Residential Development Projects in Chester County

Residential development projects in Chester County have not been slowed down by the pandemic. In fact, it’s been the complete opposite. Even tertiary markets are seeing a demand for housing. So, it seemed like a great time to provide an update on the projects that we currently have under construction.

Municipality: East Brandywine Township, Chester County, PA

Property Size: 41 acres

# of Units: 160 townhomes

Site Amenities: The community includes several acres of passive open space with a sidewalk and trail network, a community pavilion and recreational area.

Project Summary: Nave Newell is working with the client to develop this 41-acre site for a multi-family residential community including 160 townhouses. Nave Newell designed the site layout, road and alley design, stormwater management and Best Management Practices design along with landscaping and lighting concepts. The design incorporates existing historical structures on the property. Nave Newell worked with the Township and State to buffer the structures dating back to the early 1800’s from the new residences.

2021 Update: Phase 1 is currently under construction and our surveyors have been providing construction stakeout for the buildings. Here’s a recent picture taken while out on site.
