The Ardmore project is slowly, ever so slowly, moving ahead. Developer Carl Dranoff today told a meeting of Lower Merion Township officials and community leaders at the Merion Tribute House that the name of his $56 million mixed-use project on the Cricket Avenue parking lot will be "One Ardmore Place." He also presented renderings of the project, which has been revised as it has gone through the township's building process.The building is set to have 121 apartments, storefront space, and public parking. Here's some of the background on the project, taken from a December Inquirer story I wrote.
Don't go getting too excited (or agitated, depending on what you think of it) about the project. Between working out details through the redevelopment authority, determining exactly how many public parking spaces there will be (now, there are 175 in the Cricket Avenue lot), and other remaining tasks and processes that must occur, don't expect ground to be broken for at least another year. That leaves you plenty of time to take a a gander at the renderings, then read the background below them.
