One of the midstate's leading homebuilders is about to start erecting the first homes in a major mixed-use development in Manheim Township.

Lancaster-based Charter Homes & Neighborhoods recently opened pre-sales of its Belmont neighborhood off Fruitville Pike.

The neighborhood represents the residential component of the $100 million Shoppes at Belmont, which is slated for an early 2018 opening. The mixed-use development will be anchored by the midstate's first Whole Foods store.

The residential piece at Belmont will include 74 townhomes and 13 single-family homes on about seven acres. 

Ahead of an Oct. 14 preview event, Charter President Rob Bowman said his company has experienced record demand for the Belmont project, which is a few minutes from Charter's headquarters. Eight hundred people have expressed interest in living at Belmont, he said. "By far, it's the largest number we've ever had."

Part of that demand can be attributed to the location of the overall development, which is just off Route 30. Demand for new housing also remains strong as the residential market continues to soar.

Charter has been doing site work and paving streets in the new neighborhood. Construction on the first homes will begin this month and should be completed by February, Bowman said.

Prices for the homes have not yet been released. Charter plans to unveil figures at its preview event, which is expected to draw at least 100 people.

"With that demand, the homes could go very quickly," Bowman said.

Charter also is marketing 24 new single-family homes at its nearby Grandview neighborhood.

We need more walkable communities in South Central PA. Not only is the necessity for a car and having to drive everywhere expensive but it also contributes to the obesity epidemic.
