LIMERICK PA – The township’s three-month-old zoning for a “Main Street district,” meant to encourage aesthetically pleasing real estate development that evokes a village-like feel, may have one of its first prospects at property located next to the Montgomery County district court office on Ridge Pike, The (Pottstown PA) Mercury newspaper reported Monday (Dec. 10, 2012).
A representative of Leonard DelGrippo, president of DelGrippo Enterprises of Norristown PA, last week (Dec. 4, 2012) introduced the Board of Supervisors to a proposed mixed-used building at 511 W. Ridge Pike. It would include retail stores on the lower level, and 12 residential apartments above. The developer thinks it would fit “perfectly” with the board’s intent when it created the district in September, board members were told.
DelGrippo owns the court building and a single-family home on the property to its west, The Mercury reported. Under the proposal, he would raze the house and allocate excess parking outside the court for residents of the upper apartments.
