More homes, townhomes planned in growing Cranberry
Another development is proposed for Cranberry's rapidly growing housing market.
Township supervisors earlier this month approved plans for 21 single-family homes and 20 townhomes for the first phase of The Links of Cranberry, a residential development at Glen Eden and Freshcorn roads. The property is on the former Davis farm along Glen Eden.
“It's a hopping place,” said architect Dave Lucci of Victor-Wetzel Associates in Sewickley. “I guess everybody wants to live in Cranberry.”
Lucci said he expects groundbreaking on the first and second phases of the development for September, with completion set for spring of 2014. The second phase, if supervisors approve it within the next few months, would consist of 240 apartments. A third phase of the project would be another 16 single-family homes and 26 townhomes. All together, the development is expected to contain 323 housing units. The project also is expected to feature playgrounds and several ponds in the development.
As part of the project, the township is requiring developers to put in a roundabout at the intersection of Freshcorn and Glen Eden. PennDOT records show a daily traffic count of 2,000 vehicles on Glen Eden. The total cost of the development wasn't available.
