River Station, a residential and retail development project in Downingtown, is edging closer to completion, with phase one set to be done by November, writes Jen Samuel for the Daily Local News.
The first phase includes the construction of 203 apartment units and 10,000 square feet of retail space, according to Becky Reeves, vice president of operations at Exton-based Hankin Group, the developer of the project.
Half of that space has already been reserved for a restaurant, and Hankin is currently searching for a retailer to fill the remaining space.
The property is situated next to the future Downingtown Train Station and is comprised of close to 70 acres. Ground was broken last November.
The landscape of the property will include walking trails, an added benefit for those who decide to live there.
“We think that’s really important,” said Reeves. “It will be a huge benefit to the community.”
The apartments start at $1,800 per unit. They will be connected to the Chester Valley Trail, with a nature trail that will later be added through the woods to the property.
