A groundbreaking ceremony was held Jan. 20 at the ChimneyRidge subdivision, site of the 59th HOMEARAMA® that will take place Aug. 6-21.
“We are very honored to have HOMEARAMA® come to our city, and we welcome you. We are thrilled to have Greg Berling bring his vision to the City of Loveland,” said Mayor Kathy Bailey during the ceremony.
The ChimneyRidge subdivision is presented by Greg Berling and Ken Campbell and is located on 26 wooded acres off Butterworth Road on the Warren County side of the City of Loveland. Six fully landscaped and decorated homes in a variety of architectural styles will be featured in HOMEARAMA®.
Builders include AR Homes; Drees Homes; Fry Homes; Justin Doyle Homes; Redknot Homes; and, WP Land Company, LLC. The homes will be priced at $750,000 to over 1M.
Dave Stroup, President of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati, welcomed attendees to the ceremony. He described HOMEARAMA® as the “idea showcase,” where attendees are guaranteed to see the latest in new home design, technology, energy efficiency, outdoor living spaces, landscaping, and decorating.
Stroup went on to say that homebuilding is essential to the economic fiber of any community and is helping bring essential jobs to the area: “It’s estimated that on average, each time a home is built, five new permanent construction jobs alone are created and many other temporary jobs.”
City and Chamber officials were recognized at the ceremony including Mayor Kathy Bailey, City Manager David Kennedy, and President of the Little Miami River Chamber Alliance CeeCee Collins. The show's homebuilders and presenting sponsors were also recognized.
HOMEARAMA® was last held in the City of Loveland in 1989 at the Glen of Claiborne subdivision.
