Property adjacent to Sutcliffe Park to be auctioned in October previously reported on an auction that offered a small apartment building, garage, and undeveloped land near the intersection of Maple Street and West 8th Avenue in Conshohocken.

The auction was held in late July and it appears the apartment building and garage were successfully sold through auction. However, the 1.3-acre component (two lots compromising .44 and .8 acres) is now being advertised for a second auction in October. Sealed bids are due on October 13th.

The property sits between residences along West 8th Avenue and the 800 block of Maple Street and Sutcliffe Park. During a June 2nd meeting of Conshohocken’s Borough Council, the borough manager stated that the borough had a meeting scheduled with the property owner prior to the July auction. This was referenced after Councilmember Robert Stokley asked if the borough should consider purchasing the property due to its proximity to the park.

The status of the borough’s interest in the property is unknown. The topic hasn’t been further discussed publicly.

More to come.
