Mason City Council to Consider $150M Project

A $150 million project will bring more than 200 new homes to the Greater Cincinnati area. Developer CT Devco Inc. plans to built the new upscale residential community on the site of a former golf course, in Mason.

A proposed $150 million development that would bring more than 200 new homes to the site of the Crooked Tree golf course in Mason is up for final approval by city officials.

In an appearance before the city planning commission on March 3, Bob Garlock of Bayer Becker, a land planning firm and consultant to CT Devco Inc. detailed plans for the project, which would be known as Crooked Tree Preserve, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

CT Devco wants to build 212 single-family homes on the 168-acre former location of Crooked Tree Golf Course at Bethany and Mason-Montgomery roads. The commission voted unanimously to recommend the preliminary plan, which requires final approval from the Mason City Council.

Of the 212 lots, 199 are designated for R-3 residential zoning, which specifies a minimum size of 100 feet wide and 15,000 square feet. The remaining lots are zoned R-6, which would allow for construction of up to 64 condos. but CT Devco will instead build 13 single-family homes on 85-foot-wide lots, David Brooks, the owner of Crooked Tree, told the Enquirer. He added that there is currently a lack of custom homes in the Mason market. Also included will be 50 acres of green space.

Home prices will range from $500,000 to more than $1 million. CT Devco Inc. has retained Drees Homes and Fischer Homes to develop the 212 homes, and plans to bring a third home builder to the project.
