About the Builder

Main Street Development starts with vision, then we let craftsmanship bring out soul.




You can’t teach taste. But, if you’re lucky enough, you can find a developer that has taste in his DNA. Introducing Glenn Falso, the vision of Main Street Development.

Glenn Falso and Main Street Development hit the check boxes for trust, integrity, service and communication. Then comes a time where development transcends to the world of craft and art. Mixing contemporary and modern styling, Main Street Development draws inspiration from cutting edge home trends and traditional Philadelphia architecture.

“We don’t think about development like construction. Main Street Development starts with vision, then we let craftsmanship bring out soul.”

-Glenn Falso

Main Street Development has been building Philadelphia-area properties for more than 20 years, with a solid style portfolio and list of loyal customers.

Go Urban

City or Suburbs? You Get Both.




Go Urban and Go Home.

It’s all about access. Access to culture, dining, recreation, and entertainment. Access to major roads. Main Street Development gives you the VIP pass to all of that as you go urban. You are in the city, yet out of the center. So close, yet so quiet. You live on the top with unparalleled views of the city skyline; a quiet neighborhood with excitement down the hill. “It is all downhill” never sounded better. There you will find the excitement or quiet you crave: a major park system with a 130 mile off-road trail to bike, hike, kayak, run or walk on; top restaurants; art festivals; cycling races; shopping, and more. The heart of Center City Philadelphia boasting world class museums, historic landmarks, restaurants, theater, and innovate art is within 15 minutes.

A nationwide shift to go urban is increasing – simplify and make your footprint mean more. Suburbia used to be the baromter for success – a larger home, more land. Those going urban want unique experiences. A quality life in a home that reflects their tastes. Our society is growing older and younger at the same time. Empty nesters raised a family and are now ready to have fun. People being relocated to work in Philadelphia want to be part of a major cultural center but are not ready to live in the heart of the city. Young, dual-income couples who love city life want to raise kids on a quiet street, where there is still a neighborhood.

Welcome to Main Street Development. Your house is a home in the city.

We build the dream. You live in it.

Delmar Heights

Views From The Top. Quality Underfoot.

Welcome to Delmar Heights, Main Street Development’s newest luxury community in Manayunk. For those who want to live on the top, the unique homes at Delmar Heights are built on real estate that can’t be duplicated. You can’t build a view like this. In the city, out of the center, touching suburbia. So close, yet so quiet. Lush greenery and nature greet you when you step outside. Along with unmatched views of the Philly skyline, you may spot deer in your backyard. Access to major highway routes or public transportation are just down the hill and you are minutes away from all the culture, dining, and entertainment Philly has to offer.

The expansive homes, 3,000+ feet with a roof deck and parking, are the product of quality craftsmanship. The homes feature top-quality finishes and fixtures and the same attention to detail was paid behind the walls. What you don’t see makes a home remarkable. Extra thick sub-floor? Check. Layer of cork to keep the “creaks” out? Check. Forget 2×4”s which are standard for framing, only 2×6” is acceptable to Main Street Development. The extra inches add noise reduction and insulation. The insulation is green which you will see more of when you pay less for energy. The rounded corners on the walls show our craftsmanship at every angle.

Nature created this unique view. Our nature makes us design and build with integrity.

We build the dream so you can live in it.

Living The Dream

Amazing Service.

I just purchased a condo from Glenn and WOW is all I have to say. You have got to check out The Post at Manayunk Ave. Beautiful.

~Suzanne B.

Main Street Development is the best.

I am very happy I bought one of the homes they built. I love it. It was everything on my wish list! I would buy my next home from them. They give you a lot for your money and the quality is better than anything else I looked at.

~Michael and Lories

Main Street Developement are so nice.

My deal was flawless and they came back to fix anything that I had a problem with. They never said no even after 2 years. They have an office on Main Street. Whenever I called to ask them a question they always called me right back. I love my house. I think they give you a great product, the floor plan and finishes are designer grade. I am very happy. I would buy another home from them. I give them 5 out of 5. The houses are beautiful and built very well.

~Karen M.

To Whom It May Concern

We are recent home buyers who purchased a townhome on Delmar Street in Philadelphia, PA from Glenn Falso. We met with Glenn the first time we viewed the home and he was incredibly welcoming and very professional from the start. He walked through the entire house with us and explained all the details, from the crown molding to the type of insulation, to the fixtures and finishes that went into building this beautiful home. He has been very attentive and welcoming in providing us with everything we requested during this home buying process. When we would call him with questions or concerns; he got back to us within a very reasonable amount of time. He completed the tasks we asked of him in a satisfactory manner. We moved into the home on April 27th and have been extremely happy! The quality and craftsmanship that Glenn and his crew have put into this home is top notch. I would highly recommend Glenn Falso as a builder. He is extremely friendly, easy going and very professional. He made our home buying process so much easier!

Sincerely, Peter M. Salce James F. O’Neal
