Homearama returns to Norfolk’s East Beach neighborhood

The East Beach community is a
walkable neighborhood along  the
Chesapeake Bay in Norfolk.

Tidewater Builders Association has announced that Norfolk’s East Beach community will host its Fall 2010 Homearama showcase of homes. The event, set for Oct. 2-17, will feature up to 16 homes, with prices expected to be in the $450,000 to $700,000 range.

It will mark the second time this premier new urbanist coastal community has hosted the event.

In 2004, Homearama featured the neighborhood’s original 16 homes, highlighting porches, bay front greens, park-like open spaces, sidewalks and other elements of a traditional neighborhood development. Today, more than 250 families make it their home.

"East Beach has a lot to offer Homearama guests and homebuyers," said TBA President Bill Halprin. "These are great prices for homes in such an outstanding community, which is distinctly known for its attention to architectural detail. Many of our builders have expressed enthusiasm for building in East Beach."

East Beach is situated on 100 acres along the Chesapeake Bay in Norfolk. Surrounded by water, the neighborhood is fashioned after classic southeastern seaboard coastal villages.

The master plan for this $500 million development includes a minimum of 700 residences, neighborhood restaurants, boutique shops, a Bay Front Club, unique parks and public places, as well as business offices.

East Beach is a unique initiative between the developers, East Beach Company LLC, the City of Norfolk and Norfolk Redevelopment & Housing Authority.

We are extremely proud that East Beach has been selected once again for Homearama," said Bart Frye, managing partner for East Beach Company, LLC, "and we’re looking forward to showcasing the neighborhood to the public now that it is has sold more than 300 building sites."

An informational meeting for interested builders has been scheduled for 10 a.m. Feb. 10, and a lot drawing has been set for 2 p.m. Feb 17, both at the East Beach Bay Front Club.
