Newland Communities’ Briar Chapel, located in northeastern Chatham County just five miles from downtown Chapel Hill along U.S. 15-501, has been designed to inhabit the land without inhibiting nature.

Upon completion, Briar Chapel will encompass 1,589 mixed-use acres including 2,400 single-family and multi-family homes, approximately 470,000 square feet of retail and office spaces and more than 900 acres of green space, including parks and approximately 24 miles of trails for residents to appreciate preserved nature and wildlife.

Briar Chapel is the largest community in the Triangle to require each builder to comply with stringent green building certifications, such as the Green Building Initiative developed by Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties Home Builders Association (DOCHBA) and Energy Star. Each Newland-owned building at Briar Chapel is by the Green Building Initiative and Energy Star, and the Residents Club has a SILVER green certification from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s (LEED) rigorous third-party green certification system.
