Rider Musser Development is proud to be a part of an exciting and community-beneficial development project that will not only provide beautiful, upscale apartment rentals, but will also create an economic lift for the Upper Allen Township and the Mechanicsburg region.
Oakwood Hills is a community development project located between West Lisburn, Mill and Quail Hollow Roads in Grantham, Pa., Upper Allen Township. Oakwood Hills will feature beautifully designed upscale apartment rentals, outdoor community spaces, and a boutique commercial area which will host businesses, restaurants and a hotel.
According to an economic impact study conducted by the Cumberland Area Economic Development Corporation, Oakwood Hills is estimated to create approximately 875 full-time employment positions and generate $41,561,852 in labor income.
The Oakwood Hills Development project is also projected to provide a significant amount of tax revenue specifically to Upper Allen Township.
One of the most coveted aspects of the Oakwood Hills Development project is the sense of community-belonging the completed indoor & outdoor structures will bring to Upper Allen Township.
Oakwood Hills will offer upscale amenities including a clubhouse for residents, salt-water pool area, walking trails, open spaces, and parkland interspersed throughout the entire campus. The clubhouse will contain a resident lounge, fitness center, cyber café, business center, and billiards/ game room. A concierge will provide such services as dry cleaning, and package delivery.
Other outdoor amenities include a deck area, fire place, grilling/ picnic areas, and dog park.
Any community development, construction project, or new building is a concern to residents in the area of that project. A way of life is threatened, inconvenience is a possibility, and questions arise: Will bright lights keep me awake? Will traffic be overwhelming? What provisions have been made to direct water away from me?
Oakwood Hills is a large development. We know that. But Rider Musser Development also wants all residents to understand these points as well:
• We are not a development company located in another city or state who is building a development here in this township to sell. We are a development company that actually lives on the land we are developing. We are building a community to own – hold – possess. Lots of thought and preparation has gone into this project, and steps have been taken all along the way to ensure that Oakwood Hills is developed in a sustainable, environmentally-sensitive, and non-intrusive way.
• Make no mistake: this is a large development project. There will be changes to this land, but the commitment of Rider Musser Development is that those changes will be of minimal disruption and/or inconvenience to Upper Allen residents. A great deal of attention has been paid to preserving green space, minimal traffic disruption, and improving the water run-off situation which has plagued some residents for many years.
• And our primary goal is that the resulting community we build will actually enhance the lives of Upper Allen township residents, and satisfy the concerns of all land owners and neighbors.
