Wynnewood Seminary will transform into a ‘Modern Luxury’ Apartment
Renowned and historic Palmer Seminary will become a transit-oriented apartment complex with an outdoor movie pavillion, pool, 24/7 gym and business center very soon. After almost 72 years in Wynnewood, the Palmer Theological Seminary has vacated its property at the corner of Lancaster Avenue and City Avenue but interestingly, the spot won’t be vacant for long. According to Kevin Michals, who is a principal at the company, the seminary’s hall and chapel will be transformed into 132 apartments and the construction work will begin in October. Cross Properties has planned this. Michals has proclaimed that, “Our thesis is that there hasn’t been a new apartment complex on the Main Line in over 50 years.”
Most importantly, Cross Properties wants to bring a modern product to the Main Line. As Michals said, the apartments will include amenities like an outdoor movie pavillion, a yoga room and business center. According to him, a new, innovative apartment design “simply hasn’t happened in decades in what we think is somewhat of a starved area. According to the sources, the construction process will take near about 14 months, but at the end of it, the property will boast a set of brand new “modern luxury” apartments, with washers and dryers in every unit, hardwood floors, and extra large showers and closets. According to a plan provided by the Cross Properties, more than 40 units will include original historic fireplaces, and about 20 will include exterior balconies.
There will be a 24/7 fitness center with cardio equipment and a yoga room, a private pool, an outdoor movie pavillion with a projector, business centre and so on. There will also be a glass soundproof study rooms for small groups and individuals, private game room and a gourmet kitchen. Michals proclaimed that, the landmark building, which opened in 1922 as the Green Hill Farms Hotel, is now listed on national, state and township registers of historic buildings.
