During last night’s meeting of Conshohocken Borough Council, council members voted 6-0 (Stokley recused himself due to his managing the property) to approve preliminary/final approval for subdivision and land development for 701 Jones Street and and 720 Spring Mill Avenue. These addresses are the Hale Pump property. Hale Pump, which operated in Conshohocken for over 100 years, consolidated its operations in Florida in 2012.
The vote gives the developer, Ty Borkowski, the ability to move forward with the redevelopment of the property into a mix of townhouses, twins and singles.
The top photo shows the the Spring Mill Avenue portion of the redevelopment. This portion will have 11 singles, two sets of twins and eight townhouses. All of the homes have two car garages, except for the townhouses, which have a one-car garage. The townhouses also have a driveway for one car. The garages/parking can are accessed through a private road that will run through the property.
This photo shows the Jones Street portion (East 7th at Jones Street). It will have four singles and two sets of twins. All homes have two car garages off an alley. There is room to park other cars in front of the garages if needed.
The developer’s attorney stated that the earliest demolition of the Hale Pump buildings could take place is November 2018 (and that would likely just be the Jones Street portion).
More to come.
