More homebuilders added to giant new Warren County community

Some of the first of about 4,500 homes and other buildings at Union Village, the planned community taking shape west of Lebanon, are under construction. Two more home builders are joining the construction effort as the development prepares for the 2021 Dayton Homearama. The development, also already featuring the Warren County Sports Park, is expected to take shape over coming decades.

Springboro-based Vita Modern Homes and Hamilton-based JNB Custom Homes are breaking ground at Union Village, a unique, 1,230-acre development in now under construction near Lebanon in Warren County.

“We were drawn to the walkability and small-town feel offered at Union Village,” said JNB co-owner John Boyle. “It’s a great fit for us and we hope to build many homes there.”

The companies join nine other builders that began constructing homes in 2020 at Union Village in Turtlecreek Twp. The Union Village Builder’s Guild includes:

  • Ashford Homes
  • Berkey Homes
  • Brookstone Custom Homes
  • Charles Simms Development
  • Generations Homes
  • J&K Custom Homes
  • JNB Custom Homes
  • Clemens Companies
  • Redknot Homes
  • Second Story Homes
  • Vita Modern Homes

The builders are constructing a variety of floor plans ranging from $300,000 to $900,000. Single-family homes and townhomes are part of the community’s award-winning master plan, which is based on the 10 Principles of New Urbanism.

“We are excited for the opportunity to join the team in Union Village,” said Vita Modern Homes Manager Jason Lincoln. “It is an excellent opportunity for us to step outside of our comfort zone and integrate our modern and contemporary persona into the unique Union Village style.”

In October 2021, the community will host Dayton Homearama with Home Builders Association of Dayton. It’s the first time since 2012 that Homearama has taken place at a single site.

“This is the start of something special,” said Union Village Project Manager Matt Obringer. “We’re building a place that has character and charm, inviting front porches and a small-town, urban lifestyle. The concept is unique for new construction in this region.”

Just steps away from spacious front porches, the 17,000-square-foot Center Building was completed in 2020. The three-story building will house a LCNB National Bank branch and an independent restaurant.

Premier Health will open a health center at Union Village in Summer 2021, offering primary care, orthopedic, cardiology and urgent care services.

The Union Village Master Plan includes retail, restaurants and offices accessible via walkways and a 200-acre greenway system of meadows, woodland parks and pathways connecting to Armco Park and the Warren County Sports Park.

Union Village Development Company was founded in late 2015. New Urban Development Partners LLC, renown for award-winning new urban projects, is managing the development of Union Village.
