Marc D. Jonas, Esq., Secures Zoning Approval for Whitemarsh Property
After years of unsuccessful efforts to develop a split-zoned property on Germantown Pike in Whitemarsh Township, the property owner and developer retained Marc D. Jonas, Esq., to secure land use approvals for a development of townhouses and single family homes. Mr. Jonas, with the assistance of Michael E. Peters, Esq., first obtained approval of an amendment to the township zoning map to accommodate the proposed townhouses. The next step was a zoning hearing board approval which was granted, permitting the proposed mixed residential use development to move forward with other township approvals.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, Mr. Jonas has been named a Leader in Real Estate/Land Use law by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.
