Apartments planned in Greencastle

August 14, 2004|by RICHARD F. BELISLE

GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The owner of a 1.4-acre tract on Railroad Avenue plans to build four apartment buildings on the site with a total of 29 apartments, Borough Manager Kenneth Myers said this week.

The property is owned by David Binkley, who will develop the project.

According to the land development plan that was approved unanimously earlier this month by the Greencastle Borough Council, each of the four buildings will be 44 feet by 84 feet. Three will house seven apartments and the fourth will have eight, according to the plans.

A separate building will house a laundry and storage facilities for tenant use.

The former Servistar hardware building on the site will be razed to make room for the apartment complex.

Binkley's property is north of the Danco Products plant on Cedar Lane.

A 6-foot-high fence will be built to separate the two properties.

Binkley can apply for his building permit now that his land development plan has been approved.


No date has been set for the start of construction.

Binkley could not be reached for comment Friday.
