Find harmony again.

It’s an easy, respectful way of life. Our commitment to sustainability touches every detail, like our NAHB-certified green homes, historic parks and our fresh, re-energizing atmosphere. We've preserved nearly 900 acres of open space, slopes and stream beds, and thousands of trees. The result is a more natural habitat for wildlife - and a healthier lifestyle for the people who call it home.

Thoughtful planning for a long-lasting community.

Every detail matters. When planning Briar Chapel, we let the land do the talking. We crafted a community meant to last around these core principles of sustainability.

Green principles.

  • Start with the land.

    We made an effort to preserve the most species-rich areas. Wetlands to preserve water quality. Parks, greenways and forested buffers to conserve plants.

  • Keeping the green green.

    Greenways, forests, parks – we’re dedicated to generously preserving natural areas. Bennett Mountain and the area tout greenways connecting preserved forested areas.
  • More trees, please.

    We've preserved almost 900 acres of trees and planted more wherever sites allow.
  • Re-use of materials.

    Boulders removed during the grading process were re-used in the site's landscaping, retaining walls, erosion control and roadbeds.
  • Walking is good.

    The Briar Chapel community is a walkable community, with over 20 miles of trails connecting our neighborhoods, the Briar Club, local parks, ball fields and schools.

  • The Briar Club.

    To inspire our builders, resident and greater community, the Briar Club is LEED® Silver Certified.

Going green saves green.

By living in a sustainable community, you’re not only preserving the environment but also preserving pennies – as much as $607 each year in energy bills. Built according to the rigorous NGBS construction standards, Briar Chapel homes are 25 percent more energy efficient than the average North Carolina house.
