The site is home to six residential buildings with 135 one- and two-bedroom apartments. The project also includes parking, a fitness center, multi-car garage buildings, sidewalk improvements, open space improvements and related infrastructure upgrades.

Bringing New Life to Verdelli Farms

This project brings new life to what was once home to Verdelli Farms, a vegetable cleaning and packaging facility, which has sat vacant for a number of years. VERDE serves as an excellent example of how private development can successfully revitalize a portion of an existing borough which was otherwise deteriorating and vacant. 2nd Street Realty Associates, LP worked closely with the Borough of Hummelstown, RGS Associates, TONO Architects, and Douglas Charles Phillips Architects to create a redevelopment plan that would fit into the existing fabric of the Borough of Hummelstown. The plan needed to fit the context of the neighborhood, meet local ordinance and stormwater regulations, as well as comply with all applicable environmental requirements that would ultimately impact the removal of the formerly blighted processing buildings.

Facilitating Connections to Secure State Development Grants

As part of the private development, the team worked with Hummelstown Borough to obtain a public improvement grant in the amount of $500,000 from the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development to support the cost burden associated with public infrastructure improvements necessary to implement the project.
