ZELIENOPLE — Glade Run Lutheran Services has unveiled plans to build a $30 million autism-friendly neighborhood next to its campus off Route 68.
Plans for Jeremiah Village contain a mix of housing options, including three apartment buildings with elevators and 16 multifamily and single-family homes. It is designed to be a walkable neighborhood with open green spaces, a public plaza and a multipurpose community center.
Sheila Talerico, executive director of the Glade Run Foundation, said the project is in the beginning stages.
“We are currently working on a plan and assembling documentation to present to the borough,” Talerico said. “Jeremiah Village's development is conditional upon the approval of the borough.
“If approved, construction on Phase 1 would begin in 2014, and all construction would be complete in 2016.”
The project is designed for two phases. Phase 1 will add 144 apartment units, one and two bedrooms. Phase 2 is the construction of 64 units in the form of cottages and townhomes.
