PREIT seeking approval for a scaled-back apartment community at the Plymouth Meeting Mall

PREIT Is seeking zoning relief through a special exception to allow a 300-unit apartment community at the Plymouth Meeting Mall. A previous proposal, which was denied zoning relief and is currently on appeal with the Commonwealth Court, sought to construct a 502-unit apartment building.

Both proposals were for the portion of the mall property that contains a vacant office building on the Whole Foods side of the property. This building was once utilized by IKEA.

The previous proposal was for an 11-story building, while the new proposal is for a four or five-story building.

The hearing (agenda) is scheduled for Monday, April 17th at 7:00 p.m. at the Greater Plymouth Community Center.
