Giant Food Stores wants to build 10 gas pumps and a 5,000-square-foot convenience store — all open 24/7 — near Five Points Plaza on the property of the former 309 & Horsham Road Plaza, according to Dan Sokil of The Reporter.
Montgomery Township Supervisors authorized Jan. 28 a continuance of a public hearing to March to consider a conditional use application from Giant to permit construction of the gas station on the site, according to the article.
The property is located on the northbound side of Route 309 and southbound Horsham Road, near the Five Points intersection; it formerly housed businesses such as Golf Etc., Superstarz Kidz Salon and Mattress Giant, according to the article. The property is between Route 309/Bethlehem Pike and Horsham Road, and between the old Montgomery Township Schoolhouse and a Hess gas station.
The strip mall would be demolished, if approved, according to the report.
More time was needed by applicant Giant Food Stores to develop a better traffic impact report, according to the article.
