Bryn Mawr Site Work to Start Soon

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.

Sarah Peck of Malvern-based Progressive Housing Ventures LLC has been
awarded Pennsylvania Builders Association’s Building Innovation Award in recognition
