New Homes and Townhomes Planned for Grandview Heights
If there’s one thing that the City of Grandview Heights lacks, it’s new single family housing stock. The 100+ acre Grandview Yard development has added over 270 new apartment units to the city since 2012, but no homes for sale, until now. Wagenbrenner Development presented a proposal to the City of Grandview that would add 20 new single-family homes and 25 for-sale townhomes to a portion of Grandview Yard adjacent to the more traditional homes of Grandview Heights.
“We know that the housing market in Grandview is low in stock and high in demand, so we saw this as an opportunity and approached Nationwide Realty Investors to see if they’d be interested in a Harrison Park-type project and they were receptive,” explains Mike Amicon, Developer at Wagenbrenner. “It’s not the norm for us to not be the master developer on a site like this, but NRI has been great to work with.”
Amicon says that the new homes and townhomes will range in size from 2200 square feet to 3500 square feet with family-centric floorplans, attached garages, basements, optional roof terraces and other traditional amenities found in Grandview Heights. He said that pricing has not been set yet, but says that they will be market-rate, similar to their homes and townhomes in Harrison West.
“We’ve already gotten 47 phone calls since the news of this development was leaked in December, so we know that demand is crazy,” he said. “These homes provide a lifestyle where you’ll be able to walk to all the amenities that you want to enjoy like restaurants and bars, but also be able to do it from a family home and be in one of the best school systems too — it has all the right ingredients.”
Wagenbrenner is hoping to break ground on the first four-unit townhome building in mid-to-late April following the completion of a new water main. The construction of single family homes is expected to start a month or two after that.
