Liberty Property Trust Seeks To Build Trexlertown Warehouses
The Upper Macungie Planning Commission heard preliminary plans for Liberty Property Trust's plans to subdivide property near Air Products.
Liberty Property Trust appeared before the the Upper Macungie Planning Commission Wednesday night to discuss a subdivision of existing parcels of land owned by the company and Air Products in Trexlertown.
The company plans to build two warehouse buildings at a cost of $150 million at Mill Creek Road between the Route 222 bypass and Hamilton Boulevard.
"We've been in front of the commission with a sketch plan," said Bill Bumber, senior project manager for Liberty Property Trust. "We're going to address (the Planning Commission's) comments and come back again.
The 200 acre plan is broken into two lots -- 88.9193 acres and 112.5816 acres.
The properties are currently zoned as light industrial.
The development will consist of warehousing on the west side of Mill Creek Road and "flex space" on the east side of Mill Creek Road.
Liberty proposes a subdivision of existing parcels owned by Air Products. Eight existing parcels owned by Air Products are to be subdivided into three lots.
Land development is proposed on the two lots, which would consist of two warehouses with associated parking, driveways and storm water management facilities.
A preliminary traffic study has been submitted to the township.
Bumber said construction could begin sometime in 2013.
