Harriton Farm Lower Merion Township, Montgomery County, PA

Preserving History and Embracing Innovation
Our firm’s comprehensive plan for the 55-acre Harriton Farm property seamlessly integrates seven historic buildings into a new development of 28 single-family homes, showcasing our commitment to preserving the rich heritage of Lower Merion Township while embracing modern living.

Preserving Sensitive Site Features
In addition to the innovative stormwater management solutions, our firm designed a significant open space system that preserves the most sensitive features of the Harriton Farm property. By carefully analyzing the site’s topography, hydrology, and ecological resources, we identified areas that required protection and incorporated them into the overall development plan.

The resulting open space network includes a mix of natural areas, walking trails, and passive recreation spaces that allow residents to connect with the outdoors and appreciate the beauty of the surrounding landscape. This approach not only minimizes the impact of the development on the environment but also creates a unique sense of place that is deeply rooted in the history and character of Lower Merion Township.

Seamless Integration of Old and New
Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the Harriton Farm project is the seamless integration of the seven historic buildings into the new development. Our team worked diligently to ensure that these valuable pieces of Lower Merion’s heritage were preserved and sensitively incorporated into the overall design.

By carefully positioning the new single-family homes in relation to the historic structures, we created a harmonious balance between old and new, allowing residents to appreciate the rich history of the property while enjoying the comfort and convenience of modern living.

The Harriton Farm project exemplifies our firm’s ability to craft development plans that respect the past, embrace innovation, and create vibrant communities. Through our expertise in stormwater management, open space preservation, and historic integration, we have delivered a project that sets a new standard for sustainable and sensitive development in Lower Merion Township.
