The Bright Oaks apartment complex in Oakdale. Submitted by AR Building Company The Bright Oaks apartment complex in Oakdale is similar to one being developed in Monroeville.

A developer wants to construct an apartment building along Old William Penn Highway in Monroeville just around the corner from the construction site of a similar apartment complex.

A.R. Building, the same developer responsible for a 92-unit apartment building along Evergreen Drive, has asked council to rezone property from commercial to residential in order to build a four-story building with about 120 units.

If approved, the apartment would be located along Old William Penn Highway, near Duff Road and Evergreen Drive, where construction has started by the same company for a similar apartment building.

It would be A.R.’s third development in Monroeville, with another located along Fox Plan Road. Construction on Fox Plan’s 112-unit building is expected to start in August, said Jason Kambitsis, director of land development for A.R. Building.

Kambitsis has said all three apartment buildings will not exceed four stories.

Monroeville council will vote on rezoning the nearly eight-acre property on July 9. The planning commission recommended approval at its May 15 meeting.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
