Rebranded by Larken Associates as The Reserve at Wyomissing, the company will seek to transform the newly acquired real estate property into the latest piece of the company’s growing portfolio of premier residential communities across New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

With construction to be overseen by Core Enterprises, Larken Associates’ in-house construction management team, Larken Associates’ capital improvement plan will enhance the existing community amenities through renovations to the lobbies, vestibules, leasing office, hallways and common areas. Additionally, Larken Associates will add lounge and game rooms in both buildings as well as finished laundry rooms. The exterior façade will also be renovated along with other aesthetic upgrades throughout the property.
