Last week, Hankin Group received the 2019 West Whiteland Township Historic Preservation Award. This honor recognized Hankin’s restoration of Ivy Cottage, which is located on West Lincoln Highway, adjacent to the company’s Keva Flats apartment community. Hankin Group restored the cottage, originally built in 1799 by the Thomas Family, and converted the space into two apartments. The residential building is now referred to as The Chandler House, a homage to the name of the family that most recently resided in the notable household. Hankin Group credits Robert Powers & Associates for helping to maintain the historical integrity of the home, Al Walton and his team for insuring the flawless execution of the construction, Laura Maiale for her work on the stunning residential design, and the entire team at Hankin Group for their support and excitement about this unique project.

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.”

Hankin Group sets sights on new apartments in Exton

November 20th, 2017

Hankin Apartments is developing Keva Flats, a 21-acre, five-building community that will contain 240 units on Business Route 30 just west of Route 100.

Hankin Group is working on its latest apartment project in the Downingtown-Exton area and plans to have it open for occupancy in August.

Hankin Apartments, headquartered in Exton, is developing Keva Flats, a 21-acre, five-building community that will have 240 units on Business Route 30 just west of Route 100, between Whiteland Towne Center and Otto’s Mini car dealership.

The styling of the new apartments “blends natural materials with floor to ceiling windows, bold angles and open floorplans,” the company announced in a recent statement updating the project.

In addition, the apartments will feature modern finishes such as quartz counters, tile back splashes, plank flooring and Grohe faucets.

Designed by the international architectural firm Norr, Keva Flats will mix one- and two-bedroom units and will include covered parking. The project’s final price tag will be about $60 million. The buildings will be four stories over parking areas.

Michael Hankin, chief operating officer, and Rebecca D. Reeves, vice president of operations at Hankin Apartments, said the development will be walkable.

A sidewalk will go along Lincoln Highway to connect Keva Flats to the Whiteland Town Center. There will also be a sidewalk along Waterloo Boulevard to meet up with Miller Park. Eventually, the developers hope to link the sidewalks to the Chester County trail system.

Millennials and residents moving from single-family homes are the likely market for the apartments that will rent for $1.365 to $2,450 a month, Hankin and Reeves said in an interview last week.

The apartment market in the Exton area is hot right now but, Hankin pointed out, “we’re first in line.”

“It’s a real shift in living preferences,” Hankin said of the trend toward apartments. Millennials with added school loan debt aren’t ready to invest in housing as early as preceding generations, while many Baby Boomers are interested in getting away from home ownership maintenance responsibilities, he noted.

There are 1,000 rental units expected to go online in the Exton-Downingtown area in the next five years, Reeves said.

Another reason for the popularity of apartments?

“There’s not as much of a supply in Chester County of affordable new houses,” said Hankin.

Keva Flats will include a clubhouse with a coffee bar, business lounge and a multi-sport simulator. It also will have a fitness center and yoga studio, a private dining room, a club room with demo kitchen and a rooftop terrace with fire pits, grill and seating. There is a sport court that offers basketball, tennis and volleyball. Adjacent to the sport court will be an outdoor pool with grilling stations. Dogs will be welcome, too, the developers said.

“This is an exciting project for us,” Reeves said. “At Keva Flats, our goal is to develop a sense of place and simplify life.”

The Hankin Group is also busy in nearby Downingtown. It has acquired 68 acres at the intersection of Boot Road and Route 322 (Brandywine Avenue) on the former Sonoco property. It plans to build 442 apartments atop 14,200 square feet of retail space there.

The approved conditional use application for that development includes a mixed-use transit oriented development at the site of what officials hope will be the new Downingtown Amtrak/SEPTA Train Station, according to a recent report in the Daily Local News.
