Save the Parking Lot

from on .

Help us save the Cricket Avenue Parking Lot!

As part of an effort to revitalize Ardmore, Lower Merion Township Commissioners have moved forward a plan that would develop the public Cricket Parking Lot, a hub for many local businesses, by turning it into "One Ardmore Place," a high end luxury apartment building with retail space and a multi-level parking garage that at its maximum height would reach eight stories, towering above the historic buildings on Lancaster Ave. 

The most recent proposal comes from Carl Dranoff, a Philadelphia real estate mogul whose projects include "The Victor" in Camden and "777 South Broad" in Center City.  Dranoff's fifty-six million dollar project would involve up to two years (or more) of construction.

Our short film, "The Parking Lot" introduces you to those who live, work, and shop along Cricket Ave. and shares a slice of life that we have all experienced at one time or another, but probably few of us have stopped to appreciate.

It is still not too late to save the Parking Lot.

By signing this petition, we will send the following letter on your behalf to the Commissioners of Lower Merion Township, urging them to reconsider this project.  Many voices are simply not being heard by the Commissioners and they need to hear from you directly.
