Planning on Two Feet: Eat, Sleep, Play, and Work All Within a Short Walk!

June 19, 2017

Join Montgomery County Planning Commission for a tour of the Village at Valley Forge and see how a fully developed Main Street was created on a former Valley Forge golf course amidst a dense network of highways in King of Prussia. Located on 132 acres, the Village at Valley Forge is an excellent example of a successful town center mixed-use development with an urban design focus. This walkable community includes several innovative apartments, an active adult community, a Main Street with restaurants and outdoor cafés, various retail stores, a Wegman’s grocery store, stacked brownstone townhouses, the regional branch of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and plazas, trails, and open spaces all connected by sidewalks to encourage walking throughout the village.

The event, which will begin at the Indigo 301 apartments, will feature presentations from several speakers, including Dennis Maloomian, President of Realen Properties, developer of the site; Eric Goldstein, Executive Director of the King of Prussia District (KOP-BID); and Rob Loeper, Upper Merion Township Planner. Come along as we tour the Indigo 301 apartments and then travel outside to walk through this attractive and inviting village community that has been transformative for the King of Prussia area.

This event is being provided as part of Planning Smarter Montco 2017, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach, and corresponds to the Connected Communities theme contained in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County’s nationally awarded comprehensive plan.
