Belvedere will Survive

And that is a very good thing. From today’s HooK blog:

… the Church Hill name isn’t going away. Instead, Goldschmidt and his Church Hill partner, Jamie Spence, have become Eagle employees and will continue to oversee the Belvedere projects under the Church Hill name.

Daily Progress has a story this morning.

    As a new buyer of a Church Hill home not located in Belvedere, I wonder if this optimism can be stretched over to the other neighborhoods that Church Hill is/was developing.

    To the person who emailed me about this story (my email to you was kicked back) –

    Thanks for your email and for reading.

    Church Hill, like many builders, is going through some rough times right now, and the rumors have been swirling for some time.

    First Time –

    My significant other called Church Hill Homes today about some random stuff related to our house and, of course, she asked about the recent news. We’d encourage any new owners or potential buyers to do the same.

    They provided us with details about future plans for our neighborhood and for the company as a whole. They’ve been very transparent about the current situation, and we appreciate their honesty.

    I live in a townhouse built by one of Jamie Spence’s previous companies. Stuff was never finished (punch list repairs.) Once all the units were sold, the company declared bankruptcy and I and my neighbors were stuck with problems in our homes and no recourse. Now another company, same owners and another set of future homeowners who may be in for the same ride.
