The Pinnacle at Plymouth Meeting
Plymouth Township, Montgomery County, PA
Nave Newell is working on the development of a new senior living community in Plymouth Township. Situated just off the Turnpike Interchange, the proposed project is a 4-story building with 210 units and 145 parking spaces. A challenging site for multiple reasons – regular and proactive communication with Township officials helped reduce the number of municipal reviews and the project timeline, leading to the successful execution of the engineering design.
Getting sewer to the site posed a challenge since it was far from any potential hookups. After considering options, the resulting design included a pump station and force main extension from Corson’s Lane to Chemical Road. Located in karst/limestone geology also prohibited infiltration and required a unique stormwater design. Our engineers worked closely with the Conservation District (CD) on a slow release design to enhance water quality while also meeting rate. A new concept and the first one reviewed by the CD. Two-rain gardens on the site utilize native plants to welcome wildlife and create a natural and aesthetically pleasing setting for residents.
Nave Newell secured all necessary approvals and the project is nearly completed and scheduled to open in Summer 2020.
