SADSBURY PARK, Sadsbury Township, Chester County, Pa.

Arcadia is pleased to announce that Sadsbury Park has been recognized by the Delaware Valley Smart Growth Alliance jury as a good example of smart growth development in the region. It is the first Greenfield proposal to receive this honor.

“Sadsbury Park reflects the criteria for true smart growth – location; density, design and diversity of uses; transportation and accessibility; environmental issues; and community assets and participation,” said John B. Rosenthal, DVSGA Jury Chairman and Chairman Emeritus of Pennrose Properties.

Sadsbury Park is a Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND) proposed for a parcel within walking distance of historic Sadsburyville, at the intersection of Old Wilmington Road and Lincoln Highway (Business Route 30) west of Coatesville. The project will encompass 461 homes – a mix of 174 rear-access single-family detached; 78 front-access single-family detached; 140 rear-access townhomes, and 69 multi-family homes, with a total net density of 6 units per acre. The TND features a grid street system, homes with garages in the back, a sidewalk and trail system, and creatively-designed opened spaces for recreation. Housing prices are expected to be among the most affordable in Chester County. The developer is Arcadia Land Company.

The Delaware Valley Smart Growth Alliance (DVSGA), a new non-profit collaboration of more than 100 government, private sector and non-profit organizations in the tri-state region, recognizes development proposals that comply with established smart growth criteria. Projects that receive DVSGA recognition are those that will foster regional growth and redevelopment in a manner that achieves important economic, environmental and quality of life objectives. By highlighting the potential of smart growth projects to add value to the region, the DVSGA hopes to encourage developers, business organizations, citizen groups and elected officials to strive for smart growth solutions.
