The plans were first presented to the ZBA last year, with the variance being denied. When the development was presented a second time around in March, the project was granted the variance.

More on the homes from Naked Philly:

Putting the variance questions aside, the developers are building some simple but nice looking homes which will rise four stories and (wump wump) include front-loading garages. One of the homes was already listed for sale, quickly going under agreement at a list price of just under $600K. This price point is on the high end for this neighborhood, though the homes will include 3,000 sqft of living space, 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. The developers are calling the development Herron Park Homes, since Herron Playground is just a few doors away to the south.
