, built by Triad-based Parr Construction. Kernersville approved a site plan in March, and construction is scheduled to begin late this summer, according to Rhodes.
