Jack Brandenburg, president and owner of Brandenburg Development LLC in Loveland, recently spent $2.6 million to acquire 25 acres on Winding River Road across from the Tournament Player's Club clubhouse, where he's building The Fairways at River's Glen.

, the premier local homebuilders' event scheduled to run June 8-23 at Vista Pointe at River's Bend.This year's 11 Homearama homes are priced between $750,000 and $2 million.As of June 6, three of those homes had been sold, said a spokesman for the show.
Brandenburg plans to spend $8 million getting The Fairways ready for a select group of homebuilders to bid upon 66 lots, each measuring about one-third of an acre.

is sifting through a roster of potential homebuilders to construct some of his
homes, the initial designs of which include gourmet kitchens, bathrooms with spas, custom media rooms and outdoor entertaining areas.Individual builders will be able to construct their own final designs.
