Lansdale Apartments is a large-scale, mixed-use development with garden-style walk-up apartments in downtown Lansdale, PA. The design intent was to create a transit-oriented development adjacent to the Lansdale train station featuring amenities such as restaurants and retail to attract Philadelphia commuters to Lansdale. One large urban plaza to host festivals and community events is created by combining an existing plaza with a new one directly adjacent to it. A pedestrian friendly thoroughfare runs through the space, and bike lane connects to a larger network of bike paths for both recreational and commuting riders. The project boasts 182 apartments, excellent resident amenities, and over 13,000 square feet of retail space.
A development of this magnitude and with a prime downtown location will give a big boost to Lansdale's revitalization efforts. It aims to aid in community and economic development by creating jobs and giving residents the ability to walk to amenities and easy access to public transportation; a trend that sees continued growth throughout the Philadelphia area.
