Groundbreaking at Verde

After more than two years of planning and design, Lawson Development and Construction Corporation along with RGS Associates and TONO Architects had the privilege of turning the dirt at the groundbreaking ceremony at Verde, the newest apartment community coming to downtown Hummelstown.

Verde was designed by TONO and land approvals and site engineering was completed by RGS. The new community will feature six three-story buildings consisting of one- and two-bedroom apartments along with recreational amenity spaces for its residents. This project will bring new life to what was once home to Verdelli Farms, a vegetable cleaning and packaging facility, which has sat vacant for a number of years. Lawson Development and Construction Corporation expects the construction to last approximately 24-months, with the first building ready for occupancy by summer 2014.
