Behind the wall of sycamores, oaks and pines adjacent to the Wynnewood train station, a new 250-unit apartment building, the Maybrook, is now welcoming its first residents. Built by IMC Construction, Maybrook is a four-story, 345,000-square-foot luxury apartment community of one-, two- and three-room units near shops and transit.
“The building materials were high-end inside and out,” said Robert Cottone, president of IMC Construction. “We built for residents who value comfort and elegance, a natural setting and walkable community.”
Maybrook units range from 727 to 1839 square feet and feature quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood floors, walk-in closets and full-size washer-dryers. Amenities include a two-story fitness center, cyber lounge, clubroom, swimming pool, paddle tennis courts and an adjacent 464-space parking garage.
The community sits on 28 acres of the 44-acre Maybrook estate with a celebrated 1881 Scottish-style mansion, carriage house and several out buildings. Unused for decades, the historic mansion and grounds will be restored and renovated to serve the Lower Merion community as a special events site. A dog park and upgraded walking trails to nearby Narberth are part of the landscape design, as is restoring the original Japanese garden and grounds.
“This is a carefully-sited, sustainable, smart-growth project with extensive strategies for storm-water management, traffic control, and deep setbacks from the road,” said Cottone. “It has been a pleasure to work with Jefferson Apartment Group and Haverford Properties on this forward-thinking development.”
Maybrook is a joint venture among Jefferson Apartment Group, Haverford Properties Inc. and Lowe Enterprises Investors. The design team includes KTGY Group Inc. architect; Momenee Inc. civil engineer; Environetics MEP engineer; and Alliance Engineers structural.
