Huntington, a New Urbanism housing development in the Denbigh section of Newport News, is moving forward, though a bit behind schedule. Huntington has an Independence Boulevard entrance off the 900 block of Denbigh Boulevard in Newport News.
Newport News-based Westmoreland Corp. started the first phase of the development, in a wooded area north of Denbigh Boulevard and just east of Colony Pines, which the company also developed. The plan eventually is to connect Independence with Richneck Road and to connect Huntington to the adjacent Colony Pines neighborhood, but development will take several years.
Currently, HH Hunt and QHOC-Quality Homes of Currituck, N.C. and Wayne Harbin Builder are building homes and townhomes in the Huntington community. Kirbor and Westmoreland Homes will soon start construction.
HHHunt’s cottage homes range from 1,800 to more than 2,000 square feet with prices starting in the upper $200,000 and low $300,000 range. The 2,073-square-foot, two-story model home features an open layout with three bedrooms, a flex space loft area upstairs, a porch downstairs and balcony deck upstairs.
The cottage series was developed for buyers who want a modern layout and design but can’t afford larger homes.
“The floor plans and kitchens and all the spaces are designed for today’s lifestyles.
HHHunt also is building two types of three-story townhomes in Huntington with nearly 1,900 and 2,000 square feet starting in the mid-$200,000 range.
Since 1985, Wayne Harbin Builder has built homes in a variety of price ranges and communities. Harbin Builder is a Viridiant-certified builder who incorporates environmental considerations into every stage of the home building process. They were also honored as “The 2015 Southern Living Builder Member of the Year,” by Southern Living Custom Builder Program. Harbin is currently offering three different detached home plans in Huntington.
They include the Newport, Warwick and Tidewater models all with detached garages. Sizes range from 2000-28000+ square feet and prices start in the $380’s. Plans are available upon request.

A mixture of single-family homes, condos and apartments are planned, in the New Urbanism-style similar to Port Warwick.
Plans for the development include a 5.5 mile walking trail, a park with green spaces, ponds, loft apartments over retail shops, and houses mixed in with apartments, with a similar old-style feel of Ghent in Norfolk and Hilton Village in Newport News.
A total of 2,500 units are planned including apartments, condos and single-family homes, though that won’t likely happen for another 10 years.
A main four-lane throughway will cut across the development and connect two major City roadways, Denbigh Boulevard and Ft. Eustis Boulevard. Connector roads feature roundabouts to provide focal points and traffic calming measures. Four regional ponds will provide stormwater runoff areas, and numerous small parks serve as focal points throughout the development.

Huntington Pointe’s New-Urbanism concept of design, which shows influences of design standards that were prominent until the rise of the automobile in the mid-20th century, is so new, that the City of Newport News is using the “neo-traditional” zoning ordinance for only the second time since it was created in the early 2000s. Once completed, Huntington Pointe will be the largest new neighborhood built in the City since the 1980s.
The first phase, which will include the land between Denbigh Boulevard and the pond, is about 85 acres. In future phases, the development will extend to the north, toward Richneck Road.
The company, led by Lewis McMurran, has developed other projects from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg and has a division in Raleigh, N.C.
