Oaks Developer Looking to Build Warehouse in Upper Hanover
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            An Oaks developer is looking to construct a 333,000 square-foot warehouse and two-story office building along Route 663 in Upper Hanover. Earlier this month, Audubon Land Development Corporation presented a sketch plan to the township, according to Steve Rothenberger, chairman of the board of supervisors. He said a representative of the company appeared at a public meeting earlier this month to introduce the plan.

            The warehouse and 12,000 square foot office would be constructed on the northbound side of Route 633, directly across from the entrance to the Northgate Development and the future Wawa, according to Rothenberger. The warehouse would include 54 loading docks and 79 trailer parking spaces.

            On June 15, the township's Zoning Hearing board will convene to consider four variance requests by the applicant on two parcels located near the intersection of   Northgate Boulevard in the municipality's LIC-Light Industrial and Limited Commercial District. The developer appears to own one of the properties.

            A third property in that vicinity will be included in the development, according to the supervisor. He said the corporation has secured an equitable condition of sale with the current property owner.

            According to Rothenberger, the applicant has come to a similar agreement for a 29.24 acre parcel that will be covered in the Zoning Hearing. Dr. Troy and Tracy Heuer, with a Barto mailing address, have owned the property -- currently zoned R - Preferential Assessment -- since June 2000, according to Montgomery County property records.

            If approved, the warehouse and office building would have direct vehicle access from an intersection with a traffic light on Route 663 near the entrance to the Northgate Development, according to Rothenberger. The supervisor did not offer any specific critiques on the proposal.

            Speaking generally, the supervisor explained that traffic is always an issue with every development. However, Rothenberger said the location is ideal for a warehouse.

            On Tuesday, the supervisor described Audubon Land Development as one of the largest property owners in the township. Five years ago, it purchased the former Quad Graphics and Brown Printing Building, covering 427,573 feet at 668 Gravel Pike, for $8.3 million, according to property records.

            The company has developed numerous residential, retail, industrial and commercial properties throughout Montgomery County. It also owns Hereford Estates, a residential community in the Berks County township.
