Residential | THE LANWIN GROUP

Challenges Welcome

THE LANWIN GROUP CELEBRATES 40 YEARS BY ALWAYS BUILDING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX. BY KAT ZEMAN

P

hil Evans is an old-fashioned guy
with modern ideas. He believes
that a handshake seals the deal
and that promises matter. "In our
day and age, even when we shake hands,
we still need two pounds of paper for
contracts," he says. "But I think if you shake
someone's hand, it's a deal."
At the same time, he believes in innovative ideas and isn't afraid to enter new
territory or introduce unique designs when
it comes to construction. As founder and
managing partner of The Lanwin Group,
Evans pushes his company to build outside
of the box.
"We are not a cookie-cutter builder," he
says. "We like doing different things, facing
challenges and coming up with creative
ideas. We always ask ourselves, 'How can we
do it better?'"
Cornwall, N.Y.-based Lanwin Group,
celebrating its 40th anniversary this year,
is a privately-held real estate development,
construction, investment and advisory
services company. It has experience in
planning investment opportunities and
developing real estate for residential and
mixed-use projects.
Lanwin is organized as a group of companies that have varying levels of expertise in
the areas of real estate investment and bank
advisory services, land assemblage, bid
sales, municipal approvals, real estate man-

agement, sales and marketing, construction
and project management.
The company is closely affiliated with
Olympia Development Companies, Club
Specialists International and Meridian Property Services. In New York, it builds under the
name Lanwin Olympia. Aside from Cornwall,
it has an office in Hopewell, N.J.

Outside the Box
One of Lanwin Group's earliest projects
was a ground-breaking subdivision in
West Windsor, N.J. Although built in
the 1980s, it's a perfect example of how

the company brought a novel idea to a
community that was initially resistant to
change. In the end, Evans says even the
local mayor called him to thank him for a
unique addition to his community.
But it stated as an uphill battle. The
planned unit development Lanwin Group
proposed was outside of the cookie-cutter
subdivisions that peppered the region. "This
type of development is common in other
parts of the country like Florida, Arizona
and Texas," Evans says. "But it's not very
common in the Northeast. We had to get
like 25 to 30 zoning variances for it."
