Recent developments

Originally considered an unimportant fringe suburb of Wilmington, Ogden has become increasingly developed and populated since the late 1990s. This development was furthered by Ogden's location between the luxurious residential communities of Porter's Neck to the north, Middle Sound Loop in the middle, and Landfall to the south. Ogden is also fairly close to Figure Eight Island, an island community north of Wrightsville Beach. The Ogden area currently contains several grocery stores, including two Harris Teeters, drug stores, and many well reputed restaurants.
