On May 19th, MoreThanTheCurve.com reported on a plan to construct two warehouses on the Romano property located at Belvoir and Gallagher Roads in Plymouth Meeting. The property is currently home to a bus depot and a field.
According to the letter sent to neighbors by the property owner, they had hoped to construct a residential community, but Plymouth Township was not supportive of that idea. Warehouses are an approved use within the zoning district in question.
As the below zoning map shows, the property is part of the industrial zoned land that exists if you follow Gallagher Road from the Metroplex to Belvoir Road. This specific portion is adjacent to some residential uses.
The plan calls for two warehouses (referred to on the renderings as Warehouse A and B).
Below is an image from the renderings that show what the zoning requires and what the plan provides. For example, within the zoning a building can only be 50′ high. The buildings as shown are 50′ high.
On June 3rd at 7:00 p.m., the property owners will go before Plymouth Council to present the plan. The meeting will be held at the Plymouth Township Building at 700 Belvoir Road in Plymouth Meeting.
