2904 Castlegate Avenue
400 Washington Road
The property at the corner of Washington Rd and Bower Hill Rd is owned by WBHP LLC (Zamagias Properties). The Commission approved a land development plan for condominiums in 2016. Grading work was done on the site but no construction occurred. The property is zoned as R-7 Residential (High Density, High Rise, Multi-Family, Limited Commercial). In 2019, Victor Wetzel Associates, on behalf of Zamagias Properties, applied for a text amendment to the Zoning Ordinance to make Townhouses a permitted use in the R-7 Zoning District. The Planning Board recommended approval of the Ordinance amendment at their January 2020 meeting. The Commission held a public hearing on the Ordinance in March 2020 and voted to approve the Ordinance amendment at their March 24, 2020 meeting. The Ordinance took effect immediately, so the developer is eligible to file a land development plan for a townhouse development on the site. To date, no updated plans have been filed. The land development plan, once filed, will go through the Planning Board review and recommendation process.
First National Bank (FNB) has a lease on the property at 315 Cochran Road. FNB is seeking to demolish the existing structure on the property and construct a commercial bank with associated parking and a drive-thru. The property is zoned C-2 Commercial. Banks fall under the definition of “Retail Sales and Services,” which is a use by right in the C-2 Commercial district. Drive-thrus are a conditional use in the C-2 Commercial district. The drive-thru portion of the application will require a conditional use approval. For a detailed page on this project, click here.
