RESTON, Va., Feb 03, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Comstock Homebuilding Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: CHCI) today announced that it closed on the $75 million acquisition of a 424-unit condominium conversion project in the Fair Oaks area of Fairfax, Virginia. Financing for the project was provided by Corus Bank, NA. The property will undergo significant improvements and is scheduled to open for sales in February. Settlements with condominium purchasers will begin in mid-2005.

"This is a tremendous property located in the heart of Fairfax County, Virginia where the market is extremely supply constrained," said Chris Clemente, founder and CEO. "In keeping with our market focus this property will be repositioned as a condominium community with value-priced homes designed for first time and early move-up home buyers. Comstock will be investing several million dollars in upgrades to the property including exterior facades, HVAC units, flooring, balconies and more. This will be a great addition to our already diverse portfolio of new home developments throughout the greater Washington DC metropolitan area."
