It’s funny how sometimes when you don’t drive a certain road for a long time the scenery can change so dramatically.
I had that experience last weekend when I was driving on Welsh Road after turning from Dresher. I could not believe all the construction for The Promenade, the Upper Dublin development that will have 400 apartments and 128,000 square feet of what BET Investments is calling “lifestyle retail.’’
A number of huge buildings are in various stages of construction and I found it hard to believe the scope of the project. Mammoth comes to mind.
On the other side of Welsh Road in Horsham, construction on West Gate is proceeding, giving the stretch of Welsh between the turnpike and Dresher Road the look of a large commercial hub that is nearing completion.
