107-unit housing plan proposed near Hempfield Sony plant

A Greensburg corporation wants to build a 107-unit planned residential development on a 40-acre site near the Sony Corp. facility in Hempfield Township.

KDK Associates, a limited liability corporation with offices at 857 S. Main St., Greensburg, on Wednesday presented its plans for the development to the township's planning commission.

According to KDK's application, the proposed development will be located on Route 119 north, approximately one-half mile west of old Route 119 and Technology Drive.

The development will be known as Wingreene Village and will contain 23 single-family houses, 54 condominiums and 30 multifamily units.

Most of the land is zoned for residential use, according to the application. KDK has no current plans to develop a 2.3-acre portion of the property that is zoned for business, said Steve Pilipovich, a Tri-County Engineering representative who presented the plan to the commission.

Benjamin Breniman, township planner, said the proposed plan will be sent to supervisors, who will schedule a public hearing before any action is taken.

The commission last night also received proposals from Greensburg Central Catholic High School and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Greensburg Central wants to build an addition to its gymnasium that would add 200 seats. The school also wants to make room for additional parking, said Pilipovich, who presented the school's plans.

An engineer with the state's Department of General Services, Richard Miller, presented a plan for a 3,500-square-foot addition to the DNA lab near the state police barracks on North Westmoreland Avenue.

Both plans will be reviewed by the township, then presented to the commission again before they are forwarded to supervisors for their consideration.
