A new four-story, 56-unit apartment building is being proposed for 114 Forrest Ave. in Narberth Borough. In September, Narberth council passed a provision allowing apartment or mixed-use buildings in the borough’s 5A zoning district if certain criteria are met — the building must be located on a corner and would be limited in height and stories. The proposed plan would then be permitted by conditional use.
Robert Kagan, one of the current owners of the existing property, said of the plan: “When I look at all the growth that’s going on in every community up and down the Main Line, I think that Narberth could use a little bit of growth as well.” No decision was made on the proposed plan, which was continued until after the December meeting.
