M/I Homes is joining the GHBA Benefit Homes Project as they prepare to break ground in Bridgeland. M/I Homes is donating the construction management of its Roseville Plan on a homesite donated by the Howard Hughes Corporation, Bridgeland’s developer.

Each year two to three homes are built for the Benefit Homes Project with donated land, construction management, materials, labor and services by GHBA members. These homes are constructed with upgrade materials and features and are sold at market value. Proceeds from the sale are donated to two local charities.

The beneficiaries are HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home. Since the project began 39 years ago, more than $11 million has been raised.


M/I Homes Inc. is one of the nation’s leading builders of single-family homes, having sold over 111,400 homes.

“This is the second time M/I Homes has built a Benefit Home,” said John Williams, president of the GHBA. “They are professionals within the industry who are dedicated to not only building quality, creative designs but also committed to giving back to the community. We are looking forward to the groundbreaking of their Roseville Plan later this month.”

The company’s homes are marketed and sold primarily under the trade names M/I Homes and Showcase Collection (exclusively by M/I Homes), and are also currently sold under the name Hans Hagen Homes in the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota market and Pinnacle Homes in the Detroit, Michigan market. The company has homebuilding operations in Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio; Indianapolis, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota; Detroit, Michigan; Tampa, Sarasota and Orlando, Florida; Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas; Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina; and the Virginia and Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C.

“M/I Homes is excited to be part of the Benefit Homes Project in 2019 in partnership with Bridgeland, the Howard Hughes Corporation and the GHBA. Knowing that the proceeds will go toward Operation Finally Home and HomeAid Houston is humbling, and we are happy to be involved.”

A second Benefit Home is currently under construction. Chesmar broke ground in February on the 2,746 sq. ft. Mesquite Plan—a two-story design featuring four bedrooms with a fifth bedroom/study option, three full baths, walk-in closets, a game room, an island kitchen and a two-story open family room off the kitchen. The home is being built on a lot in NorthGrove, located off FM 2978 in Magnolia, Texas in southern Montgomery County. Toll Brothers, the community’s developer, donated the homesite.
