Porsche Coming to Chrin Commerce Centre

Porsche announced last night at the Palmer Township Supervisors Meeting that they plan to build a 130,000 square foot facility in the Palmer Township section of the Chrin Commerce Centre. The building will also include a 15,000 square foot indoor test track for driving their latest vehicles and reviewing information with dealers. Formal plans will be submitted once Palmer Township rezones the area to allow projects such as this. Supervisors recommended 3-0 to send the recommended changes to the Planning Commission.

This facility will replace the planned Porsche facility that was proposed and approved along Newburg Road in Lower Nazareth Township. That deal fell through due to the large number of restrictions Lower Nazareth put on the industrial park.

While in Palmer, I believe that this is a huge win for the area overall. The Express Times has an article here. Stay tuned - I'm sure there will be more to follow.
