Only a few short months ago we were announcing the groundbreaking of four new Homeport homes in the American Addition neighborhood, located just three and a half miles northeast of Downtown Columbus. This afternoon, a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place to celebrate the completion of six new homes in this neighborhood. Needless to say, the mild winter this season has been great for construction.
These new houses are the first of many that will infill this historic suburban-style neighborhood and provide quality housing for residents looking for affordable options to become homeowners. Currently, American Addition only has around 50 residences, but Homeport plans to add over 100 new houses over the next decade.
The six newly completed homes range in price from $117,000 to $119,000 and range in size from 1,488 to 1,641 square feet. Homes are built to AWARE standards (a sustainable building standard similar to LEED Certification) which means that appliances are energy efficient, finishing produces are emit low or no offgasses, and construction waste material gets recycled.
Anyone interested in touring the new homes can attend today starting at 2:00pm at 1327 Lee Avenue. Below you’ll find photos of the new homes being added to the neighborhood.
