Thanks to Cincinnati Business Courier and Tom Demeropolis for the article on our development, Abington! It’s located in Symmes Twp and Loveland Schools.

A new single-family home development is underway in the hot northeast suburban market.

Build Cincinnati, through its development arm Land Resource, is developing Abington in Symmes Township. The new community will have 21 homesites. Fischer Homes will be the exclusive builder in the new community.

Mike Hines with Build Cincinnati said the in-fill site is already drawing a lot of attention from potential buyers. The neighborhood is about 70 days away from being ready for home construction.

“It’s going to be a fantastic site for us,” Hines told me.

Fischer Homes will build its masterpiece collection of homes in Abington. Homes are expected to be priced between $410,000 and more than $600,000.

Steve Whaley, corporate marketing manager with Fischer Homes, said the homebuilder has received interest from hundreds of potential buyers. To handle what it has called “unprecedented demand,” Fischer Homes will host a “community release event” to share information about the project.

The meeting is scheduled 5-6:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at Marmalade Lily in Loveland, located at 9850 Schlottman Road. Fischer Homes will accept refundable $1,000 checks at the event for customers to have the chance to reserve a homesite and secure pre-construction pricing. The order of home and homesite selection will be determined at the conclusion of the event.

“It’s a prime location,” Whaley told me. “There is not a lot of new building in Loveland in a prime spot.”

Another recent development is seeing a similar level of interest from buyers. M/I Homes hosted a lot lottery for its homesites in the Ambleside Meadows development in Mason. M/I Homes also said it’s seeing “huge demand” for homes in its Jackson Woods community in Clermont County’s Miami Township. Like Abington, Jackson Woods is in Loveland School District.

Abington sits on about 8 acres on the west side of North Lebanon Road between Home of the Brave Park and south of Union Cemetery Road. The community is close to Loveland Schools, downtown historic Loveland and will have a path that connects to Home of the Brave Park. While Abington is located in Symmes Township, it is part of Loveland City Schools.

Fischer Homes plans to start construction on a model home in January with delivery of the first customer homes expected in May 2017.
