CONSHOHOCKEN, PA — Borough Council held a conditional use hearing Wednesday night on a proposal to build 619 apartments at 401 Washington Street proposed by the O’Neill Properties Group of Upper Merion.
The four buildings will have four stories of apartments built over a single level of parking. Part of the 10.7-acre parcel is located in the floodway of the Schuylkill River.
The conditional use was recommended by the Conshohocken Planning Commission with several land development requirements, said Christine Stetler, the borough Director of Community Development. Part of the parcel is located in Whitemarsh.
Attorney Edmund Campbell Jr., representing the developer, O’Neill Properties Group, said the conditional use would allow the walking trail, two storm water outfalls and several rain gardens to be built within 100 feet of the Schuylkill River bank.
