On Monday evening Tisons Homes presented its plan for a residential development, Foundry Place, before the Zoning Commission. The development would subdivide the Hale Pump property into 35 lots and three open spaces. If you are trying to visualize the area, the homes on the far right of the image are across the street from Trattoria Totaro.
The community, as proposed on Tuesday, is a mix of single homes, duplexes and town homes. The singles and duplexes all include a porch and deck and every home, including the town homes, has its own garage. To create the single homes, the developer sought a relief of five feet, however, Zoning had concerns about this and chose to table making a decision on providing the relief. Due to this, the developer is considering replacing the single homes with duplexes, which would not require Zoning’s approval.
Above is a before and after of how the development will look along East 7th. This rendering shows the proposal with the single homes. If the single homes are not permitted, you would basically see the singles push together similar to the duplexes on the left.
The desire for new construction in Conshy area is great. The 22 town homes in West Conshohocken behind McDonald’s sold out in about a year. The Hale Pump property is in a much more desirable location, so the homes in this development should sell quickly.
We will keep you updated on when the project moves forward with a ground breaking. If you are interested in learning more about this development contact Tisons Homes.
