M/I Celebrates New Model Homes at Crown

Grand Opening Celebration Set for September 14

GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2013) - They say good things come to those who wait. Visitors will get their first look at the much-anticipated M/I model homes (NYSE: MHO) at Crown this weekend during a Grand Opening Celebration. The models -- the Picasso and the Monet -- will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

A pop-up art gallery, featuring the works of local artists through the Capital Arts Network, will be part of fun beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Artwork will be on display in all Crown model homes. In M/I's model homes several artists will be on hand from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. to talk about their creations. One artist will be painting live, and another will raffle off a completed work.

Crown Wine & Beer will also host a special wine tasting and food pairing in M/I's Picasso model. The festivities will be found at the Crown sales centers on Decoverly Drive. Crown is conveniently located on Fields Road near the I-270 and I-370 interchange.

In keeping with the innovative nature of Crown as the urban heart of Montgomery County, M/I Homes wanted to do something special and set out to design distinctive floor plans unique to the community. Both M/I models feature rooftop terraces that create outdoor living space and enhance the urban feel of Crown.

"We take great pride in our homes," said M/I Division President Jerry Berman. "They are truly designed for the way people really live today. But it doesn't stop there. By adding great interior design, we offer home buyers the opportunity to experience thoughtful space planning and livability while providing ideas of inspiration."

To achieve that great interior design M/I Homes selected P Four, one of the region's premier merchandising firms.

"We wanted our interior design to reflect the urban-inspired lifestyle of Crown. The models were inspired by leading color trends that feature two very distinct lifestyles. The Picasso features an open concept plan that provides a very urban casual feel that is current, yet comfortable. The Monet is a sophisticated design that is geared toward formal entertaining with a modern style of black and white that radiates pure elegance," said Shawn Evans, owner of P Four.
