According to The Times Herald, Norristown Municipal Council heard a proposal for a new apartment complex planned for 900 Sandy Street at Tuesday night's meeting by Fort Washington-based Westrum Development Company.
The proposal was for a 149-unit, four-story luxury apartment building with an underground parking garage and additional parking lot on a total of 3.5 acres right next to recently re-occupied 770 Sandy Street. Westrum reportedly bought the site from P.H. Sentry Associates for $115,000 back in July.
Council also heard a proposal from Norristown-based Barton Partners for a new townhome development at 1202 DeKalb Street. That plan involved 24 two-story homes, each with a one-car garage. The homes would reportedly sell for $155,000 each according to the Herald.
Council reportedly directed Norristown solicitor Sean Kilkenny to support the zoning variances needed by the developer at a zoning hearing next week.
