PHILADELPHIA-Narbrook Development, an affiliate of AMC Delancey Group, began construction of 333 Green, a residential development on Green Street in Philadelphia. The development will consist of seven townhouse-style residences and is scheduled for completion in mid- to late September. Although no construction prices were provided, townhomes will start in the high $500,000s.

Kenneth Balin, president and CEO of AMC Delancey, tells that part of what makes this project unique is the fact that the homes are constructed offsite in a modular fashion, which allows for more precision tooling and less waste as well as a home that was not exposed to the elements during construction. Modular construction will be done by Haven Custom Homes, an AMC sister company based in Linthicum, MD.

“The way the homebuilding business is evolving, a lot of the processes can be done much more efficiently and much better under cover offsite and then the pieces can be delivered to the site,” says Balin. “That minimizes fuel consumption, since instead of hundreds of trucks delivering materials, you have a few flatbeds delivering the house. Construction is faster, and there’s minimum disruption in the neighborhood.”
