Developer plans to build 400,000 square foot warehouse on Route 15
A Texas real estate developer plans to build a 400,000 square foot warehouse on a 35-acre property on Route 15 in York County.
The Trammel Crow Company, which has an office in West Conshohocken, Montgomery County, submitted a conditional use application to construct the facility at 53 Route 15 in Carroll Township, between Route 15 and the York Road. A hearing was held in late August and township supervisors voted to approve the conditional use of the warehouse with a set of conditions, according to township manager Brandon Slatt.
The Trammel Crow Company has yet to submit a land use plan, which will ultimately need to be approved by township supervisors. Slatt said the company has yet to submit a land use plan.
The planned Class A cross-dock warehouse would include truck parking areas, passenger vehicle parking areas, access and circulation road, utility systems and related site improvements. The warehouse will be used for the storage, transfer and distribution of raw materials, manufactured goods and/or products.
There will be approximately 67 docks/loading/unloading docks and 74 truck/trailer bays. Access to the property will be via York Road. The proposal includes two parking lots with a total of approximately 293 parking spaces. The facility will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The property will have no petrol or diesel stations or storage tanks, nor facilities for servicing, servicing, washing or refueling vehicles outside.
It is expected that there will be 120 incoming and outgoing deliveries per day.
