Look closely and you’ll notice that a Charter home looks and feels different than any other new home. From the large front porch to how the sun enters your kitchen to your laundry room layout, all of our homes are designed to feel larger, brighter and stand the test of time. We call it Living Design and every Charter home in Hastings will be designed with these 4 principles in mind.
In The Great American Neighborhood®, you can find a spacious single family home, a stylish loft townhome, and a first-floor maintenance free home all on the same street. But no two homes will ever be the same because we make it easy to personalize your new floorplan with modifications and details that fit you and your family best.
At Charter, we’re committed to supporting local businesses and creating new and different ways for neighbors to connect. Which is why in The Great American Neighborhood® in South Fayette, we will offer a place to shop, eat, workout and relax – all just a few steps from your front porch. We call it Crossroads at Hastings.
Take a drive through any Charter neighborhood and you’ll notice a theme - people spending time outside. Families are exploring TerraPark®, neighbors are mingling at mailboxes, and friends are catching up at Crossroads. That’s because The Great American Neighborhood® is designed to inspire people to connect with the outdoors, spend time together, and enjoy the land.
Location, location, location. Whether you’re new to real estate or a seasoned veteran, you probably know that a great location should be the number one consideration when selecting your new home. Things like school district, proximity to recreation and nature, scenic views and access to commuter routes can make or break the value of your home. That's why we have such high standards for the land we choose to turn into a Charter Neighborhood.
The first time we walked the future site of Hastings in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, we knew the natural beauty of the land, which had only grown more special over time, was the perfect canvas for what we do best at Charter Homes & Neighborhoods -
Some of the best stories told are about the places people live. The street they grow up on. The neighbors next door. The lasting connections made. This Summer, we’ll begin creating Hastings™, The Great American Neighborhood® in South Fayette, designed, on purpose, with the people who will live here in mind.
The first time Rob Bowman, President of Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, walked the Hastings site in Pittsburgh’s South Hills, he knew Charter Homes was the only one who could bring out the magic of the land. Nestled in a bend on Chartiers Creek, he could look through the century old trees and see nothing but wooded hillsides all around, which are all part of more than 600 acres of township parkland.
It’s an exciting day here at Charter Homes & Neighborhoods. As you might have read in today’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, we announced this week our move into the Pittsburgh region with the release of our plans for Hastings, a new neighborhood we are creating in South Hills. It’s an amazing opportunity that will transform a former state hospital into a neighborhood complete with preserved spaces, gathering places, walking trails, century-old trees, and timeless architecture.
