Athertyn at Haverford Reserve Named Smart Growth Community of the Year

Athertyn at Haverford Reserve, the Main Line’s premier lifestyle community, has been named 2011 Smart Growth Community of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Chester and Delaware Counties (HBA).

The Smart Growth award recognizes the efficient and innovative use of land that guided every aspect of Athertyn’s design and construction, from the recycling of concrete and metal from the site’s previous structures to the use of energy-efficient materials and appliances throughout the newly constructed residences. Athertyn residents have wholeheartedly embraced our commitment to sustainable development, taking advantage of convenient areas for recycling separation and storage found in each residential building.

Set in the heart of the 209-acre Haverford Reserve, Athertyn offers convenient maintenance-free living in a beautiful parkside location less than two miles from the Haverford train station. Five miles of nature trails bridge the gap between natural and developed areas, connecting Athertyn with 120 acres of surrounding parkland and 45 adjacent acres of township environmental and recreational areas. Pohlig planned the placement of roads and buildings around existing trees and landscape features, and even the street lights and ornamental lighting fixtures throughout the community are specifically designed to reduce ambient light pollution.
