Homearama returns to The Riverfront at Harbour View
Large park settings create scenic views for residents at The Riverfront at Harbour View, site of Tidewater Builders Association’s Fall Homearama 2011.

Tidewater Builders’ Association has announced that The Riverfront at Harbour View in northern Suffolk will host its Fall 2011 Homearama showcase of homes. The event, set for Oct. 15-30, will feature eight to 13 homes, with prices expected to start in the low $500,000s.   

The resort-style community, developed by East West Communities, last hosted Homearama in 2001, when it drew more than 100,000 visitors.

“We feel extremely fortunate to work with East West Communities on another first-class event,” said TBA President Bill Halprin. “Their communities are known for their beautiful landscaping and upscale curb appeal, as well as the resort lifestyle they offer. They created a beautiful setting for our first Spring Homearama at Founders Pointe last year and we know we can expect even more of the same at The Riverfront.”

The Riverfront is home to about 1,000 families, who enjoy the peaceful waterways and scenic views of the Nansemond and James Rivers and the community’s convenient location in the midst of the shops, restaurants, grocery stores, movie theater and health & wellness facilities of Harbour View.  The Riverfront is just 15 minutes from downtown Norfolk, centrally located to the Southside and the Peninsula.

The Homearama homes will all face a large center island park, over an acre in size, which provides scenic views from every front porch, and the perfect place for children to play and neighbors to gather. 

The community offers a long list of amenities which include golf, volleyball, tennis, two waterfront parks with piers, playgrounds, a lakeside amphitheater, walking and jogging paths, bike trails and a Swim Club with two outdoor pools, clubhouse & a full-time activities director.

“We have enjoyed great success with Homearama, the builders and TBA in the past and we look forward to expanding on that success to make this the finest home show it can be,” commented Branch Lawson, President of East West Communities. “We believe all the elements are in place for that to happen. Welcome back to Suffolk, and to TBA’s first community inducted into their Hall of Fame for Excellence!”

The Homearama sites are priced from $135,000 to $152,500, averaging a half-acre in size. A lot drawing for interested builders has been scheduled for noon on Tuesday, March 22, in the conference room of the TowneBank Member Service Center in Harbour View.

Builders interested in participating should contact Sandra Amidon at 757-305-9045 or [email protected].
