River Lights Project Overview

River Lights Development in Wilmington, NC partnered with the York Bridge Concepts™ team to activate the river’s edge, cross winding waters, and expand the community’s engagement with the property as a whole. The YBC Decero™ Design Team known for it’s attention to detail, planned every inch of this large project to provide an enhanced experience for residents and visitors alike. The River Lights Development features over 1500 feet of turnkey crossings & structures including a boardwalk, pier, crab dock, & pedestrian bridge.

The 120’ pedestrian bridge features three 40’ spans crossing a winding waterway to connect walking paths. Three sets of glulam stringers join together creating a beautiful rolled arch over the water enhanced by a rhythmic combination of coated wire rope, x-accents, and custom post caps, washed in a dual-tone neutral color palette inspired by the community context.
