East King Street

Background

A significant redevelopment project in the Borough of Malvern was proposed by 237 King Partners, LLC, and approved by Borough Council. The area under development is on the North side of East King Street, east of 231 E. King St. It includes the former Fisher Feed and Amerigas sites, running East to the Greene Country Landscaping Company location. An additional area to be developed is located in Willistown Township, west of the Rusticraft location.

The Malvern portion of the area is sited wholly within Planning Area #10 of the Malvern Borough Comprehensive Plan. The redevelopment area is designated as a C4 – High Intensity Commercial District; regulations and standards are governed by Article XV of the Malvern Borough Zoning Ordinance.
