BT Dreshertown LLP - Mixed Use Proposal - The Promenade
BET Investments proposed an amendment to the Township’s Office Center zoning district to allow the construction of a mixed use development on a 25-acre site at the corner of Dreshertown and Welsh Roads. This tract was previously approved for office construction that did not occur. This mixed use plan consists of 402 apartment units; a 6,500 sq.ft. sit-down restaurant with outdoor seating; a 2,000 sq.ft. coffee shop with drive through; a two-acre park and approximately 130,000 sq.ft. of non-residential/commercial space.
The site will be linked by internal roads to an adjacent 50-acre site on Dreshertown Road to be developed with 115 age-restricted single homes. That project is known as BT Dreshertown. A preliminary subdivision and land development plan for BT Dreshertown was approved by the Board of Commissioners on February 14, 2017. Final land development approval remains outstanding and is currently under review.
