Madison Marquette and Canuso Communities have teamed up to develop Richwood, a 370+/- acre community that includes over 1,200 homes and up to 1.2 million SF of retail and office space. MRA is working hand in hand with the Madison/Canuso partnership in developing the overall master plan and securing the necessary regulatory entitlements.
Several innovative ideas have been incorporated into the master plan that will help consumers maximize livability, while minimizing costs. These include creating a partnership with the local school district, focusing on sustainability for both the development and buildings, and providing amenities that all can enjoy for little to no cost. Collectively these elements will provide Richwood with a strategic market advantage to attract buyers and tenants.
Richwood has incorporated several green and sustainable development principles from the outset of the planning process. Beginning with the density of the development, with 1,200 homes and over 1 million square feet of non-residential space on +/- 370 acres, the property is being effectively utilized for the growing populace of the Country, the greater Philadelphia region, and the Harrison Township market place. Next, the master plan is based on traditional neighborhood planning principles with an interconnected street network that ties all of the uses together in a walkable community. Finally, both LEED New Construction and the new Homebuilders ANSI standards are being considered for all new vertical (building) construction.
