This past Saturday, Audax Properties held a public information session on its redevelopment of the Prince of Peace Church property on Jolly Road in Plymouth Meeting (the property is across Jolly Road from the Greater Plymouth Community Center).
On Monday we spoke with John Thomas from Audax. He stated that 25-30 people attended the session. He shared that The biggest concerns from members of the public in attendance were stormwater and traffic.
According to Thomas, Audax hasn’t finalized its plan. Currently, it is considering approximately 20 townhomes that would be built in clusters.
The reason Audax believes this is the right approach for the property is based on research they did on who lives in the existing neighborhood and what type of housing stock is missing.
The townhomes, as currently considered, would offer a first-floor master bedroom, which provides the opportunity to age-in-place. The homes would be 30′ to 32′ wide with two floors (two extra bedrooms would on the second floor). There would be an HOA that would handle maintenance.
Thomas also expressed that he did not feel the community would have a big impact on local traffic, especially during rush hour, due to the target market being those who are near retirement or already retired.
More to come.
