Over the next few months, two vacant lots in the downtown are expected to be under construction. The American House at Perkasie will sit at the corner on an 8,446 square-foot lot. It will be hold a new three-story building, with 5,889 sq. ft. of retail on the first floor, and ten residential apartments on the second and third floors. This is the site of the former American House Hotel, which was destroyed by the great fire of 1988.
A new townhouse development is being constructed at the intersection of Spruce Street and Constitution Avenue, the former site of Perkasie Industries. The proposed development will include 144 townhomes and is planned to be completed by the summer of 2016.
Perkasie Regional Authority, in conjunction with West Rockhill Township, will be extending water and sewer service along Old Bethlehem Pike. This extension, in keeping with the Township’s 537 Plan, will extend current services from just north of Ridge Road to the Roy Ann Diner. The Perkasie Regional Authority has been working with the property and business owners for the last several months along Old Bethlehem Pike and Old Mill Road on the design and scope of this extension.
The construction for this project is scheduled to begin on August 26, 2013. This project will complete the loop of the current walking path constructed along Three Mile Run Road to Willard H. Markey Centennial Park in East Rockhill Township. The current path ends at Schoolhouse Road and residents will walk southbound up Schoolhouse Road to where this part of the walking path will be located to connect to the park. The project has been awarded to the lowest bidder, A.H Cornell & Sons, Inc.
