For decades, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia maintained these 213-acres largely as undeveloped land, using 38 acres for Don Guanella Village.
Our plan to redevelop the Don Guanella site will preserve 95% of the existing undeveloped land.
That’s 166 acres preserved as green space – managed forever…
Our plan develops only an additional 9 acres, which is necessary to fund the permanent preservation of the rest of the property for passive and active recreation, without raising residents’ taxes.
While the current zoning permits a number of land use options including institutional and residential uses, our sincere hope is to build The Town Center at Marple Preserve and create a powerful source of good for the community.
We look forward to your support.
