Mar. 10, 2020 - New Single Family Homes Planned for Milo-Grogan

New City Homes was recently featured in an exclusive article for Columbus Underground for our 5-home streetscape happening in Milo-Grogan! We've completed two homes so far elsewhere in the neighborhood and plan to develop the remaining lots incrementally over the next two years or so. Half of the parcels that we own were purchased from the Columbus Land Bank, which allowed us to offer the initial houses at a lower price than otherwise possible for new construction.

Not to mention, we also added the 15-year tax abatement that was put in place for Milo-Grogan in 2017, which will help to lower costs for the homeowners. Check out the article, sketchings and some of the progress updates below!

I purchased a newly built home through New City and I had an amazing experience. I loved all of the upgraded features that you normally don't get with new built homes. And New City paid great attention to detail and was able to answer all of my questions and even customize features to my liking. I highly recommend New City as a builder!

Dear Brian and the rest of the New City Family,

We wanted to take a moment and thank you for helping us build our dream house! When we started the process we were newly married and looking for the perfect home to build our life together. It just so happens at the same time you had recently broke ground on a new lot in Milo Grogan. It was a great fit from the beginning of the process and turned in to an unbelievable experience over the course of sevenmonths.

The process started when our realtor, Misty Linn, had suggested we look at your lots in Milo. We were familiar with your homes through our friends purchasing one and you were building right where we wanted to move. It seemed too good to be true and we all know how things like that end.....usually! This was different, the people at New City were different and their commitment to satisfaction and craftsmanship was different. We were amazed with the process from start to finish and couldn’t be happier with our home.
Being that we started the process early, you allowed us to pick out almost all of the interior and exterior finishes. This made the process so special to us, as you were allowing it to be customized to our needs. You were so flexible throughout the process even allowing us to redo the master bedroom closet for a custom built-in closet and add a recessed electric fireplace to the living room. Those little touches meant
a lot to us and made it feel different than most new build homes, our style had been factored into the wonderful structure.
We have heard horror stories with building houses and recently had a friend go through one with a different builder. A builder that didn’t listen, wouldn’t work with them to customize their dream home and didn’t want to involve them in the processes. I can honestly say, that was not our experience with New City and we would recommend them to everyone. Yes building a home is stressful, but I couldn’t think of a better company to put our faith and trust in then Brian and his New City team. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, - Michael & Jordan

This is a small thank you to you and all your staff for all of the hard work and efforts on our house.  We are very appreciative of the guidance and support along the way.  It is very clear that everyone truly cares about the quality of work done and our experience.  We will continue spreading the word.  Our house is beautiful.  Words just can’t express.  It’s truly a dream come true for us.  Your entire process from start to finish was beyond our expectations.  Everyone who walks into our home is blown away by the craftsmanship and detail.  Every single team member deserves a hug for their supporting role in driving our home to the finish.  Thank you again for our home.
