There's a Zoning hearing tomorrow night (Tuesday). Here's the gist of the agenda.
The first item is 1240 West Main (between Selma and Hartranft), what many of us know as the twin to the Gresh Mansion down the street. It was built by the brewer Adam Scheidt in 1890 and he purposefully copied the Gresh place in design. The house is one of Norristown's nicest pieces of architecture, built of Valley Forge marble.
Eadeh Enterprises now owns it and rents out 10 apartments inside--3 2-bedroom and 7 1-bedroom--plus 2800 square feet of office space. Eadeh is seeking a variance to continue 9 apartments and add 2 classrooms and an office to be used for the Headstart Program. Eadeh only own 3 properties in Norristown, one of which is the Tennis Club at 1529 Dekalb.
Once the hospital building comes down, this structure will tower over the landscape. We ought to make sure it looks decent.
If you want to protest or support or comment in any way about
these projects, go to the Zoning Hearing at 7 pm tomorrow night at Municipal Hall.
