West New Bern experienced great progress in 2023, with the completion of our first-single family neighborhood and the opening of a second one, plus the announcement of Thales Academy and additional commercial opportunities.

Spanning 540 acres in its first phase, West New Bern has been strategically designed to offer a variety of home styles in a wide price range to meet the needs of families of all ages and sizes.

Situated at the front of the community off West New Bern Parkway is Comet West New Bern, presenting 224 apartment homes with luxurious finishes and innovative floorplans.
