Site work for Danley, a community of 28 new townhomes in Bryn Mawr, is slated to begin in June with the demolition of existing structures on the site. The existing garden apartments and two existing homes will be cleared to make way for an innovative land plan that combines 16 interlocking twins and 12 traditional townhomes that will be situated on the property. The project is located on Old Lancaster Road and South Merion Avenues, just west of the Bryn Mawr Hospital.
Construction of the new homes is slated to begin later this fall, with sales scheduled to begin in October. New homes are expected to start in high $400,000’s for these 3-bedroom, 2-1/2 bath townhomes with garages and off street driveways.

The February 2015 edition of Professional Builder recognized Arbor Mews as an exemplary demonstration of urban infill housing, noting: “After first-time buyers snatched up the 12 townhomes at Arbor Heights, built on a blighted city block, the neighborhood started to turn around. Now Progressive Housing’s owner and founder, Sarah Peck, is back with new designs and financing assistance for buyers.”
Arbor Heights, a new townhouse community in Norristown, received a 2013 Montgomery Award for successful redevelopment efforts, attractive infill affordable housing, collaboration, and community revitalization. This exceptional project, which has created an appealing, pedestrian-friendly residential community, has been a catalyst for Norristown’s continued revitalization efforts.
