The Yards at Malvern, formerly Frazer Lanes, officially opened last month and all those involved with the project were invited to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The final completion of the project started almost five years ago, and DL Howell was involved from the very beginning. GMH Communities, the property owner, initially approached DL Howell to prepare sketches for a 5-story apartment building with an attached parking garage on the properties occupied by the Norcini Trailer Park and Frazer Lanes Bowling Alley. The plan’s development required changes to the Township Zoning and a new district was created to allow for the use. DL Howell worked closely with the project team including Riley Riper Hollin and Colagreco Attorneys, Lessard Design Group Architects, Stuart and Associates Landscape Architects, and Traffic Planning & Design Traffic Engineers to refine the site layout and renderings after review and approval from East Whiteland Township Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors. Once approved, the plan moved into the construction phase, where D.L. Howell worked with Elford, Inc. General Contractors and their team of professionals. Construction continued for the next two years, and despite some challenges with sitework, highway improvement, utilities and a worldwide pandemic, the project finished right on schedule.

The outcome of all this hard work and dedication is a beautiful apartment building with all the modern amenities one could imagine. The complex offers a variety of apartment size options that provide studios, one and two-bedroom units, and deluxe suites. There is an open courtyard loaded with amenities that offer relaxation and entertainment. The building is complete with meeting spaces, a golf simulator, an exercise room, a pet grooming room, and a bar area. D.L. Howell was extremely honored to be a part of the development team and recognized for our efforts.
