The Polar Frontier
Kate joined her friends from the New Albany Women’s Network (NAWN) for a docent lead visit to the new Polar Frontier exhibit at the Columbus Zoo . She said it was just incredible and snapped a few pics for me to include.
The Polar Bears are Back
This brand new multi-$million is just opening. It’s just part of the continuing newness and excitement that helps keep the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium ranked #1 in the country. It’s another reason why New Albany Ohio is such a great place to live.
The BIA (Building Industry Association) recently announced that New Albany, Ohio will host the 2010 BIA Parade of Homes. The Parade of Homes is scheduled to take place July 10 – 25, 2010. This 58th Parade will be located in Ackerly Park, an 18 acre site near the intersection of Market Street and Main Street in the New Albany Village Center District. This location is believed to be the first ever Parade situated within the center of a community and as such, creates a unique opportunity for builders and buyers alike.
There will be much to look forward to next year. In addition to the signature Georgian architecture, leisure trails, parks, ponds and pleasant streetscapes that are the essence of each New Albany neighborhood, the homes of Ackerly Park will present a unique opportunity for environmentally friendly living. Parade homes will be located within walking distance of the majority of New Albany’s amenities and will showcase the latest technology, energy efficiency options, durable products and cost sensitive construction techniques.
Visit www.NewAlbanyOhio.com to see both a rendering of the New Albany Parade site map as well as a plot of the lots available. If you would like to preview these lots or consider building a home as one of the Parade of Homes, please contact Kate & Tony Thomas at New Albany Realty.
