Hip, Hip, Hipsturbia: A Revitalization of Meyer’s Building and Our Hometown


[rev_slider alias=”Meyer Renovations”]


We are loving our newly renovated digs!

As Meyer continued to grow we evaluated new real estate options, but in the end we decided to stay put and renovate our one-of-a-kind building. One of the major drivers for staying was our location – Ardmore, PA.  We are one mile from the city limits with our very own train stop, and according to Philadelphia Magazine, Ardmore has gotten it’s mojo back with breweries, whiskey bars, and local music halls opening throughout the town. We have taken it one step further and declared Ardmore’s revitalization a product of “hipsturbia.”

What is Hipsturbia? In 2013, the New York Times coined the word to describe the suburbs that were sought out by young creative professionals looking to leave the heart of New York City, but hesitant to abandon what they loved about an urban community. It is a community that replicates the convenience, walkability, and personality of urban life, with the affordability, space, and safety of suburbs.

So what does this mean to Meyer? It means bringing the convenience and style of a modern workplace into our home, the house at 227 E. Lancaster Avenue. This colonial revival mansion, built in 1897, is a rare survivor of the golden age of architecture, and it is just one of the many things we love about our hipsturbia.

What we love about being in Ardmore:

  1. Free parking 5 steps from our front door
  2. Shopping and eating at the ever evolving Suburban Square
  3. Drinks at Tired Hands, our local brewery
  4. More drinks at Ripplewood – the best throwback American whiskey bar
  5. Dinner at The Bercy – a modern take on the classic French brasserie
