Champion Commercial Structures, a division of Champion Home Builders, a leading manufacturer of modular homes and buildings for government and commercial applications, today announced in partnership with Russell Building Group that the company will build a series of 83 homes as part of Flint, Mich.'s Smith Village Neighborhood. The Smith Village urban redevelopment project is intended to integrate low and moderate income homebuyers without a noticeable difference in quality and design.

The project, funded by a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant, broke ground in July. The first phase is slated for completion Dec. 31, 2011 and will consist of 27 homes built offsite and transported to the development. Champion began delivery on the first phase of homes on Oct. 18, 2011. The homes will be assembled onsite, with the basements, garages, porches, exterior facades, including all siding and brick work, roofing and mechanical systems completed by local workers and contractors. 

Smith Village will consist of seven custom Champion home designs, which range from approximately 1,500 to more than 2,000 square feet. Designs include a mix of three and four bedroom layouts, and each includes a large master bedroom with walk-in closets and a minimum of two full baths. Homes will be finished with amenities such as energy star appliances, "low e" vinyl windows, energy efficient heating and air-conditioning systems, and ceramic tile floors.
