A beautiful $2 million amenity center is the crown jewel of Merion at Midtown Park.

Where can you find a new home inside the loop for less than $500,000? No, this isn’t a trick question. It’s nigh impossible, and if you want a new build, be prepared to wait as most homes are taking ages to go from teardown to move in.

Starting at a grass-roots level, I want to do something about it.
