On Wednesday, June 25, officials and representatives of Jersey Central Management officially broke ground on a long-awaited addition to Lynnewood Gardens Apartments: a 10,000 square-foot-plus clubhouse that will serve the centerpiece of the suburban Philadelphia community.

Dozens of longtime residents, some of whom have lived at Lynnewood Gardens for more than three decades, gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking, which Property Manager Yitz Moller hailed as the latest in a series of “constant and consistent improvements” at the 1,800-unit property.

Since acquiring Lynnewood Gardens in 2007, Jersey Central Management has invested $4 million in upgrades to the property, including fully refurbished apartments with all-new cherry kitchen cabinets; energy-saver appliances; new tile bathrooms; improved color-coordinated building facades and roofs; enhanced property signage; a renovated courtyard; a new laundry center; and more.

The new clubhouse, slated to open in spring 2015, will feature a spectacular great room where residents and guests can gather and relax; an outside porch with fireplace; a spacious, cutting-edge fitness center; an internet café; as well as ample conference space.

In keeping with Lynnewood Gardens’ existing architecture, which blends traditional colonial elements with modern conveniences, the new community center will feature a classically inspired entry portico, gabled roof, and banks of windows to take advantage of the park-like views.

“It is momentous for us and a must for our residents to have a place to convene and congregate, a place that will nurture a community feeling,” said Moller. “This modern community center will fit right into our master plan.

“We want to make Lynnewood Gardens Apartment a very happy home for everybody,” said Osher Perlow, Vice President of Jersey Central Management, “and a place you love to live.”
