Comstock Homebuilding Announces Joint Ventures for Development of Condominiums, Townhomes and Single Family Homes in the District of Columbia

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2010) - Comstock Homebuilding Companies, Inc. ("Comstock") (NASDAQ: CHCI) today announced that it has formed joint ventures with Four Points, LLC ("Four Points") for the development of two new communities located in Washington, DC, combining the residential development expertise of Comstock with the local knowledge of Four Points.

Comstock plans to commence site improvements and construction on both communities in mid-2011, upon issuance of final building permits. The two communities, to be known as The Hampshires and Cedar Hill, will include approximately 150 new homes. The Hampshires, located in the Northeast section of the District of Columbia along New Hampshire Avenue, will include approximately 110 townhomes and single family homes, while Cedar Hill, located in the Southeast section of Washington, DC, near the home of the Washington Nationals baseball team, will include approximately 40 townhomes and townhome style condominiums.

"We are excited about our partnership with Four Points and look forward to commencing work on these new communities in early 2011," said Christopher Clemente, Comstock's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe the strength of the Washington, DC area economy, and the demand for new housing in the District of Columbia provides tremendous opportunity to complement our existing platform in the greater Washington DC area." 

"We are big believers in the continuing demand for reasonably priced, for-sale housing in Washington, DC. These joint ventures with Comstock will allow us to deliver exactly that in both the Lamond Riggs and historic Anacostia neighborhoods," said Stan Voudrie, principal of Four Points.
