PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

D.L. Howell was hired to work with The Knabb Partnership to develop a pad site on the western side of the D’Ambrosio Auto Dealership Property located on Business Route 30 in Downingtown, PA. The chosen site would be for a Penn Liberty Bank branch location consisting of a 2,500 s.f. building with 2 drive-thru lanes and 18 parking spaces. D.L. Howell worked with the design team including; The Knabb Partnership, Architects and Orsatti Associates, Inc., Landscape Architects to give the bank a prominent appearance within the site and along Route 30 while preserving existing trees to protect adjoining residents. In the early stages of development, D.L. Howell worked with East Caln Township to obtain approval of Zoning Variances for signage, and Conditional Use for the building. After these were approved DL Howell worked with the Township Engineer and Township staff for Land Development approval. This included the design for an underground pipe storage and infiltration system intended to replace the existing above ground and manage stormwater for the bank and portion of the existing site. The project received Final approval in January and construction is scheduled to start in March.
