At it’s meeting on April 25, the The Nether Providence Township Board of Commissioners voted 4-2 to forward a sketch plan for a 32-unit development proposed for a wooded site on Wallingford Avenue to the township Planning Commission and county planners for their review.
The land is in the South Media section of the township, located adjacent to Sapovits Park had already been approved for 10 single-family homes on a cul de sac that would fetch an estimated $500,000 each. The board gave the approval for that plan on March 28.
But Malvern based developer Progressive New Homes has returned with an alternate plan calling for an eight-building development holding four duplex units each – for a total of 32 units – with the downstairs units likely to be priced at roughly $250,000 apiece and upstairs units at $375,000. The project would also be built closer to the busy roadway.
In order for the proposal to advance, the Planning Commission and county planners will have to support a change in zoning from R-3 to R-5 and thereby clear the way for the higher-density plan.
