A ‘Yes’ Answer Could Shorten His Walk To The Office

POTTSTOWN PA – Attorney Andrew Monastra would like nothing better than to live where he works.

Monastra, a Pottstown lawyer who specializes in matters dealing with residential and commercial real estate, and who also serves as underwriting counsel to credit unions, has asked Borough Council if he can convert the third floor of the office building his firm occupies at 740 E. High St. into a residence for himself.

An advertisement published Monday (March 17, 2014) indicates the property, owned by Grand Review Holdings LLC, has two other tenants with which Monastra also is affiliated, Heartland Abstract and Venture Settlement. It is located in a Traditional Town Neighborhood Zoning District, and a residence there could be allowed as a conditional use if approved by the council.

A hearing on the application is scheduled for April 9 (2014; Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m. in Borough Hall, 100 High St.. It is open to the public.
