Falling Leaf Fest Returns to Eagleview Town Center

October 4th, 2019

Exton, PA— September 24, 2019Eagleview Town Center’s popular event is back! Join a multitude of performing groups and crafters Sunday, October 6th for Falling Leaf Fest. The event is a day full of games, food, entertainment, and fun. Eagleview Town Center has also teamed up with Cure4Cam Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Regina Evans, co-founder of Cure4Cam, discusses the mission of their foundation, “We founded Cure4Cam to help with funding for childhood cancer research. When our son, Cameron, was being treated, we saw multiple adverse effects of current treatment on him and other patients. Although he did have a very aggressive form of leukemia, damage to his organs from the current therapies contributed to his ultimate passing. Cure4Cam’s mission is to help fund more targeted therapies which affect the cancer but not other cells in the body.” She also reflects on the history of this race, explaining, “Pedal4Cam, now in its 5th year, was started by a supporter who is an avid cyclist in order to reach out to a different group of people who were looking to support our charity in something other than a running race. Last year we added a 2 mile charity walk to again try to broaden the event.” The Ride ‘n’ Stride kicks off the event and check-in begins at 7:30AM.

After the Ride ‘n’ Stride, performances start promptly at 11:00AM. Over 45 crafters and performing groups will be in attendance. Restaurant Row, home to Al Pastor, Brickside, Bluefin Eagleview, Suburban Restaurant and Beer Garden, and Brightspot Café, will also be open.

Hankin Group Awarded Pair of Top Honors from Commercial Real Estate Industry

June 7th, 2018

Originally posted on VistaToday:

Hankin Group, a full-service real estate development and management company based in Exton, was recently honored with a pair of TOBY Awards, the most prestigious awards in the commercial real estate industry, at the Middle Atlantic Conference of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) at the Hyatt Regency in Buffalo, N.Y.

TOBY (The Outstanding Building of the Year) Awards are given for the highest quality in building design and unmatched excellence in building management. Industry professionals conduct an on-site inspection of the buildings, and judging is based on a range of criteria that includes:

  • community impact
  • sustainability
  • tenant/employee relations programs
  • energy management systems
  • accessibility for the disabled
  • building personnel training programs

Hankin Group earned a TOBY Award in two divisions: one for 707 Eagleview Boulevard, which captured the top honor for “under 100,000 square feet,” and the other for 505 Eagleview Boulevard, which took the top honor for “100,000-249,000 square feet.”

BOMA’s Middle Atlantic Region, better known as MAC or the Middle Atlantic Conference, is comprised of 16 local associations with a combined membership in excess of 3,500 members covering 11 states and the District of Columbia.

Hankin Group’s two buildings qualified for the Middle Atlantic Conference honors by first winning awards at BOMA’s Philadelphia Conference held last fall. Now, after having won TOBY Awards at MAC, 707 and 505 Eagleview Boulevard qualify for possible recognition at BOMA’s International Conference, to be held in late June in San Antonio.

The former, 707 Eagleview, is a four-story, class A building in Exton. The 83,000-square-foot building is an impressive business address that caters to every modern-day business need. The main lobby boasts a two-story atrium with stainless steel-wrapped columns, wood paneling, limestone floors, and a tranquil water feature. The second-floor lobby features a soft sitting area overlooking the fountain on the main floor, and the fourth-floor lobby features a large skylight and planted green wall. The parking area features a dual car-charging station. This Energy Star-rated building features solar panels that generate 12 percent of the building’s power usage.

The latter, 505 Eagleview Boulevard, is a five-story, 152,000-square-foot building that has LEED and Energy Star Certifications and is equipped with solar panels that supply 10 percent of the building’s power. Just inside the vestibule, you’ll notice a two-story glass wall at the far end of the lobby that forms a panoramic view of a 10-acre pond and wetlands area with resident wildlife. The interior lobby consists of a quarry tile floor, black marble two-story wall, and two black tile reflective pools. Outside the atrium is a patio seating area with umbrella tables, an exterior fountain, and landscaped gardens.

“While our company has always been known for treating our tenants and clients well, the performance of Hankin Property Management has reached a new level of capability and execution,” said Robert Hankin, CEO of Hankin Group. “I see it every day when I receive compliments about our organization and operations. I am really proud to be part of such an amazing team.”
