Moceri Breaks Ground

Presenting Sponsor Announced for the 2014 Ultimate Homearama®

Oakland Township, MI – November 6, 2013 — Oakland County Executive, L. Brooks Patterson, representatives from Oakland Township and surrounding communities, dignitaries from the Home Builders Association of Southeast Michigan, The Pinnacle development team and participating homebuilders took part in a
groundbreaking ceremony today for the 2014 Homearama®. Recognized as the ultimate home tour, the event will be hosted at The Pinnacle, located off the north side of Silverbell Road, east of Adams Road in Oakland Township, Michigan.

The Pinnacle will be the most exclusive collection of homes in Moceri’s array of master-planned neighborhoods called The Oaklands, that line Adams Road from Dutton to Silverbell Roads. Oakland County Executive Patterson commented, “The first phase of homebuilding at The Pinnacle is projected to add $137.5 million in new construction activity along with millions in local taxes, wages and local business revenue. More than 1,700 area jobs will also be supported by The Pinnacle development.” “The demand for luxury housing in Oakland County is being supercharged by the growth in the automotive and technology sectors, which are booming in our area,” he stated.

Michael Stoskopf, CEO of the Home Builders Association of Southeast Michigan, declared, “The downturn in the homebuilding industry here is officially over! Although this will be the first Homearama® celebration in more than a decade – it will be well worth the wait.” “The Pinnacle enclave is simply majestic in every detail, from the grand entry monument, to the original sculpture, to the spectacular water features and ironwork, no detail has been overlooked. However, the crème de la crème will be the six magnificent dream homes that will be lavishly decorated and landscaped by some of the nation’s best professionals,” he continued. “Visitors will have the opportunity to see all of the one-of-a-kind concepts that are found in $1.8 – $4 million custom homes. The 2014 Homearama® will be a must see for every family,” Stoskopf enthused.

Dominic J. Moceri, who heads the Moceri Companies’ development division said, “Our design team devoted thousands of hours to shape The Pinnacle. It is truly the crown jewel of The Oaklands. Our vision was to create a true executive sanctuary… a place to relax and revitalize, a place to share memories with family and friends, and above all, a place to enjoy the finest that life has to offer. We wanted to create a community on par with Palm Beach, Greenwich, Augusta and other exclusive addresses. We also studied the homes and public spaces in Detroit’s historic neighborhoods like Palmer Park, Boston Edison and the Grosse Pointes for details that we could incorporate at The Pinnacle that would pay homage to Detroit’s heyday, when the city was often referred to as the Paris of West. Each of the four custom builders share our passion to build exquisite homes that are world’s apart from anything else in the market.” “After all,” Moceri said, “there can only be one “Ultimate Homearama®.”

The 2014 Homearama® is scheduled for touring by the public from August 29, 2014 (Labor Day weekend) through September 21, 2014. Leading custom home building companies will include:
Arteva Homes – Brian Szliter & Vito Terracciano
Cranbrook Homes – Sebastian Lombardo
MJC Companies – Michael A. Chirco
Moceri Companies – Frank Moceri

Three of the showcase model homes featured at the Homearama® will be presented by master builder,
Frank Moceri, and architect, Dominick Tringali. After working together for 20 years, they formed a strategic alliance last year, which has resulted in the exclusive Architectural Collection Custom Homes. “Dominick and I believe that design excellence and the best construction practices are inseparable,” commented Frank Moceri. “Our experienced crews have been with us for decades. That means that we can build to a level of quality and detail that others without our resources can’t achieve. Our clients are happy to attest to the quality of the homes we build as well as the professionalism and courtesy of our crews,“ he said. “Frank and I are selling at higher price points to more savvy buyers than ever before,” said Dominick Tringali. The Oaklands is quickly nearing its build-out point and there is a real shortage of homesites of this caliber. For the Homearama®, we’re creating three amazing homes that visitors have never seen before. We have designed a French-themed home with authentic European-style design. It will feature an elevator to accommodate the growing “aging in place” market. Our second model will be the first Homearama® model with a courtyard-style pool that will be an extension of the home’s main entertainment area. The lower level will be themed in a pub-type atmosphere, complete with an indoor golf simulator. The third home will be the only ranch style home in Homearama®. It will be a French Country ranch that will be the talk of the show! Our design trends for 2014 and beyond will feature his and her offices, a kids study station, a wine lounge, master suite with sitting room, spa bath and even an enormous walk-in closet with a separate shoe closet for her,” Tringali said.

Nothing about the 2014 Homearama® will be mundane, everything will be revved up to the max. In addition to a traditional ceremony to mark the groundbreaking, six backhoes also roared to life and began to dig all six basements at the same time. Why? “Because we have only nine months to build six amazing homes that normally require up to 2 years each to finish. But that’s the way we roll,” said Dominic J. Moceri.
