Towamencin Township

Plans for a new residential community in Towamencin have cleared another hurdle.   The township supervisors Wednesday night approved preliminary plans for the Thorndale development on Allentown Road across from the Towamencin Village Shopping Center.   The plans call for 126 carriage homes on 43-acres.   W-B Homes is the builder.   The units will be priced in the $400,000 range and feature plenty of amenities including a two-car garage.   The project includes widening northbound Allentown Road in front of the development.   A traffic light will also be placed at the entrance into the new community to control access into it as well as the shopping center on the other side of the street.
