Inquirer Spotlights King Street's 'Eastside Flats'

Apartments in the new development will rent for about $1,180 per month, according to the article.

Malvern's East King Street revitalization project was the subject of a Philadelphia Inquirer article Monday.

The article looks at the development as something to break the "stagnation" of taxable property values in the borough, and as the possible start of a wave of "projects that emphasize urbanization over suburban sprawl."  

There were also some new numbers regarding the apartments:

Kahn expects to move tenants into the first of two apartment buildings on the King Street site in August. About 30 tenants have already signed on, he said, and both buildings will feature luxury amenities such as a swimming pool, fitness center, and movie room. Apartments will rent for about $1,180 a month, depending on size.

The article didn't mention the name of the apartment complex—Eastside Flats—and misidentified the organic grocer moving in as Whole Foods, instead of Kimberton Whole Foods.

The reason we live in Malvern is for the Suburban feel. If we wanted urbanization we'd live in a city!

Be careful what you ask for; you just might get it.

I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of disappointed people when they move in there and then discover what King Street is really like, especially during rush hour.

Lets hope the new residents do not throw trash all around the side streets like the construction men do. I pick up 1/2 gallon empty plastic bottles, filty gloves, coffee cups, candy papers and plastic knives, forks and spoons. I can not believe mature grown construction workers are sooooo trasheeee.

I agree Jared. I have always loved Malvern for it's small town feel. I see this construction as one huge eyesore. I try not to drive down that part of King anymore because it infuriates me that this was allowed to happen. Malvern as I know it is dead.
