Welcoming New Residents Home to York Township
Wynfield at Fair Valley, Burkentine Builders’ first apartment complex, is a multi-family apartment and townhome development nestled on 21 acres in York Township. Located just south of York, off of the Leader Heights exit of Interstate 83, the location is close to major roadways, businesses, local colleges, and hospitals, making it convenient and affordable for commuters.
The Wynfield at Fair Valley development consists of 12 townhomes and 224 apartments spread across nine buildings. The land was previously home to a mobile park. It was converted to a multi-family apartment and townhome development as a means of adding additional new residences with updated amenities and recreational facilities to a township where residential housing growth has remained stagnant. This complex is one of the first new developments to contain more than 100 units in 11 years.
Zoning Management and Creative Site Design Were Needed to Overcome Obstacles
RGS helped Burkentine navigate the zoning complexities of an RH zone, Residential High-Density Zone, for the township to approve the development for multi-family use.
The size of the buildings and the existing steep site grades pushed RGS to be creative in our site design. The planning preserved the existing woodland stream corridor while terracing the improvements to minimize the height of retaining walls and provide a scenic view from the windows and porches of many of the units. Stormwater for the site was distributed across the site in a combination of aboveground and belowground infiltration and management facilities.
An Inviting Community Bringing More Homeowners to the Township
Wynfield at Fair Valley is now a walkable multi-family community with beautiful views and access to the preserved woodland stream. The clubhouse and pool sit near the entrance of the community to provide easy access for all tenants and create an inviting scene when residents and guests enter the development.
