“To understand the innovation of Koren
Development, I invite anyone to spend an hour at Piney Orchard.
Koren Development is led by a visionary, Steve Koren. Three
county executives ago, when the development began, Piney Orchard
was a ‘pie in the sky’ concept, so ahead of its time in offering

thinks about the future, is such an erudite, knowledgeable

community, that they insisted the project be developed in the
right way. Because they know governmental policies and issues,
the engineers at Koren collaborate so well, making them
wonderful partners. We are fortunate to have a developer of the
visionary caliber of Koren Development. ”
