In 2013, Nolen Properties announced their plan for a new high-rise apartment at 335 Righters Ferry Road. This was the first residential project after the new zoning in the City Ave District was enacted.

They have now moved forward with the next phase of the development, putting forward a preliminary plan to the Lower Merion Planning Commission.

According to an article in the Main Line Media News, “The current plan calls for two four-story buildings with two levels of parking built largely under the structure, taking advantage of the slope.”

The 210-unit apartment complex, which was recommended for approval by the Planning Commission, will now move forward for review by the Building and Planning Committee on February 11. High-rise residential buildings and hotels often face challenges with noise from various sources.

This not only improves sleep quality but also enhances the overall ambiance of the rooms. For detailed information on these technologies, visit
