The Cynwyd

Five-Story, 205-Apartment Community with Pool and Rooftop Terrace

The Cynwyd is a five-story, 205-unit multifamily community in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. The project consists of a two-story concrete podium below five stories of wood framing. During construction, the team installed 70 micropiles on the site's north elevation to mitigate unstable soil. The Cynwyd's ample amenities package includes an interior courtyard with a swimming pool, dog run, clubroom, game room, and fitness center, and a rooftop terrace with views of the Philadelphia skyline. The project's studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments include granite countertops and brushed nickel fixtures.
