A 48-townhome development could be on the horizon in Towamencin Township.
W.B. Homes has requested a public hearing for a zoning change of a 12-acre parcel on Wambold Road at Mainland Road, next to the former Mainland Inn, according to The Reporter Online. The parcel was created by the Route 309 Connector Project.
The newspaper reports Towamencin Township Supervisors agreed to the hearing “through consensus” at its Jan. 23 meeting.
The property would need to be changed from Light Industrial to Mixed Residential for the development to occur, according to the report.
The 48 townhomes would be in 12 four-unit buildings, according to the article.
The tract is owned by the Heck family, who has been unsuccessful in selling the property since 2008, according to the article.
