MCHA, Pennrose Properties to Redevelop Public Housing Community in Pennsylvania

WILLOW GROVE, PA. — Montgomery County Housing Authority (MCHA) has partnered with Pennrose Properties to redevelop Crest Manor, a public housing community in Willow Grove that was originally built in 1963.

The $17.7 million revitalization includes rehabilitation of 15 of the existing two-story twin buildings, demolition of a two-story twin building with construction of a two-story building in its place, demolition of the existing maintenance facility and the construction of a two-story building in its place.

Upon completion the community will feature 15 renovated twin buildings, three newly constructed multi-unit buildings and one newly constructed community and maintenance building, all totaling more than 49,492 square feet. The redeveloped community will provide 46 affordable housing units, ranging in size from one- to five-bedroom floor plans. Wallace Roberts & Todd LLC are serving as architect for the project, and Harkins Builders is the general contractor.

The project was funded by Alden Torch Finance/JPMorgan Chase, low income housing tax credits allocated by Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA), PHFA PennHOMES, Montgomery County Housing Authority, Montgomery County Affordable Housing trust funds, Community Development Block Grant funds allocated by Abington Township, and Fulton Bank.
