Aquinas Realty Partners of Havertown has presented Norristown Council with several alternative development proposals for the former Kennedy-Kenrick Catholic High School property, writes Carl Rotenberg for The Times Herald.

The property had been approved for the development of a 208-unit senior housing proposal from Pottstown-based Hallman Retirement Neighborhoods in November 2013, but it never progressed any further.

The original $50 million project proposal from Hallman involved 46 units and a community center which would be built in the retrofitted high school building. The plan also included two multi-family buildings totaling 98 units, 28 town houses, and two single-family homes for residential staff.

Aquinas’s first alternative would demolish the school building and use its footprint to build a four-story main building of 98 independent-living units with another two 54-unit buildings developed over two parking garages.

The second option is a main three-story building of 110 units and two 48-unit, three-story buildings over a parking garage. The third option has above ground parking lots with a larger 206-unit building built in phases.

If there is a favorable response from council, the company may present its plans to the Norristown Planning Commission on July 12.
