Lindy Communities, a fourth-generation family Housing Provider, has provided quality apartment living since 1939!  Lindy Communities’ mission is the Resident Experience.  Lindy Communities also prioritizes addressing our shared carbon footprint impact,  community commitment and civic engagement.

In 1933, Jacob and Freeda Lindy, entered property management. With a bad heart and unable to secure Life Insurance for his family, as an alternative to Life Insurance, Jacob D. Lindy built Sedgwick Gardens, a West Mt. Airy luxury apartment community.  More than 80 years later, the Family continues to offer Sedgwick Gardens living.   

 

By 1961, second generation, Lindy Brothers, Philip Lindy, and brothers Alan and Robert constructed over 2000 new homes. Over sixty years later,  both Westgate  Arms and Olney Plaza living continue as a Lindy Community.  During the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s Philip and wife, Annabel, expanded Lindy Property Management throughout Philadelphia and surrounding counties.  

We have built a reputation for excellence on a foundation of integrity and quality of service.

In the 1980’s third generation Frank and Alan joined, followed by sister Elaine.  Houses services  soon extended to new construction (The Enclaves in Center City South), Student Housing (YoNo and Academia Suites), senior lifestyle housing at The Yorkhouse, the 100 plus acres of Meadowbrook Club Community, and the Towers at Wyncote, Pennsylvania’ largest high rise apartment community. Recent times enjoyed to joining of a 4th generation, with Jacob and Jeremy,  services to Florida’ West Coast including  the  new communities of Addison at Tampa Oaks,  Iris at Northpointe, plus, Center City Dayton’s,  The View of Dayton Towers.

Each community is renovated, and furthered enhanced  every year after.  Today, Lindy Community serves as Philadelphia’ premier Housing Provider in its Northeast, Center City South, Mt. Airy and Germantown, Oak Lane and Logan.  Additionally, the Family offers the most prominent apartment living in the Philadelphia suburban communities of Warrington, Cheltenham, Abington, and Jeffersonville/Norristown, plus, Dayton, Ohio.
