I’m moving. That’s right! I just got the news (while aboard the ship) that Asteria, a storyliving by Disney Community is coming to North Carolina! It’s even closer to my work!
No lie. I received 5 messages in less than 24 hours while onboard the ship about this new community coming to North Carolina. Disney Parks Blog posted all the info. Clearly, this has my name written all over it. My good friends and I who go to Disney together are already planning on being neighbours.
The community is inspired by the spirit of discovery and is being designed to encourage exploration, spark life-long learning and create new connections for future residents. I want to be on the HOA!
You may recall that there is a community like this being built in California, as well. The Storyliving by Disney team has been working with Disney Imagineers and DMB Development to develop a unique vision for this community. The inspiration? Walt’s love of learning and curiosity!
Walt once said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
Influenced by Walt’s perspective and the nearby universities in North Carolina’s renowned Research Triangle, the Asteria community is envisioned as a campus of discovery – where future residents can learn and grow, bringing a touch of Disney magic into their everyday lives in a way that only Storyliving by Disney communities can.
I cannot even wait to see all the new things in store for the all-new Asteria community! Here are three things I can’t wait to explore:
Adventure is Out There: Discovering the Beauty of North Carolina
The Asteria community will bring Storyliving by Disney to an entirely new setting on the East Coast – North Carolina! The community will come to life on approximately 1,500 acres in picturesque Chatham County, just outside the state’s vibrant capital of Raleigh.
North Carolina’s rich landscape and history are at the heart of Walt Disney Imagineering’s initial planning work alongside DMB Development. Disney Imagineers are pulling inspiration from the area to imagine spaces where nature is always on display, blurring the lines of indoor and outdoor living. To encourage exploration, the community will feature acres of neighborhood parks and miles of beautiful walking and biking trails where residents can connect with the fauna and flora of the outdoors.
In fact, the name Asteria pays homage to the native North Carolina aster flower. Can I admit I don’t know anything about this flower? It the namesake of the goddess Asteria. In Greek mythology, Asteria’s tears of stardust fell to the Earth and sprouted the first aster flowers. Disney Imagineers chose the community’s name to honor North Carolina’s natural beauty from the Earth to the sky. I promise you, it is beautiful.
Life-Long Learning: Resident Amenities Designed to Spark Curiosity
Homeowners will become part of a club with amenities and programming designed to encourage learning and connectivity – both with their fellow neighbors and the outdoors.
The club is going to include all kinds of spaces including a recreation center, pools, gardens, a restaurant, outdoor spaces, and much more!
Beyond beautiful gathering spaces, the club will feature enrichment programming only Disney can deliver. Some of the experiences the team is dreaming up include family fun days with Disney-themed games and activities, storytelling dinners inspired by classic Disney tales and classes with Disney artists.
Starting a New Story: The Asteria Community Lifestyle
You know that the Asteria community will offer future residents the customer service that Disney fans have come to expect. This is thanks in part to contributions from the creativity of Disney Imagineers. A range of home styles will line quaint streets leading to a mix of community amenities specifically designed to showcase the area’s surrounding natural beauty. There are plans for more than 4,000 residential units, including single-family and multi-family homes, with some home sites specifically designated for 55+ adults.
Asteria is situated near Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham in the town of Pittsboro. You guys… this is so close to my work! The Asteria community will be part of the larger, award-winning Chatham Park master-planned community.
The Asteria community is in the beginning stages of planning with Walt Disney Imagineering and DMB Development. Homes in the community will be built by select homebuilders with sales anticipated to begin by 2027. Additional details including an option to join the community’s email list can be found by visiting storylivingbydisney.com/asteria.
Who’s moving with me? Maybe just coming to visit? All I can say is this fashionista’s life just changed with the announcement of this community!
