New York Developer Proposes Construction of Two Warehouses on the Former Inquirer Printing Plant Site in Upper Merion

A New York real estate firm, DH Property Holdings, has put forth a plan to transform the former Philadelphia Inquirer printing plant in Upper Merion Township into a 746,240-square-foot warehouse complex. Their proposal envisions the demolition of the existing facility and the construction of two industrial buildings on the 46.3-acre site. One of these buildings will span 488,240 square feet, while the other will encompass 258,000 square feet.

Property records indicate that the developer acquired the site at 800 River Road from Radnor-based MLP Ventures in July 2022, with an officially listed sale price of just $1. During the recent Upper Merion Township Planning Commission meeting held on Wednesday, the proposal was deferred to a future meeting. After DH Property Holdings presented their plan, the planning commission decided that it was not yet prepared to provide a recommendation for either approval or denial to the township’s board of supervisors, who have the authority to greenlight or reject the proposal.
