Facility reuse plan
NAS JRB willow grove, horsham, Pennsylvania
RKG Associates recently completed a reuse master plan for a 892-acre site located in Horsham, PA, approximately 2 miles from the Pennsylvania Turnpike. RKG Associates led a national planning and design team through a 14-month redevelopment planning process. The property, a former Naval Air Station, was recently decommissioned by the Department of Defense and the Township wanted to consider the property’s potential to support a new mixed-use development anchored by a town center development. RKG researched a number of reuse opportunities including residential, office and R&D, hotel/conference center, retail, congregate care community and an aviation museum.
The planning process also considered the impacts to local affordable housing and homeless service providers. The final plan included a 70-unit development dedicated to providing homeless housing for high risk individuals and families.
