When you build a home with Empire, you’re choosing an industry leader with over 27 years of experience building across North America. With over 28,000 homes to their name, Empire understands the importance of creating unique environments for homeowners to live well and comfortably. That attention to detail coupled with a reputation for outstanding customer service has helped the homebuilder become one of North America’s largest private builders, slowly growing from humble beginnings into two countries, six regions, and 90 communities.
Their introduction into the Charlotte market comes after the builder announced they had acquired Shea Homes North Carolina Division earlier this year. “Our goal has always been to bring a level of sophistication and quality with every home that we build,” says Mike Shea, Executive Vice President. “With Empire, we will be able to maintain this level of quality and commitment while leveraging deep local relationships that will position us for future growth opportunities in the North Carolina market.”
Headquartered out of Toronto, Canada, Empire’s entry into Charlotte marks their third expansion into the United States, having established in town and suburban communities across Atlanta, Georgia; and Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, Texas. “We’re proud to enter the Charlotte market and are committed to enriching our homeowners’ way of life through purposeful home designs and a personalized homebuying experience,” says Sue MacKay, Senior Vice President of Corporate Marketing. “We realize that the role homebuyers play in creating happy, healthy communities is a big one, and we thrive on being able to make a difference creating some of the best communities to live in.”
Empire’s communities in Charlotte range from townhomes to single-family homes. Lucent, Landings at NoDa, and West End Towns make up their townhome communities in Charlotte, with homes starting from the mid $300’s and ranging from 1,344 sq. ft. to 2,351 sq. ft. Single-family communities include Belle Gove in Marvin; McLean in Belmont; Oldenburg in Waxhaw; Summerwood in Mint Hill; and Enclave at Massey in Fort Mill, SC. Detached homes range from 1,987 sq. ft. to 6,054 sq. ft. and start from the mid $300’s up to the mid $700’s.
Empire also offers a Design + Build program for custom homes with a wide range of services to guide homeowners through the process of building custom, from selecting the perfect floor plan to choosing the finishes that’ll beautifully pull the home together at their impressive 3,900 sq. ft. design studio. The program is available in Charlotte and its surrounding neighborhoods, including Weddington, Fort Mill, and Lake Norman.
