NORTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. — A plan to expand an under-construction apartment complex in North Whitehall has moved closer to the finish line.

The township Planning Commission on Tuesday reviewed a preliminary/final plan for Phase II of Timberidge Luxury Apartments, an apartment complex near Main Street and Levans Road now under construction.

The township Board of Supervisors approved Phase I in August. That section will have six three-story buildings and a total of 72 units.

Phase II of the plan would have four apartment buildings with 12 units each, or 48 total. That would bring the total number of units across both plans to 120.

The proposed new phase of the development would be on 6.8 acres at 2356 Levans Road.

The plan now will go before the township Board of Supervisors, the last township approval needed before construction.

The Planning Commission also recommended approval to a revised final plan for Views at Fells Creek, which would construct 27 single-family homes along Neffs Laurys Road.

The commission was scheduled to also discuss the proposed Rising Sun Subdivision, but the developer withdrew from the agenda.

That development would have 116 single-family homes on about 100 acres at 1321 Rising Sun Road, between Fells Creek and the Lehigh River. The land now is used for agriculture.

Residents previously raised concerns about the increased number of cars the project would bring to Rising Sun Road and Route 145.

Township Manager Randy Cope said that plan will be on the agenda for April’s meeting.
