Another New Restaurant Coming To Springfield

Bleu Chocolat in Springfield Opening Soon

Bleu Chocolat Daily Record Story LinknA new restaurant is planned for the former Three Layers Cafe building at 1602 Walnut Street in Springfield.

The Daily Record ran an announcement this week about the plans to open this very cool space with its brick walled interior. It’s a great story about the new owners in addition to details on another great place to eat in the neighborhood. The TerraWise team is excited for our residents and future buyers…and also for a new lunch opportunity just a few blocks north of our corporate office!

Wonder if they will bring back the popular “Open Mic” night that ran for several years at Three Layers…

Congrats to the new owners and welcome to Historic Springfield.

Springfield Buyer Shares Experience Building Home

Liz Alicea Shared Story As TerraWise Buyer & Realtor

Nothing is more important to us at TerraWise Homes than the satisfaction of our customers. Thanks to Liz for sharing this comment about buying with us in Springfield:

“My home buying experience with TerraWise was phenomenal! Their attention to detail, desire to deliver a high-quality, energy-efficient product really becomes evident as the process unfolds. As a Realtor, I see quite a few new homes from area builders, and most do not come close in terms of construction quality. It takes a lot to stand out with all of the new home building going on in this area, but this experience and this builder truly stood apart! I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in a quality, energy efficient product at a fair price.”

Team Celebrates Springfield With Signature Beer at Hyperion

Terra-Weisse Beer On Tap For Limited Time At Hyperion Brewery

TerraWise Team Taps Terra-Weisse Hyperion Brewery BeerTerraWise Homes celebrated a record year for sales of homes in Springfield with the tapping of a signature beer brewed at the local Hyperion Brewery in the historic Jacksonville neighborhood. The TerraWise team worked with the brew master at Hyperion to develop the signature limited edition Terra-Weisse. They gathered on December 5 at the brewery at 1740 North Main Street for the initial private sampling before the brew goes public.

“It has been a great year for Springfield with the opening of new businesses, including Hyperion, along Main Street and I believe we have helped to drive the growth of services by bringing more new families to the neighborhood,” said Melody Shacter, TerraWise Homes’ President. “We are delighted the team at Hyperion is helping us to celebrate mutual success with our very own Terra-Weisse beer.”

Jac Shacter is the TerraWise Sales Consultant for Springfield and led the effort for the company with Hyperion. He said the beer is a classic Weisse that is typically blended with syrup as it is poured. He and others on the TerraWise team participated in the crafting process and selection of the accompanying syrup flavors, which include Honey, Kiwi and Pineapple/Chipotle.

The Terra-Weisse beer will be officially released to the public at Hyperion on December 8 to coincide with the annual Springfield Holiday Home Tour, which TerraWise Homes is one of the primary event sponsors.

During that time, they have built several homes bringing forward the latest energy efficient net-zero energy technology while maintaining the character of the neighborhood by designing homes that blend perfectly with the historic architecture.

Construction Unearths Family History in Historic Springfield

Crew Installing Irrigation Finds Buried Gravestone

Springfield Historic Gravestone Found by TerraWise HomesTerraWise Homes has been leading the revival of new homes in historic Springfield since 2013. During that time, they have built several homes bringing forward the latest energy efficient net-zero energy technology while maintaining the character of the neighborhood by designing homes that blend perfectly with the historic architecture. Recently, they went from creating new family histories to turning up a chapter of forgotten history for one of Springfield’s early families.

According to company president Melody Shacter, a new irrigation system was being installed at the TerraWise Homes’ model at 1221 North Liberty Street when the crew uncovered an old gravestone of Martha H. Troeger. Shacter contacted the Springfield Improvement Association and Archives and their historian Jeff Gardner researched the family.

Troeger is actually buried in the Evergreen Cemetery.   She was a nursing student and nearly 26 when she died in 1925. Gardner is attempting to determine why Martha’s family had two headstones made for her, and why one came to rest at this location; however, the property where the TerraWise model is located was originally her parent’s home. Gardner’s research led to a few of Troeger’s relatives and he took the lead in trying to make contact. He was finally successful in early June.

“I made three calls to people I had determined were relatives of our Martha H. Troeger,” said Gardner. “I was able to connect with one of them, Frederica Mathewes-Green, who lives in Baltimore. Her grandmother, Esther Viola Troeger Oetjen, was Martha’s sister. She is very excited about the find and wishes to acquire the gravestone on behalf of her family. She also has a sister who lives in Jacksonville, so this will likely be its next, final resting place.”

Gardner, along with Melody and David Shacter, made a presentation of the gravestone to the heirs on Saturday, June 17 at the TerraWise Homes model.

“Between completed homes and those currently under construction there are now over 30 TerraWise Homes in Springfield,” said Shacter. “Our office is also here on Main Street and we are proud to be a part of the revival of this great neighborhood and now to play a small part in the preservation of its storied history.”
