Mignatti Companies Offers New Urban Village Lifestyle on the Riverfront


BENSALEM, Pa. – There is a growing trend of “urban lifestylers” who are looking for a new home with city appeal, but who do not want to be within the city itself. Convenience to shopping and dining, as well as an easy commute and a rich sense of neighborhood and place making all play an important role in their new home search.

Mignatti Companies, a local homebuilder established for more than 100 years, is offering just such an opportunity at its Waterside community in Bensalem. Tagged “your new urban village,” Waterside offers a city lifestyle of 2- and 3-bedroom townhomes with interesting architecture, floor plans you can actually live in, rear-loading garages and streetscapes that will pull you down to the river’s edge. Waterside will become a small city in and of itself, where residents will be able to walk to the corner store, retail shops, and a riverside restaurant – or, they can enjoy an al fresco lunch in the 8-acre riverfront park.

Waterside blends this urban community plan with a village appeal that the home builder, Mignatti Companies, excels at creating. Mignatti is known for building large “lifestyle” communities that offer opportunities for relaxation or recreational activities to extend the sense of community beyond the walls of the home itself. The Huntingdon Valley based company planned and built the Golf Club Estates luxury golf course community as well as the Heritage Creek active adult community, both located in Warwick, Bucks County. Those two communities combined have over six hundred homes. Mignatti’s Heritage Point community in Barnegat, NJ has over nine hundred homes.

Waterside itself will have over six hundred homes and has taken the idea of place making a step beyond the typical townhome community. While some Waterside townhomes will feature a rooftop terrace or a front porch, others may offer a balcony or bay windows, creating a distinctive streetscape where no two homes look exactly the same. This walkable neighborhood is designed with gardens, pocket parks, mews and social gathering spaces which will encourage residents to reclaim a sense of community.

A selection of townhomes is currently available at Waterside starting in the mid $200s. Groundbreaking is days away and pre-construction pricing is being offered for only a limited time. Interested homebuyers are encouraged to make a personal appointment to visit the Sales Center on Waterside Pier, which is open daily.

Waterside is located at the perfect convergence of easy highway and transit access. The Cornwells Heights regional Septa/Amtrak station is 1/2 mile away. I-95 is right around the corner and Route 1 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike are a few minutes further. Waterside is just fifteen miles from Center City and the community is ideally situated for those home buyers who crave the idea of an urban lifestyle without actually living in the city.
