CHALFONT, PA — J.G. Petrucci Company, Inc. hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for the Patriot Station at Chalfont in Chalfont, a new luxury apartment community. Several local officials were on hand at the event including Mayor Marilyn Becker; Pennsylvania Senator Chuck McIlhinney; John Engel, President of the Chalfont Borough Council; and Pennsylvania State Representative Kathy Watson.
“Today marks a major step in the revitalization of Chalfont’s downtown. A new building will replace the original 1905 Patriotic Sons of America building. The historic St James Church will be preserved, along with all of its beautiful stained glass windows, as the structure is transformed into a new restaurant,” said Engel. “I would like to thank J.G. Petrucci Company for working with us and helping to make this transition a success,” he added.Expected to open in Spring of 2017, the Patriot Station at Chalfont will feature 69 one- and two-bedroom luxury apartment units complete with modern amenities including stainless steel kitchen appliances, Quartz countertops, and full-size washers and dryers in each unit. The complex will also feature ample on-site surface parking and a state-of-the-art fitness center.In anticipation of this new development, J.G. Petrucci Company, Inc. and the Borough of Chalfont have made significant capital improvements to the area including a new traffic signal at Main St. and Park Ave.; roadway and sidewalk improvements; and upgrades—including the installation of ADA-compliant ramps.
“We worked closely with Chalfont officials to bring a development to the borough that will complement its existing buildings and infrastructure—it has been a great pleasure to work with the entire team,” said Greg Rogerson, principal of J.G. Petrucci Company, Inc. “Bucks County, as a whole, is experiencing a significant amount of new development, and we are excited to be a part of its expansion,” he added.
Located within walking distance to the Chalfont train station—which is served by the Lansdale/Doylestown Line—the Patriot Station at Chalfont, is the first new ground-up development in the borough for several years. Designed by award-winning architects, Minno & Wasko, the building will incorporate a modern design that is in keeping with old style architecture of many of the old Victorian buildings still found in the borough today.
