“We are delighted that Del Webb Carolina Orchards has received this hometown recognition from the Charlotte homebuilders,” said Steve Francis, Charlotte division president for PulteGroup. “Since opening in 2016, Del Webb Carolina Orchards has attracted homebuyers from both the surrounding area and across the country, as baby boomers start the next exciting chapter of their lives in an active adult community that is designed specifically for them.”

“This is a community that offers the perfect combination of an active lifestyle and quality-crafted home designs in a beautiful setting,” added Francis. “As we continue to welcome new neighbors to Carolina Orchards, our upcoming celebration will serve as a wonderful introduction for anyone who wants to get a first-hand look at what life can be like in a Del Webb active adult community.”
