A townhouse development could be coming to Aspinwall.

The borough planning commission will hear plans for as many as 16 townhouses to be built off of Center Avenue, between Sixth and Seventh streets next week. The more than two acres is currently vacant.

Bob Stern of Center Avenue Development said various other companies have tried to develop the site but he believes that the number of homes proposed for the site will make this plan a success.

“It was a property that had various proposals over a 30-year period and no one ever pulled it off,” Stern said.

Stern also believes that location will be a factor.

“Aspinwall has become very desirable,” Stern said.

A development at that location should generate interest for potential residents.

“I think doing nice townhouses in that location will be met with a great demand at this point,” Stern said.

Preliminary plans for the site are being finalized for presentation next week. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the borough building on Commercial Avenue.

Stern said if everything proceeds smoothly, construction could begin early next year with units available in 2014.
