Size 173,000 SF Located in the heart of the Landis Homes campus in Lititz, PA, the new Learning and Well- ness Center and Crossings Apartments provide a “front door” to the existing senior living community. While High Construction wraps up the final phase of construction, most of the facility is completed and in use. At the hub, a four-story building features a pool, exercise space, bistro, salon, pharmacy, bank, auditorium, and a classroom. Apartments are also located in the center, as well as in the two three-story wings, adjacent to the center. All 79 of the “hybridized” apartments—which are much more livable than a traditional apartment design—are sold.

Size: 181,000 SF IMC is constructing a new residential community for seniors on the Main Line, the Bright- view Devon. In close proximity to shops and public transportation, the facility will contain 171 units from independent to assisted living to memory care, as well as a theatre, fitness center, multiple dining venues and a rooftop healing garden. IMC’s relationship continues with the Brightview in Wayne, NJ.

Torcon’s project at Villanova University will revitalize an expansive parking lot into a vibrant campus hub featur- ing Gothic-style student housing, University-operated stu- dent-centric retail, a parking garage and pedestrian bridge. The six interlinked buildings – connected by arched pas- sageways surrounding open courtyards – will house more than 1,100 undergraduate students, as well as a parking structure for 1,200 vehicles. Innovative green measures will be incorporated through- out construction, including LEED certification of the new residential buildings. With completion of all components anticipated for this summer, the multi-phase project will visually transform the university’s campus along Lancast- er Avenue while enhancing the overall Villanova student experience.

This 470,000 s/f mixed-use development located at 12th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue will feature 984 beds, best-in- class amenities, and panoramic views of the Philadelphia skyline. Upon completion of this second and final phase of development, this resort-style student housing community will provide more than 1,800 beds and 40,000 s/f of retail, restaurant and commercial space serving Temple Univer- sity’s growing undergraduate, graduate and international student population.

Size: 112,555 SF This project was a private-public partnership between Kean University and The Michaels Organization. A new 6-story, 112,555 s/f student housing community, this residence hall includes 384 beds and a total of 104 units. The project fea- tures a 2,000 s/f “Bistro” and various other student amen- ties, including a great room, food prep area, business center, game room, laundry room, and lounges and study rooms on each floor. The project was completed in July of 2018, which provided time for the university to manage occupan- cy and move-in preparations for the start of the 2018-19 academic year.
