Dave Falcone recognized for his role in restoration of Louella House

David J. Falcone has been honored with the William H. Bates 2013 Innovative Land Development Award for his work on the restoration of Louella House in Radnor Township.

Mr. Falcone, special counsel in the Real Estate Practice, was instrumental in obtaining zoning and land development approvals in Radnor Township for the renovation of the historic Louella House in downtown Wayne.  He, along with fellow members of the project, received the award February 20, 2014 from the Delaware County Planning Commission.

Built in 1865, Louella House is a large Victorian Style, Second Empire building in Wayne, PA.  It was bought in 2011 by Cas Holloway, a Wayne real estate developer who wanted to transform the then 25-unit apartment building into 12 luxury condominiums.

The finished project includes an attached underground 24-car parking garage, which features a green-roof that was developed into a Victorian Park.

The Bates Award, named in honor of the Delaware County Planning Commission’s  previous chairman, is given for outstanding land development projects that use innovative land techniques and practices in accordance with modern and evolving principles of site planning and development.
