A new multifamily community could soon rise on about 21 acres in North Fayette Township.

According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, Cleveland developer NRP Group is planning to build the 295-unit project on a site close to the IHOP restaurant and the Montour Trail. The property is owned by Forest City Enterprises, also of Cleveland, which is developing the nearby Mall at Robinson.

Although still in the early planning stages, NRP’s new residential development is set to include a mix of rental townhouses, garden-style apartments, as well as more traditional units in three- and four-story buildings.

Laura Ludwig, development director for the Parkway West community, told the newspaper that the project would now go through the township approval process.

The NRP Group is also developing the 319-unit Ascent 430 apartment complex in Warrendale, which is expected to be complete by next spring. The property’s amenities will include a clubhouse with an expansive community center, business center/conference rooms, as well as a 24-hour fitness center, a resort-style swimming pool, picnic areas and outdoor grills, walking trails, wireless internet access throughout the clubhouse and outdoor amenity areas, and a variety of parking options.

Founded in 1995, the NRP Group is a full-service multifamily developer, general contractor and property manager. In 2009, 2012 and 2014, the company was recognized as Multifamily Development Firm of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as part of the association’s Multifamily Pillars of the Industry Awards. This year, the developer also received a 2014 Pillar Award for Best Garden Community Belleza at Cresta Bella in San Antonio (pictured), an upscale property with 288 units.
