The legendary Tom Petty once said that the waiting is the hardest part.
At Cranberry Business Park on E. Kensinger Drive, the wait to build additional office space and a distribution warehouse took six years. Though the conditional use was at one time granted by the Board of Supervisors, that approval expired.
The project will now move forward – with slight alternations – after the Board of Supervisors again granted preliminary and final land development and conditional use on January 28 following a public hearing.
The two-phase, two-building project consists of 107,800 square feet of offices and the distribution warehouse on 14 acres. The larger of the two buildings consisting of the warehouse could break ground in 2021.
With the conditional use approval, the project will also bring a significant stretch of new sidewalk along W. Kensinger onto Unionville Road, paid for by the developer. That connection strengthens pedestrian access in the area, officials said.
