Zoning hearing on the proposed redevelopment of former Exxon station in Conshohocken continued

On June 21st the Conshohocken Zoning Hearing Board held four hearings, including one that involves a proposal to redevelop the former Exxon station at 701 Fayette Street with a mixed-use building (retail on the ground floor with five apartments above).

No vote was taken connected to this proposal. Chairman Rick Barton requested that the borough’s engineer review the traffic study that was submitted with the zoning application. The hearing was continued to the July 19th meeting for further review.

In other hearings, the zoning heard board voted 4-0 to grant a special exception to allow Salon & Spa by Kimberly Gider to move from the 900 block of Fayette Street to the former home of Pasta Via along the 800 block. Gider plans to make the move by the end of the year.

The board also granted a one-year extension to Corson Street Acquistuon Limited Partnership for zoning relief it previously obtained. This proposal involves an apartment community along West Elm Street at Corson Street. Part of its zoning relief was to expire on June 15, 2021.

Due to the length of the meeting, the zoning hearing involving a proposal from Jasper’s Backyard to place a roof over its outdoor dining area was continued until June 21st.
