DAYTON, KY (FOX19) -

After a roller coaster of planning and discussions, the Manhattan Harbour project is taking shape.

The development will bring real estate to Dayton along the Ohio River valued at $1 million per individual home.

When developers open the doors to the million-dollar homes for Homefest in October, some of the visitors will want to see how the developer of Manhattan Harbour drastically changed the riverbank to build luxury homes in front of a flood wall.

We’re told there has been a decade worth of site engineering work.  

Here are some fast facts, according to the developer:

  • Total project area: 141 acres
  • Total area of the project needed to be elevated out the flood plain: 65 acres
  • Total amount of fill to elevate the site: 1,000,000 CY (over 50,000 loaded tri-axle trucks)
  • Length of riverfront: 1.7 miles
  • Over 10,000 hours of inspection on fills

As we mentioned above, developers trucked in 1 million cubic yards of dirt to raise the riverbank an average of 22 feet out of the floodplain.

Prices for the five homes on the tour range from $995,000 to $1.9 million.

Tickets can also be purchased at Kroger for $8.
