Knightdale Station gets railroad-inspired street names

— With the beginning of construction about a month away, names for the streets in the future Knightdale Station subdivision were approved by Town Council last week.

The nine names, which are for the first two phases of residential construction, are named after train routes, stations or trains: Carolinian, Heartland Flyer, Midlander and Sunland drives; Admiral and Noon Flyer ways; Liberty Express Place, Banner Blue Court and Silverliner Avenue.

Knightdale Station will be built over several years and offer 835 residential units when complete. All homes in the division will be at least 1,600 square feet.

About 75 percent of the homes will be 1,850 square feet and 25 percent of the homes will be more than 2,000 square feet.

Developer Karl Blackley said in September the company is aiming to make the homes about $200,000, but that price may change when the company chooses a builder.

The private school system, Thales Academy, will open an elementary school within the subdivision and Preston Dvelopment has reserved more land for the school to grow in the future.

Preston has also saved room for a YMCA, complete with an aquatics center. The pool’s planning and construction is moving along and the pool should be open by Memorial Day.
