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.

That is the current plan, as far as I know.

flex can be warehousing or office space, can be converted to either or, sometimes distributors or delivery companies use them as a office / storage delivery, not high intensive tractor trailer warehousing, but delivery style trucks like potato chip companies etc

I dont care anymore, the township's charm is long gone. Replaced by warehouses and truck traffic. The people that protested were just ridiculed. The bypass project that was to save the area was hijacked by developers and made into an expressway complete with entrances and exits exactly where they owned land for future warehouses. The worst part is the township officials are proud of the nightmare they have created. They like the congestion, they think traffic is great. They are proud of the sex offenders that work here, they call it progress. ( check out the sex offenders registry to fact check )

I agree sick and tired. The only streets that have truck traffic restrictions are ones that certain influential people live on. Makes me sad. This used to be a nice place to live.
