Lower Merion Township's southeast corner is targeted for more than 1,000 new apartments in three develpoments: O'Neill Properties' 600-unit plan for the former Connelly Container property at Righters Mill Road above the Schuylkill; Nolen Properties' plan for a nearly 300-unit 12-story building at 335 Righters Mill; and Penn Properties' plan for 300 more nearby.
