Route 100 Lehigh Hills Project Scaled Down

Lehigh Hills Route 100 Development, LP now proposes 22 low-rise apartments at Route 100 and Glenlivet Drive, instead of up to 98 townhomes.

A Bethlehem developer once again revamped plans for housing units slated for construction at Route 100 and Glenlivet Drive in Fogelsville.

Lehigh Hills Route 100 Development, LP presented a plan featuring 22 low-rise apartments at the nearly 15-acre site to the Upper Macungie Planning Commission Wednesday night.

The previously approved plan, according to Jason Englehardt of Langan Engineering in Bethlehem, proposed construction of 98 townhouse units.

A revised plan was subsequently submitted for 22 low-rise apartment units and 87 townhomes on a mixed-use lot. However, township zoning issues required another revision of that plan.

The site is in a medium-high density residential zoning district. The development would be a permitted use in this area.

The commission will reconsider the plan and discuss it publicly at a future meeting.

Great, more developments in that area of the township. More strain on the police, fire, EMS, services..etc. Let us not leave one stone unturned, press on to 50+ kids per class in school. Keep approving developments Upper Macungie. Rt 100 is now Rt 78. By the way, try not to breathe in...truck fumes everywhere.

Yeah....more apartments where renters pay no taxes, but use our schools, our resources, so our "school board of Mensa" can justify yet ANOTHER TAX INCREASE! Say NO every now and then.....it used to work with children until we stopped doing that as well.
