The 233 rental units at the Station at Bucks apartment complex on Jacksonville Road are nearly sold out, and the property owners plan to build even more.
Representatives from real estate developers J.G. Petrucci Company presented a project to the Warminster Board of Supervisors that will add 151 more units, a lighted intersection and a 50 car parking lot at the SEPTA train station.
According to attorney Ed Murphy, who represented Petrucci at the meeting, the plan also included changing an existing structure initially intended for retail space into 11 more apartment units.
Before any shovels hit the ground, the project needs to go through the township's approval process starting with an application for several zoning waivers. For example, Petrucci plans to ask the zoning board to waive the impervious requirements.
The limit is 65 percent, but the apartment construction already put Petrucci over the top at 72 percent. The addition of a 50-car parking lot would raise that number to 76.5 percent, according to the preliminary plans.
The supervisors did no indicate one way or the other whether the waivers should be waived. Chairman Leo Quinn urged residents who have any issues with the proposal to contact the township.
