McKee Homes grew by leaps and bounds in 2013 and almost doubled the number of homes built and sold from 2012. In order to meet the increased production of new homes and communities many new faces were added to the McKee Homes team including new construction project managers, operations manager, and office staff.
McKee Homes began building in many new communities near Fort Bragg in 2013 including Legacy Lakes in Aberdeen with its Nicklaus Design golf course, Liberty Hill and River Glen in Fayetteville, as well as the new Valley Streams community in Anderson Creek Club. Another golf community, Mid South Club in Southern Pines, is slated for early 2014.
McKee Homes expanded outside the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area to Garner with Summerwind Plantations and will soon open two new communities near Raleigh and Knightdale. In addition we are expanding into Wilmington with Hanover Reserve and Willows. Most of our new communities have homes starting in the high $100’s to low $200s with beautiful 1,700 sq. ft. to 3,500 sq. ft. floor plans.
McKee Homes moved its offices and staff to downtown Fayetteville at 101 Hay Street at the end of 2013. The first floor showcases the newly remodeled design center and is available by appointment for new home selections. The second floor has newly remodeled offices for the McKee Homes staff. The new Design Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be held on February 13, 2014 at 4:00 PM.
McKee Homes’ community involvement grew in 2013 with the third annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s being held at Liberty Hill in Fayetteville on September 7, 2013. This event raised over $45,000 for Alzheimer’s care and research. In addition, McKee Homes sponsored and participated in other community events such as the NC State Military Appreciation Baseball Game and the Fayetteville Veteran’s Day Parade.
McKee Homes has continued to grow and build a dynamic company through the past few years and is looking forward to more growth, prosperity, and community involvement in the coming years.
The new McKee Homes Design Center is located at 101 Hay Street next to the Market House. Originally the site of the State House, the Market House was built in 1832. Architecturally unique in North Carolina, the Market House is one of the few structures in North America to use the town hall scheme found in England. Today a National Landmark, the Market House stands as a unique focal point to Fayetteville’s major downtown streets.
