Builders Eli Kahn and Gary Toll are planning on constructing a five-story building with approximately 181 “higher end” apartments in West Chester, writes Bill Rettew for The Daily Local News.
The 1.75-acre lot consists of the former site of Mitch’s Gym, the U.S. Social Security Office and Human Services past site, and the sites of Sylvester’s Gulf Station and Al’s Auto.
The building may rise as high as 60 feet, which is the borough limit for that part of the Town Center. Two floors will be used as parking areas to make sure that new tenants do not encroach on current neighborhood residents who park along the curbs.
“The last thing we want to do as developer is not have enough parking,” said Kahn.
The project would cost $75 million.
Among the many amenities, the project will feature decks, a pool, grilling stations, a dog wash station, and a bike repair area. There will also be a fitness center and yoga pads and a pretty dense landscaping screen.
The building will consist of 10 percent studios and 60 percent one-bedroom units, while 30 percent will be two-bedroom units.
