Work is in progress for a 128-home development next to the Allenberry Resort in Monroe Township.

Mike Kennedy, owner of the Allenberry Resort, and his partners at Integrated Development Partners (Jonathan Bowser and Justin Kuhn) held a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday at the site for the proposed Porches of Allenberry project set for 65 acres of land in the Cumberland Valley School District.

IDP, located in Wormleysburg, is the developer on the project. The land was included when Kennedy purchased the Allenberry Resort in 2016.

Construction crews worked clearing trees and leveling dirt on the property Wednesday, and construction on the houses is set to begin in early 2019.

Homes will start around the mid-$300s with Design Build Custom Construction of Dauphin serving as the exclusive builder. 

The Jennifer Hollister Group, part of the Joy Daniels Real Estate Group in Hampden Township, will be marketing the community.
