The September 19 ceremony coincided with the opening of the second release of homes at Pohlig’s Athertyn at Haverford Reserve, elegant lifestyle condominiums ranging from 1,800 to nearly 3,000 square feet. Throughout each home, Pohlig’s trademark craftsmanship and attention to detail bring the influence of classic Main Line architecture to this exciting, maintenance-free lifestyle community. In addition to Athertyn, Haverford Reserve will include 100 paired carriage homes built by a joint venture of The Goldenberg Group and Guidi Homes of Blue Bell, PA.

At the ceremony, builders Todd and Don Pohlig joined Haverford Township officials and representatives of the Goldenberg Group to lead tours of the residential and recreational areas of Haverford Reserve, including Pohlig’s Athertyn community. Arranged in six four-story buildings, Athertyn features concrete and steel construction and environmentally friendly design, with energy-saving amenities such as Low-E glass windows, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, and Energy Star appliances in every home. Throughout the site, natural stormwater management systems and sensitive land development practices protect the surrounding habitat from sedimentation, surface runoff, and erosion.

“The parkland surrounding Athertyn at Haverford Reserve will be as much a part of this community as the homes themselves,” said Todd Pohlig. “The site was designed around the existing landscape, even re-routing planned streets to accommodate existing trees and streams. Driving down Parkview Drive will feel like driving down an established park road lined with mature trees and plantings, and arriving home to a familiar neighborhood.”
