New Things are Coming to New Bern


Construction began last month on the latest retail development coming to New Bern. The New Bern Marketplace will be a 34-acre, 325,000 square foot shopping center located on NC Highway 17at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and South Glenburnie Road. This marketplace will serve Craven County residents as well as the surrounding areas including homes in Morehead City NC residents of Carteret County.

The New Bern Marketplace is being developed by Columbia Development Group, LLC, the premier retail and mixed-use development firm in the Southeast. According to the website, the New Bern Marketplace will feature a variety of tenants including sporting goods store, Academy Sports + Outdoors, discount store Five Below, supermarket chain Harris Teeter, arts and crafts store Hobby Lobby, shoe store Rack Room Shoes, department store Ross, beauty store Ulta Beauty, and marine supply store West Marine. Harris Teeter will relocate from its current location at 2109 Glenburnie Road and include a gas station and a pharmacy with a drive-through. Construction will be an ongoing process with Five Below, Ross, Ulta and West Marine expected to be completed by the end of this year and Academy Sports + Outdoors, Hobby Lobby, and Rack Room Shoes in June 2018 and Harris Teeter by October 2018.

This development is great news for New Bern and the state of North Carolina. As retail development continues in the area so does growth in the area and job creation. The New Bern Marketplace isn’t the only development coming soon to New Bern. We will soon begin building in Bayberry Park and Carolina Colours communities in New Bern. We are also proudly building in the homes in Morehead City NC community of Mariner’s Pointe. Mariner’s Point is less than an hour’s drive from the town of New Bern. To learn more about building a home in these communities please contact Sales Specialist Brittany Wilder at 252-671-4114 or
