Residential & Retail Development


Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania

On the edge.

Introducing ARQ, Keystone’s next large-scale, mixed-use development in Bala Cynwyd, a prototypical “Edge City” where Philadelphia meets the Main Line. ARQ will create a town center, where every convenience is within a one block radius, fusing the vibrancy and ease of city life with a suburban setting.

Present tense.

ARQ will rise around One Belmont, an architectural icon situated atop Bala Cynwyd’s highest elevation and viewable from miles away. The most significant lease transaction in several years—Karr Barth at One Belmont—validated Keystone’s vision for the property. An aggressive capital improvement plan included a new roof terrace featuring unobstructed views of Philadelphia, a glass curtain wall with dynamic lighting features, and new elevators, chillers, roof, and HVAC systems, and cosmetic upgrades.

The big picture.

Poised at the gateway to the city, ARQ capitalizes on Bala Cynwyd’s reimagined zoning centered on densification, intensification, and mixing of uses.

Residential: Developed in partnership with national mixed-use developer, Bozzuto Group, the residences at ARQ are chic and high-end with contemporary architecture. Attracts several demographics, from young professionals to empty nesters, with a common thread—those seeking an engaged, community experience with walkable access to amenities.

Destination Retail: Curated retail spaces featuring users with local cache. Cafes, healthy fast-casual and high-end restaurants with outdoor dining. Boutique shops and small-format fitness. All anchored by a gourmet grocery store.

Public Gathering Space: Buzzing energy reminiscent of an Italian piazza featuring green spaces, vibrant landscaping and lighting, and curbless access roads that are closed to traffic on evenings and weekends for expanded outdoor dining, farmers markets, concerts, and other community events.
