Who We Are
The Wright Field Development Company was selected by the U.S. Air Force to privatize military housing at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in Dayton, Ohio. The construction began in August 2002, and was successfully completed in December 2005. Miller-Valentine Group, Woolpert LLP, and Hunt Building Corporation formed the joint venture of Wright Field Development Company to pursue this project. Previously called Page Manor and Woodland Hills, the new housing development has been renamed "The Prairies at Wright Field" and "The Woods at Wright Field".
Miller-Valentine Group was responsible for all the development, construction, renovation and demolition for this project, and is currently responsible for all property management of the homes, including leasing, operations and maintenance. Miller-Valentine Group has developed approximately 8,000 housing units throughout Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and North Carolina.
Woolpert's role included community planning, architectural and engineering site design and land development. They have 90 years' experience and more than 50 years' experience at WPAFB.
Hunt Building Corporation is currently designing, developing, constructing and managing more than 49,000 housing units, with over 34,000 of those units being military.
These communities are currently home to more than 1,300 service men and women and their families. Virtually an entire new community has been created, with the addition of 789 new single-family homes, garden homes and townhouses. The new homes have modern floor plans and amenities including attached garages, privacy fencing, multiple bedrooms and high-speed internet access. Additionally, all of the units in The Woods at Wright Field have received renovations including lighted ceiling fans in every room, multiple telephone and cable outlets, exterior carriage lighting and automatic garage doors with remote openers. Subsequently, all units in both The Prairies at Wright Field and The Woods at Wright Field will undergo major renovation beginning 25 years after completion of the initial redevelopment and renovation.
The U.S. Air Force and President Bush decided to privatize military housing, including renovation and replacement of some of the existing along with new construction to improve the quality of life for our dedicated service men, women and their families who are stationed here. Recognizing the many sacrifices the members of our Armed Forces endure on our behalf, we are both pleased and proud to partner with the U.S Air Force on such a worthwhile project.
