“Where walkable meets affordable” -The New York Times
Situated on the site of the former Peter Lumber on Haddon Avenue, The LumberYard is a major step forward in the history of Collingswood. The transformation of this four acre-parcel into a modern new center of residential and commercial activity represents Collingswood Borough's continuing commitment to lead by example when in comes to energizing and revitalizing America's older cities and towns.
Location, location location. The LumberYard image is centrally linked to Collingswood’s unique location to transit near Philadelphia (just a quick ten minute trip) and just footsteps from a vibrant downtown. The Brownstone setting gives the complex an urban feel while being surrounded by the luxuries of a suburban life; parks, excellent schools, safe streets and an engaged community. As the popularity of walkability and transit rise, so does Collingswood’s stock rise with potential homebuyers looking for an urban feel. Residents can walk to amenities in town and enjoy nightlife much like a city. It has the feel of a city in a surrounding which offers the appeal of community and a close-knit neighborhood. Living in The LumberYard is a unique experience for homebuyers looking for a special feel, something you can’t find in a cul-de-sac.
The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) featured The LumberYard at a 2007 conference in Collingswood. It held the development up as an example of growth with excellent neighborhood design bringing “back the sense of community, allowing residents to walk to work, shopping and transportation.” Through grids of streets, transportation choices and building placement, New Urbanism encourages designing appealing communities and destinations and allows for frequent encounters between citizens, in sharp contrast to sprawl.
The LumberYard was honored with a 2007 NJ Smart Growth Award for design principals in Mixed-Use Downtown Design. NJ Future focuses on protecting open lands, revitalizing neighborhoods and providing transportation choices.
