A client planned to redevelop an underutilized golf course site on an approximately 34-acre tract into a mixed-use community. The project would include a clubhouse, community open space, multifamily apartments, senior living facility, medical office, and ample pedestrian connections to nearby commercial and retail venues in the Borough of Sinking Spring. Challenges to this project included a constrained site, a short timeline for approvals, coordination with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to revise the floodplain, and permitting through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
RETTEW was selected to develop the site design because of our expertise in land planning and environmental permitting, planning, and compliance. Our experience in floodplain permitting enabled this project to proceed. Early in the project, RETTEW developed a concept site master plan to illustrate potential land development options and then worked with our client to finalize the design. Redeveloping this unused resource benefits the community by providing housing and leisure space.
