Carolina Lots and Land, SP, a North Carolina licensed real estate broker (“CL&L”), has been retained by Mill Creek Development Company, LLC (“MCDC” or “Owners”) as the exclusive Sales Representative and Advisor for the Property or portions of the Property described within, encompassing the final undeveloped Residential Phases of “Mill Creek”, an acclaimed Master-Planned Golf and Outdoor Lifestyle Community, as well as prime Commercial Positions within the boundaries of Mebane, NC’s most popular and established Residential and Golfing destination.
Following a recently completed, comprehensive analysis of the entire 650 (+/-) acre Mill Creek Property by CL&L and our Professional Partner Team, in which we addressed and assessed the numerous Residential and Commercial Opportunities within the Community, CL&L and the Owners have developed our Vision and Mission for the Development of the prime 230 (+/-) combined acres addressed within this Presentation and Offering. Our preliminary Planning and Vision are referred to within this Presentation as “Mill Creek 2020”, which represents the year of commencement for our new Development initiative – as well as the year during which we will proudly celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Mill Creek’s establishment in 1995.
Over the past 25 years, our Mill Creek Community and Golf Club has matured and flourished, weathering storms and events that have challenged us – and is today a vibrant, pristine haven of contentment for our beloved Residents. Our acclaimed, multiple award-winning Golf Course has never been more close to perfection than today’s striking, picturesque and challenging presentation. Today, Mill Creek includes six fully absorbed and distinctive Neighborhoods, populated with nearly 400 fine homes ranging from traditional, affordable Single-Family dwellings to grand golf-front Estate residences. Our happy, content Residents are our best ambassadors, ready to share their personal expressions of love for their Community.
Possibly the most impressive and remarkable story behind the Mill Creek legacy is a virtually hidden, yet vitally critical fact – the current Owners were also Founding Partners, and today are the sole ownership Entity. Despite the often turbulent financial dynamics faced by many other similar Golf Clubs and the Communities that surround them, Mill Creek is totally unencumbered and debt-free. The fiscal and managerial expertise of the Owners has further polished the sterling reputation of the Showplace that that they began, and added to the sense of security that is enjoyed by Mill Creek Residents as well as the dedicated and loyal Staff Members who proudly serve their clientele.
Our Mill Creek 2020 Vision also addresses recommended Residential Housing Guidelines, Architectural Themes, Home Types and Styles, Sizes, and anticipated Pricing Levels – as well as our forecast of the full spectrum of potential Home Buyers for each of the Proposed New Phases. With our Preliminary Site Mapping reflecting a total of approximately 680 new Homesites, The Mill Creek 2020 initiative has been carefully crafted to be as inclusive as possible; designed to provide Buyers of widely varied budgets, needs, and desires the opportunity to enjoy the lifestyle and sense of belonging that our fine Community has to offer.
Mill Creek 2020 includes a blueprint for our strategically located Commercial tract, located at the Main Entrance to the Community, with frontage along N.C. Highway 119, directly facing the termination and intersection of the highly anticipated NCDOT “N.C. 119 Relocation”, locally referred to as the “Mebane 119 Bypass”, which has been in planning since 1990 and is expected to open to traffic in late 2020 or early 2021.
The anticipated impact of the new Bypass will reverberate throughout the Northern quadrant of Mebane and its ETJ for generations to come. Although the Mill Creek Community is but two miles North of Downtown Mebane, the Bypass originates with a new Interchange on I-85/40 in Alamance County. It terminates at the existing N.C. Hwy. 119 across from the Mill Creek Community Entrance, and is a five mile, divided and limited access Highway spur that will become the newest “Engine” for Mebane’s continued rapid growth, especially for Residential and Commercial development in the “Mill Creek Corridor”, or the area we internally refer to as North of Mebane’s Stagecoach Road, offering a speedy commute to areas soon to be ripe for new Housing, Commercial, and Industrial development.
Our Commercial Vision includes Retail, Dining, and Hospitality within the designated 15+ acre Site adjacent to Mill Creek’s Main Entry Location, as well as several additional opportunities for new privately owned and managed Amenities and Attractions adjacent to the current Mill Creek Golf Clubhouse facilities. Our Vision addresses several value-added and high demand new additions to the “Social Hub” of Mill Creek, including the repositioning of our current spacious Sales Center as a combination Women-Centric Day Spa and Athletic Center, a new Event and Dining Venue directly adjacent to the Clubhouse, Condominiums and other potential housing for “Stay & Play” Golfing Packages, Youth Golf School Campers, area Visitors, and those persons seeking overnight stays as part of Weddings, Reunions, and other Events onsite.
We feel strongly that with the opening of the new Bypass, the demand for a Commercial Development as we have envisioned will grow exponentially, and that the Bypass terminus at “Mill Creek Crossroads” will be a huge factor in driving new home sales in the new Phases of our Community. We also feel that the addition of Event, Dining, and Spa facilities will further propel Mill Creek to “Resort” status, becoming a headline attraction for the entire area.
Carolina Lots and Land and the Owners are currently entertaining and encouraging requests from Highly Qualified Principals, Developers and Home Builders for additional information, Site Tours, Offers of Purchase for Potential Partners who may wish to play vital roles in our Mill Creek 2020 initiative, and becoming invested in teaming with CL&L and the Owners in fulfilling the full potential and blueprint for this rare and exclusive development Opportunity in the highly desirable Town of Mebane.
Riding a high tide of popularity, Mebane was just recently ranked as the “8th Fastest Growing” of 132 candidates among NC Cities with populations of over 5,000 residents in the annual HomeSnacks.net “Fastest Growing Cities in North Carolina for 2019”, based on data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, according to data for the last five years. The “engines” that have powered our fantastic desirability, prosperity, and popularity are many, making Mebane the envy of hundreds of Towns and Cities all across America.
