Disney Plans To Build Residential Community Near Raleigh, NC

Rollercoaster and houses

Disney has announced the development of a new residential community named Asteria, as part of their innovative 'Storyliving by Disney' concept. This ambitious project is set to unfold in the planned unit development (PUD) of Chatham Park, approximately 30 minutes from downtown Raleigh, Durham and Research Triangle Park. Encompassing over 1,500 acres the community is slated for around 4,000 homes.

Asteria Homes & Amenities

Named after the native North Carolina flower the Aster, the community will have an emphasis on nature and bringing indoor and outdoor living spaces together. Asteria will have a mixture of single family and multi family homes with some homes designated for 55 plus active adults. The amenities currently listed include a clubhouse, wellness center, community garden and miles of trails. Gathering spots, green spaces and fire pits will be located throughout the community. The Asteria community will be managed by Disney cast members who will guide prospective homeowners through the buying and selection process. There will be separate club memberships which will offer a mix of Disney themed experiences and activities along with excursions  and learning programs.

Storyliving by Disney Cotino

The first Storyliving by Disney is called Cotino and is located in Rancho Mirage, California. The home designs reflect the surrounding desert and agricultural landscape with some mid century modern features as well as more contemporary designs. The community is centered by a man made lagoon which has beaches and swimming area and spots where residents can launch their kayaks and paddle boards. The clubhouse is designed to look like the house in the movie Incredibles 2!  It is likely that the homes in Asteria will reflect the nature and location in the Greater Raleigh area of North Carolina home to Research Triangle Park and respected universities and is being envision as a campus of discovery.


Chatham Park

Chatham Park is a pioneering development in urban planning, designed to redefine the concept of community living. This expansive project is more than just a collection of neighborhoods; it's a meticulously crafted ecosystem where residential areas, retail spaces, office buildings, and healthcare facilities coexist seamlessly. The ethos of Chatham Park is centered around the idea of community, not commuting. By integrating diverse elements of daily life into a single, cohesive environment, residents are afforded the luxury of having their work, leisure, and healthcare needs within a convenient proximity. This approach not only fosters a strong sense of community but also significantly reduces the need for daily commuting, thereby enhancing the quality of life for its inhabitants. With its diverse neighborhoods, each offering unique living experiences, and its blend of commercial and recreational spaces, Chatham Park is setting a new standard for modern, sustainable living.

Growing Area of NC

Chatham County is poised for some significant growth as are some of the surrounding counties with large scale manufacturing plants being built in the auto making, EV batteries and semiconductors fields which are expected to employ thousands of workers. These are all within thirty miles of Chatham Park along with the sustained growth of the Triangle area itself, one of the most popular places in the country for attracting new residents.
