Collingswood Mayor James Maley joined representatives from Ingerman on June 11 to celebrate the topping out of The Collings North, the second and final phase of Collingswood’s only transit-oriented, luxury apartment community, The Collings at The LumberYard.
Ingerman, a developer, manager and builder of multi-family apartment communities, is developing The Collings at the LumberYard to meet the region’s strong demand for luxury apartments near mass transit. A five-story, mixed-use building, The Collings North will feature 70 apartments, 12,000 square feet of ground-floor office space, 1,500 square feet of retail and the integration of numerous premium amenities for residents of both phases.
“It’s important that we recognize this important milestone in the history of the Lumberyard site,” stated Collingswood Mayor James Maley. “As the long-term vision for the site finally becomes reality, I applaud the commitment of everyone who has made this day possible — Ingerman, Borough employees and, most importantly, the citizens of Collingswood.”
Upon completion, The Collings North will feature 70 one- and two-bedroom apartment homes ranging from more than 800 square feet to almost 1,300 square feet. The residences will be pet-friendly, and feature gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops and full-size washers and dryers, as well as Energy Star appliances and generous closet space. As part of its ultimate lifestyle experience, The Collings affords residents access to multiple premium amenities, including an outdoor courtyard with grill, covered parking, common-area WiFi, community room and fitness center.
“Developing The Collings at the LumberYard has been one of the highlights of our company’s long and successful history,” said Brad Ingerman, President and CEO of Ingerman. “As we near the start of leasing for the final phase, we look forward to welcoming the large number of people throughout the region who desire upscale housing in Collingswood. Through our collaboration with Mayor Maley and all of the Borough’s officials and professionals, we’re happy to deliver smart, modern and luxurious apartment homes to the community.”
In addition to its well-appointed, maintenance-free residences, The Collings North will also feature Ingerman’s new corporate headquarters.
“Our decision to relocate our headquarters to The Collings is a testament to our commitment to the Borough and our new neighbors,” Ingerman said. “Collingswood is truly a one-of-a-kind destination community that offers an exciting living experience accented with first-rate restaurants, shopping and nightlife, as well as mass transit that puts the region’s major urban centers within reach.”
The Collings is located along Haddon Avenue, which was named one of the “Top 10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association, and is surrounded by an eclectic variety of shops, as well as the borough’s highly acclaimed “Restaurant Row.” A complete lifestyle experience is further enhanced by the community’s strategic location, which provides a 16-minute train ride into Philadelphia and easy access to New York City and Washington D.C.
The Collings South, the community’s fully leased first phase, comprises 34 apartment homes, featuring a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom designs, including seven townhomes with private entrances.
