radnor has some really ugly infill development in north wayne…is garrett hill next?

Coming to Radnor today to go to Penn Medicine, I took some back roads familiar to me and had to take pictures of what you see above. You’re driving on Plant Avenue in Wayne, and all of a sudden there is this hulking thing that looks like a jail basically.

What used to be there was a very ramshackle house. However at least the ramshackle house fit on the footprint of the property. I don’t understand how this thing was able to be built.

This thing is outsized, and the scale is so off for the little neighborhood it is in. I also wonder how down there where it floods when you blink your eyes during a little rain storm. I mean I’ve seen the flooding there when it happens it’s bad. The Gulph Creek shows no mercy.

And when I see a project like this it makes me fear for other areas where scale is very important like Garrett Hill. Because I have heard scuttlebutt that the current commissioner over there is all for changing the zoning. That’s nuts.

There’s nothing wrong with little neighborhoods remaining little neighborhoods. And this just makes me sad.
