Representatives from Lower Merion Township along with local business and civic leaders joined award-winning developer Cross Properties on May 15, 2019 for a ribbon-cutting celebration to officially open The Kelly, the first of three new multifamily to be built by Cross Properties as part of its $110 Million NoBA District revitalization plan.
The $50 million Kelly project is a four-story 140,000-square foot structure at 10 Union Avenue. It will have 109 apartments ranging in price between $1,600 and $4,070. Those units will include one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
There is also 9,000-square feet of outdoor entertainment space including a rooftop deck with a dog park. The target market will be young professionals, empty nesters and young families.
Once completed, each of the properties will have a different specialty with the mixed-use. The Kelly will have traditional commercial space. The Grant will offer office space and the Mayer will have a modern take on the food court with six to eight restaurants and bars. Those eating establishments will then have a communal seating area where customers can sit together no matter where they got their food.
The three new apartment buildings of the NoBA District will include 258 apartment units with 350 parking spaces. There will also be 15,000-square feet in lifestyle amenity space, 10,000-square feet of retail and 7,000-square feet of co-working office space.
The Kelly is located at 10 Union Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, PA.
