On Wednesday, Aug. 9, Columbia Montour Chamber president Fred Gaffney joined a handful of other local business leaders to break ground on Phase Two of Jacob’s Landing, presented exclusively by Villager Realty, an upscale community of luxury townhomes adjacent to the Susquehanna River in Danville. This second phase will add a total of 16 new housing units to the already-existing 12 townhouses in the development. The new units will consist of eight brownstone units and eight riverfront condominiums in a total of three buildings. The contractor for the project is T-Ross Brothers Construction and the architect is ArchCentral Architects

Located on the north shore of the river, Jacob’s Landing enjoys spectacular views of the river from every one of the new condos. Downtown Danville is a five-minute walk and Geisinger Medical Center is just a five-minute drive away.

“The continued development of Jacob’s Landing will help the continual improvement of the character of Danville and provide an additional much-needed housing option for people in the area,” said Gaffney.

“We are very excited about going forward with this project,” said Tim Karr, president and CEO of Villager Realty. “We are just replicating what you already see on this site from Phase One.”
