Development teams are debuting their first age-restricted, "pocket neighborhood" in Clayton.

The first model homes for the proposed 300-unit Walk at East Village community have opened at the intersection of U.S. 70 Business and N.C. 42 next to the new apartments at Arbors at East Village, and the community will be hosting an open house event April 22.

Walk at East Village will have a 12,000-square-foot clubhouse with the traditional neighborhood amenities, including a pool, fitness center and coffee shop, along with walking paths throughout the entire community. The project is about one mile east of Clayton’s downtown district. It is designated as an age-restricted community, which means that at least one member of the homebuying household must be 55 years or older.

The Walk at East Village is being developed in partnership with Taft Development Group.
