Applicant returns following a denial of the September application by the Board of Commissioners of a proposal to replace two existing nine-light storefront windows and a main entrance door with new single-pane aluminum-frame windows and an aluminum-frame door. New design shows simulated transom divisions at the top of the storefront windows.


Application No.         17-22

            Property: 929 Merion Square Road, Gladwyne, PA 19035

Applicant appeared before the HARB in July and September for this development proposal on a triangular property bound by Old Lancaster Road and the railroad. Applicant seeks approval to demolish a contributing property to the historic district at 503 Old Lancaster Road. Also required for the development to proceed as designed are an Historic Resource Inventory amendment (to classify the remaining contributing house at 507 Old Lancaster Road) and approval of Conditional Use incentives to reduce setbacks and allow for side garages (instead of front-loading attached garages) on a proposed twin residence. An additional single-family residence would be constructed on the east end of the site.
