An Arizona-based developer is looking to bring hundreds of new homes to the buzzing area around Knightdale.

This year, Suncrest Real Estate and Land filed its latest plans for a residential development called Brio. The Phoenix-based company wants to build up to 778 homes.

The project is situated off Old Crews Road north of Knightdale on a disjointed site totaling 268 acres across two unconnected assemblages. The land is owned by a collection of LLCs and individual landowners.

Filings with the Town of Knightdale call for a mix of single-family detached homes, townhomes and age-restricted homes. Amenities appear to include ample open space with parks, gathering areas, clubhouses and sports courts. Pricing and timeline information wasn’t included in the filings available online. Suncrest did not return requests for comment.

The project has been in the works for a while, with the developer holding its pre-submittal meeting in October 2020 followed by subsequent meetings and other plans filed since then.

McAdams handled planning and engineering services.

Suncrest has developments across the country, including one in Wake Forest called Del Webb at Traditions, which has 450 homesites.

The Knightdale development adds to the rapid growth in Knightdale and eastern Wake County.

Last year, developer Signature Property Group filed plans for the Elevate Riverview, calling for 364 apartments and 30 townhomes to serve as the residential portion of a multi-phase development in Knightdale.

On the commercial side of things, Wake Stone Property Company and Williams Realty & Building Company started work on the last of six buildings at Hinton Oaks Industrial Park last fall. Plans call for 250,000 square feet of space set to deliver in the fourth quarter of 2022.
