The Story Behind Make a Difference Day

At Charter, we live and work by 10 Principles, one of which is “Make a Difference.” The definition under that Principle states “Things happen because of you, not circumstance. You know that your willingness to muster a few seconds of courage to take the right action or speak up can change the future for the better.”

The Homes at Hastings

We’ve taken special care to design a series of one-of-a-kind homes at Hastings that you won’t be able to find anywhere else in Pittsburgh. From Monogram Single Homes in the exclusive Preserve area of the neighborhood, to Special Edition Townhomes in the center of it all on Hastings Green, and low-maintenance first-floor living with Signature Single Homes in The Woods, you're sure to find your perfect new home at Hastings.

Living Design

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 is designed with these 4 principles in mind.

A Home as Special as You Are

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.

Connect At Crossroads

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® we will offer a place to shop, eat, workout and relax – all just a few steps from your front porch. We call it Crossroads.

Green Spaces & Gathering Places

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.

A Great Address in a Growing Community

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 free-range playground that makes your child smarter, healthier, and more confident

At Charter, we’re big champions of natural playgrounds, with green spaces and slides, amphitheaters, and secret nooks. Kids love them – and unlike modular playgrounds, they don’t get bored of them. Ours are called TerraPark®, and we build them into our neighborhoods to help foster a love of nature and imaginative play.

Like a Fine Wine, our neighborhoods grow better with time

Buying into a new neighborhood is always exciting. New home construction alleviates the worry of inheriting someone else’s headaches. And it offers one of the greatest luxuries in life. To buy new means enjoying freshly laid hardwoods; granite counters chosen by you; tasteful, contemporary cabinetry; and the latest and greatest systems and technology.

It’s Easy to Shop Small on Small Business Saturday

There’s nothing better than seeing a friendly face at your favorite small business for a cup of coffee, to grab a beer after witnessing one too many black Friday fist fights, pick up a thoughtful gift for a friend, or to sweat off some post-Thanksgiving pounds. So we’re going to make it easy for you to enjoy your favorite shops or find some new gems you haven’t visited yet.
