The Lower Pottsgrove Board of Commissioners Thursday got their first official look at a major project near the Sanatoga Interchange that zoning they created two years ago was designed to encourage.
Called Sanatoga Green, the proposed project would sit on about 50 acres neat the Limerick outlets off Evergreen Road.
It calls for the construction of 508 housing units -- 342 apartments and 166 townhouses, a 100-to 110-room hotel and 60,000 square feet of medical offices.
The developers have access to a large 42-acre parcel, and several smaller ones with frontage on Evergreen, Linfield and Township Line roads, all adding up to roughly 50 acres.
The presentation to the commissioners included some requests for some changes to the new zone, a discussion of how much parking might be needed.
The commissioners held off on making any decisions or taking any official action, citing the fact that they had just hired a new township solicitor -- Charles D. Garner Jr. -- and wanted to run some of the proposals past him before making any decisions.
We'll have more extensive coverage in The Mercury in the next few days.
