Spruce Hill Zoning meeting to discuss “by right” construction of 6-story residential building at 4125 Chestnut St

September 6, 2017

Residents are invited Thursday, Sept. 7th to the Spruce Hill Community Association Office at 257 S. 45th St to hear about new development projects in the area. Three items will be on the agenda, including a proposed “by-right” construction of a 6-story residential building at 4125 Chestnut St. “By right” means that the property’s zoning allows the construction of the building without any additional permission.

The new building would replace the “Wash N Lube” car wash on the 4100 block of Chestnut. The initial plans for this location were revealed earlier this year and included construction of a 17-story residential tower with commercial space and an underground parking lot, but were later modified. 

Thursday’s meeting will also include discussion of two commercial use applications – on the ground floor of the proposed residential building at the southeast corner of 46th and Spruce and at the new residential building at 43rd and Sansom.

All are welcome to attend the meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m., and ask questions.

    This “by right” stuff needs to be eliminated before it’s too late. How do we go about achieving this?

    The previous proposal of 17 stories was a by right construction with nothing having to be said to RCO such as yours. Now it has been reduced to 6 stories from 17 and another developer buys the site to build. My question is how could a by right 17 story plan be changed to 6 stories when there was nothing a RCO could do legally about this?
