Bill Glazer's Keystone property group, which has been buying aging office buildings around Montgomery County, will propose an 18-story, 200-room hotel for the downtown corner of Fayette and Elm Sts. in Conshohocken, the Norristown Times-Herald's Carl Rotenberg reports here, citing county documents (Rotenberg had to use the Freedom of Information Act to shake those loose, and the county still held back some details, which the Times-Herald is challenging in court.)

Separately (see same story), Brandywine Realty Trust plans a new municipal building at the borough-owned former Bell of Pennsylvania (Verizon) site up the hill. Both projects to be presented to borough council Wednesday night.
