Pulte Homes appears to have found a location for its next retirement community in the Triangle.
The homebuilder has filed a rezoning request with the Durham City-County Planning Department for 368 acres off Leesville Road. The property is just east of U.S. 70 near Brier Creek.
The development plan calls for the project to be an active-adult community that would be restricted to people 55 and older.
Lawrence Lane, Pulte's division president in the Triangle, said the company is still working with planning officials on the feasiblity of the site and has not determined how many homes might be included in the project.
Pulte opened a similar community, called Carolina Preserve at Amberly, in Cary in 2006 under the company's Del Webb brand.
The 1,300-lot development still has more than 400 home sites remaining. Lane said Pulte likely wouldn’t open a second active-adult community until Carolina Preserve was sold out.
