The plan for a Laurel Communities housing development along Franklin Road was given final approval by Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors at its meeting on June 1. Laurel Communities describes itself as a developer of luxury neighborhoods in Pittsburgh’s premier locations marked by attention to detail and innovative design. Other projects by the company include housing in Lawrenceville, Bakery Square, Ross and Pine Township. The Cranberry housing plan, called Laurel Pointe, will have two phases. Three different types of housing are visualized including large estate homes, mid-size family homes, and compact villas, each of which will be surrounded by land owned and maintained by the company. Other details of the PRD include a trail system, multiple parklets, streetscape enhancements, and a new left turn lane on Franklin Road. Earlier action on the proposed plan had been deferred to provide time for the analysis of an associated wastewater pump station placement.
