A new apartment community is coming to Conshohocken in 2012. The community, the Courts at Spring Mill Station, will be at the corner of Hector and North Lane in what has been Reilly Foam. Home Properties, which already owns Sherry Lake Apartments in Conshohocken, states on its website:
The Company (Home Properties) has two land parcels under contract. Courts at Spring Mill Station is located in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. The project is on land that the Company holds a purchase option on and is in the middle stages of the entitlement process for approximately 385 apartment units, with all approvals expected by the end of 2011. Construction is expected to begin in the first half of 2012 and total estimated costs are approximately $79 million.
This property is in Whitemarsh, but has a Conshy address. I looked for a mention of this project on Whitemarsh’s website and found the following:
Ross Weiss, Esquire, stated that he was representing Home Properties. Mr. Weiss introduced Don Hauge and Ruth Hoang from Home Properties, Inc. He also introduced Joe Baran from Bohler Engineering and Lisa Thomas, landscaper from Glackin Thomas and Panzak. He explained this is a multi-family project in the Riverfront Development District at 1101 E. Hector Street that is currently Reilly Foam.
After this presentation there was vote to allow preliminary land development by the Whitemarsh Board of Supervisors in June 2011 and it passed 4-0.
The image at the top of the pdf posted on the website of Glackin Thomas and Panzak, which states:
This assignment included designing community gathering spaces, themed garden courtyards, and a pool area. This smart growth project also contains pedestrian connections to a SEPTA rail line and to the Schuylkill River Trail.
To see if there was any buzz about it online, I googled the name of the project and found a tweet from an interior design firm and some talk on construction related websites. The tweet is below:
I am working on a couple other similar stories of upcoming projects in and around the Borough. Keep you posted.
