Woodlawn officials knew they could attract residents if they had new housing stock. The Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati agreed, and during the week of October 7-15th, held its first CiTiRAMA® event outside of City of Cincinnati limits.
CiTiRAMA, formed in 1996 as an annual urban, single-site new home show produced by a partnership between the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati and the City of Cincinnati. The show acts as a catalyst for the stimulation of revitalization of urban communities by introducing potential home buyers to the best urban living Cincinnati has to offer.
This year’s CiTiRAMA was held at Woodlawn Meadows, a development located off of Mayview Forest Drive. Woodlawn Meadows features 43 single-family lots in the heart of the Village of Woodlawn and the prestigious Princeton School District.
Twenty-nine of the 43 lots available at CiTiRAMA sold at the event, demonstrating that the Home Builders Association made the right bet. Home prices ranged from $200,000 to $375,000.
”The Woodlawn Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) shared a vision of building new single family housing. That goal was realized thanks to our teamwork with public and private partners that resulted in the most successful CiTiRAMA ever. The Woodlawn CIC is building on that success and is currently researching the redevelopment of Springfield Pike,” says Woodlawn Mayor Michael Donohue.
