Proposal for a mixed-use development at former Exxon on Fayette Street in Conshohocken

On the agenda for the June 21st meeting on Conshohocken’s Zoning Hearing Board is a proposal to construct a mixed-use development at 701 Fayette Street in the borough. The property was an Exxon station dating back to at least 1988. It has been targeted for redevelopment at least three times by different developers that we know over the last few years including as a medical marijuana dispensary. None of those plans moved forward.

The current owner, CGEM, LLC, is proposing to knock down the existing structure on the site and construct a three-story building that would have retail/commercial space on the ground floor and five two-bedroom apartments on the second and third floors.

The zoning relief being sought applies to dimensional standards and parking requirements for the type of proposed development. The proposed uses of the property are not in question.

The zoning hearing will be held virtually on June 21st at 7:00 p.m. For full details on this zoning application click here and it starts on page 19. Details on how to join the meeting can be found on the second page.
