Welcome to the Neighborhood?

There is no doubt that the Conshohocken zip code (19428) is a hot place to live.  I don’t have all the details yet, but there are two new major apartment complexes proposed to be built in Conshohocken.  One would be along West Elm on the river front and the second would the behind the Millennium complex on Washington Street (along the river).  I am not sure yet who is proposing the West Elm project, but O’Neill Properties, the developer of Riverwalk, Londonbury and the a couple of the office buildings along Washington is proposing the second.

There are several residential projects at various levels of development.  Here is a breakdown:

Lafayette Crossing (Townhomes) (West Conshy) (Sold Out)
22 Units x 2 = 44 Residents
Courts at Spring Mill Station (Apartments) (Whitemarsh) (Under Construction)
382 Units x 2 = 764 Residents
Apartments on West Elm Along River (Apartments) (Conshohocken) (Proposed)
352 Units x 2 = 704 Residents
Apartments Behind Millennium Along River (Apartments) (Conshohocken) (Proposed)
320 Units x 2 = 640 Residents
The Foundry (Townhomes, Duplexes, Singles) (Conshohocken) (Proposed)
35 Units x 2 = 70 Residents

Total Potential New Residents 2013-2015 = 2,202
(Lets say 2,000 due to some people living alone)

Please note that these projects are not all in the Borough of Conshohocken.  One townhome development is in West Conshy and one of the apartment complexes is in Whitemarsh.  This article is about Conshy as defined by the zip code 19428.

As you can see in the above graph from Wikipedia, the population of Conshohocken has declined over the past few decades and had a slight rebound between 2000 and 2010. The influx of the 25-35 singles or young couples in the Riverwalk, Londonbury and The Grande contributed to that growth.

I don’t have any more information to give you at the this time.  Will work on getting more details tomorrow.  However, if want to learn more about these projects, the two proposed apartment complexes and the proposed Wawa are all on the agenda at the next Planning Commission meeting on Tuesday, January 22nd at 7:00 p.m. at the ballroom at the Washington Fire Company.
