CHAPEL HILL, N.C., July 11, 2013

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Briar Chapel, a new home
community in Chapel Hill, NC, has announced a new neighborhood will launch
this fall featuring three new builders, Drees Homes, Garman Builders, and
Beazer Homes, all of which are brand new to the community. They will join
David Weekley Homes to bring fresh energy and exciting new home models to the
latest neighborhood of Briar Chapel, located in the northern area of the
community.

In response to strong interest from home buyers, the new builders in this
neighborhood will offer homes with front-load garages and more spacious plans,
making them perfect for growing families and buyers with active outdoor
hobbies. David Weekley will also be adding new and exciting plans to their
portfolio for this newest neighborhood.

"The homes we've designed for Briar Chapel reflect the individuality of Garman
and our buyers," said Alaina Money, Director of Sales and Marketing at Garman
Homes, of their all-new Mix-Tape Collection. "From their innovative features
right down to their names, which come from our favorite song lyrics, these
plans exude personality."

Additionally, this new neighborhood will introduce a new park, giving
residents even more opportunities to enjoy Briar Chapel's famous outdoor
lifestyle. The park features a unique climbing structure from Nags Head
Hammocks, as well as preserved natural elements that underscore Briar Chapel's
commitment to the land's natural topography and history.

"The new plans we're bringing were designed specifically for Briar Chapel,"
said Dave Hausfeld, Division President of Drees Homes. "The collection
embraces a shift from traditional homes by reallocating space from underused
formal rooms to more useable areas, both indoors and out. From the openness of
the 'living triangle,' to the clutter-busting family foyer 'drop zone,' the
Clarity Collection offers an alternative to compartmentalized living, without
sacrificing quality or style. In addition, these homes feature DreeSmart
Conservation Innovations, making them easy on the wallet and on the
environment."

"Briar Chapel is thrilled to have such exciting builders and energy coming to
the community," said Keith Hurand, Senior Vice President and Division Manager
at Newland Communities. "We're confident these new designs will resonate with
potential residents, and will help Briar Chapel continue to grow and thrive."
