Proposed apartment building on July 18th agenda for Conshohocken’s Zoning Hearing Board

On the July 18th agenda for Conshohocken’s Zoning Hearing Board is an application that seeks to bring a residential use along Washington Street near the riverfront.

The property involved (marked above with a red x) sits between the Millennium I and Millennium II office buildings (20 Ash Street and 225 Washington Street). It currently serves as a parking lot. It is owned by Millennium Waterfront Associates II, LP, which is connected to Brian O’Neill who developed much of Conshohocken’s riverfront.

From the agenda:

The petitioner is seeking variances from and/or an appeal of a zoning decision from Section 27-1502 and Section 27-1511 of the Conshohocken Zoning Ordinance related to the proposal to development the subject property with a residential use.

As has reported, Conshohocken’s borough council recently voted to remove residential uses from the riverfront due to concerns about the impact of the thousands of new residents over the next few years as the under-construction and already approved apartments are completed.

During the May 4th meeting of Conshohocken’s borough council, there was a discussion about this zoning application, which involves 78 residential units. The members of the borough council voted unanimously to send the borough’s solicitor to the hearing about this application to oppose it.

The meeting is scheduled for July 18th at 7:00 p.m. at Conshohocken’s Borough Hall at 400 Fayette Street.
