Client News

Builders of new homes in Forest Ridge, Crescent Communities’ Hillsborough development, won awards in the Annual Parade of Homes. The community is known for its natural beauty, small-town charm and easy access to the Triangle.

“Forest Ridge offers residents a prime location in a spectacular natural setting,” said Keith Glenn, senior vice president of Crescent’s residential group. “We’re proud to work with our terrific team of builders to make these gorgeous homes available to the community.”

Custom home builder Wardson Construction won a gold award in category eight, featuring homes priced $669,000-735,000. Saussy Burbank won a silver award in category five, which includes homes priced $434,000-474,000. Both builders are part of the first phase of Forest Ridge, a 116-acre, master-planned development.

The Parade of Homes is an annual open-house tour of new homes throughout Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties. Held in the fall, this free event allows the public to tour beautiful homes and learn more about the latest products and technology available in new home construction. In addition to the tour of homes, awards are given for the most outstanding homes. This year, the tour included more than 250 new homes.

Ideally situated in North Carolina’s Triangle region, Forest Ridge is positioned to become certified as North Carolina’s first Four-Star National Green Building Standard™ land development; four-star certification is the highest level awarded. The community is also expected to become the largest certified National Green Building Standard™ land development in the state and one of the largest in the nation. Homes, featuring traditional architecture and modern conveniences, are designed to achieve Energy Star and National Home Builder Association Bronze-Star certifications.
