The goal of Ohio Vedic Homes, the first residential Maharishi Vastu community in Ohio, USA, is to create a health and recreation community that utilizes ancient principles of Vedic architecture. What sets the community apart, developers feel, is its pristine location and emphasis on Vastu design.
The 60-acre (24-hectare) property was purchased in 2006 after plans to buy just one lot did not work out. The piece of land was so ideal, featuring a large scenic lake and good Vastu characteristics, that 'it was decided to buy the whole property and build a model Maharishi Vastu neighbourhood with 25 lakefront and lakeview homes, all with water to the north and to the east,' said Jon Lipman, Vastu architect and director of Fortune-Creating Buildings. Location of water bodies is an important element in Vastu building site selection.
In the years since 2006, a great deal of work has been successfully accomplished. The planners secured financing for the project, and went through two years of negotiating to be able to alter the edge of lake so that it would run perfectly north-south. This way, all the properties could be lakefront and still be exactly oriented toward the east, a major principle of Maharishi Vastu architecture. It took another year to get approvals by the local county and state.
The site was master-planned with help from Fortune-Creating Buildings, Mr Lipman added, to ensure that the Vastu properties of the site and lots were up to standard.
In addition to the high Vastu standard, Mr Lipman said that the property is pristine. 'All of these lots have this beautiful, sweet spring-fed lake to their east and northeast.'
According to the Ohio Vedic Homes website, 'Our goal is to develop the land and lake as a model community for Sthapatya Veda (Vastu) architecture, making the proposed Lake O'Springs Village the third community built entirely with Vedic architecture in North America.'
