With summer right around the corner, Springfield’s dynamic master community, Melody Parks, is taking shape and gearing up for home sales. Behind this exciting development are Borror and Dillin Corp, who have carefully chosen two esteemed builders, Arbor Homes and Fischer Homes, to bring their residential vision to life. This collaborative effort will play a major role in shaping the community, promising a blend of modern, affordable living and timeless charm.

Arbor Homes

Arbor Homes, known for their dedication to providing quality homes at affordable prices, will also be a key player in Melody Parks. Their involvement began with a strategic agreement with Borror last summer, securing 93 lots with an option for future expansion, potentially reaching up to 400-500 lots.


The first phase will see the construction of two model homes, with plans to break ground this summer. Arbor Homes plans to ultimately introduce an impressive lineup of 12 single-family home designs, ranging from cozy 1,200-square-foot layouts to expansive 3,200-square-foot residences. With this diverse range, Arbor Homes aims to meet the needs of every homeowner in this dynamic community.

Being able to provide affordable housing to that pocket of town is exciting for us,” says Paul Metzger, Arbor’s Director of Land Acquisition & Development for Cincinnati and Dayton. “It’s exciting to see families be able to afford the home of their dreams.”

Affordability Meets Elegance
The Arbor Homes in Melody Parks will feature modern floor plans, spacious kitchens with islands, and customizable options that strike a balance between affordability and luxury. From upgraded cabinetry to electric fireplaces, quartz and granite countertops and sunrooms, Arbor Homes ensures that buyers have ample choices to personalize their homes according to their tastes.

Arbor Homes also prioritizes energy efficiency in their constructions. Each home will feature high-efficiency furnaces and heat pumps, coupled with adherence to local code regulations and insulation requirements. By building newer, more efficient homes, Arbor Homes seeks to provide long-term savings for homeowners, making the transition from renters to homeownership or downsizing more accessible and affordable.

Fischer Homes

Fischer Homes, recognized as a top 30 homebuilder, will bring its signature Designer Collection to Melody Parks. Responsible for constructing 44 single-family homes in Estates at Melody Parks, Fischer Homes anticipates a development timeline of 3 to 4 years, with sales set to begin this summer.


We are thrilled to be expanding into Springfield and are excited to bring award-winning designs to the community,” said Elizabeth Breitenstein, Market President for Fischer Homes’ Dayton Division. “Melody Parks will be well positioned to meet the demand for new homes given the economic expansion coming to the area.”

Fischer Homes is also a proud ENERGY STAR partner, committed to prioritizing sustainability and eco-friendly practices. Between their superior insulation standards, locally sourced materials, and energy efficient designs, they design homes that cut energy costs by up to 50% compared to those built twenty years ago.

Diverse Customization Options

Fischer Homes offers future Melody Parks residents a suite of flexible design and customization options, empowering homeowners to reflect their unique style in every corner of their homes. With layouts ranging from two-story, contemporary 5-level homes to convenient ranch styles, there’s a configuration that suits every taste.

While every Fischer home will boast spacious open kitchens, luxurious private owner’s retreats with spa-like baths, and basement space, homeowners will have the option to tailor their floor plans to their unique preferences. Whether it’s adding a finished recreation room for entertainment, crafting a cozy guest suite for visitors, incorporating a versatile loft, or establishing a practical pocket office, residents can create a home that perfectly aligns with their lifestyle needs. Moreover, residents can select from a variety of exterior styles, including Pacific Craftsman, Modern Farmhouse, and Coastal Cottage, to complement their home’s aesthetic.

And for homeowners who want to control the finer details, Fischer’s Lifestyle Design Center in Washington Township acts as a haven of inspiration. Here, homeowners can find the latest selections of tile, flooring, countertops, cabinets, and more, guaranteeing that every detail of their home mirrors their taste and style.


Melody Parks represents a transformative step forward for Springfield, offering a dynamic master planned community that echoes the spirit of the city’s rich history while embracing innovation and community-centric design. Through the collaborative efforts of Arbor Homes, Fischer Homes, Borror Development, Dillin Corp, and the Greater Springfield CIC, Melody Parks promises a diverse range of housing options set amidst beautifully crafted parks and neighborhood-focused businesses.

Keep up with the progress of Melody Parks.
