Ellicott City (Sept. 7, 2005)- In
the 1980s, the Corps of Engineers of Anne Arundel County, were
concerned about the development of Piney Orchard and its impact
on the environment.
By working with the Corps and the County, Koren Development
Company found a way to satisfy all environmental concerns of the
regulatory agencies while also creating an environmental
sanctuary for the public
Two lakes were created which became the focal point for the
Piney Orchard Nature Preserve. This Preserve is a hiking and
biking mecca with areas of protected land. The result has become
an amenity that enhances not only the environment, but the
community as well.
Steven Koren, President and Founder of Koren Development
Company, is the visionary behind Piney Orchard and its Nature
Preserve. Koren Development respects the environment and uses a
consistent approach in developing all projects. As a result of
Koren’s creativity, he has been recognized numerous time
including, “Developer of the Year,” by the Land Development
Council of the Home Builders Association of Maryland. This award
recognizes a developer’s sensitivity to the environment and
excellence in design.
